Kiwi Aversion training
March 14 - March 15
Our first kiwi aversion training session of 2021 will be held on Sunday, March 14, 2021 In Whakatāne we are blessed to have kiwi living so close by; indeed for those of us who are lucky enough to live near a scenic reserve, there are kiwi practically living in our backyards! However, because our local kiwi live in such close proximity to urban areas they are in constant danger from threats such as cars, cats, and dogs. Dogs in particular, can pose a serious threat to kiwi when walked through scenic reserves in ‘kiwi zones’.It doesn’t take a huge hunting dog to kill a kiwi – even a playful or curious bite can damage a kiwi’s internal organs and result in death.
You can minimise this risk by getting your dog ‘Kiwi Aversion’ trained at our next training session at the end of White Horse Drive Whakatāne (in the carpark). (All dogs must be older than the age of 6 months).
Bookings are ESSENTIAL due to limited training spots. To book please contact Teua via email: [email protected], or phone: 021 590 019 (between 6-7pm).
