2nd Rhebokskloof - Drakenstein Animal Rescue Dog Walk & Fun Day
Rhebokskloof Wine Estate, situated in the magnificent Paarl valley, is nestled between the granite hills of the Paarl Rock mountains, creating a unique micro-climate.
The picturesque Estate boasts award-winning wines, a restaurant and is the perfect location for weddings, and events. Rhebokskloof Wine Estate is very child friendly, with jumping castles, a trampoline, jungle gym and pony rides over weekends.
A perfect place to have a dog walk!
We will have different routes to walk your dog.
- There will be a Treasure hunt on route where you and your dog can try to find some hidden treats.
- We will have different competitions with lots of prizes.
- Lucky draws will be done.
- Food stalls will be available
We will have a FlyBall demonstration at our Doggy Walk. If you do not know what FlyBall is then read this:
Flyball racing is a fast and exciting sport, not only for the spectators and handlers, but for the dogs as well. There are four dogs on a team [sometimes with a reserve]. As the teams line up the excitement builds. With each dog eager to compete, sometimes it's all the handler can do to hold their dogs. A whistle signals the start of the race. The first dog from each team is released. Racing side by side, each dog races down its lane, skillfully hurdling a set of four jumps set 3.05 meters apart. At the far end of each lane is a Flyball box. Each dog must release the mechanism that releases a tennis ball. Hopefully, the dogs will catch the ball (if not, the dog must retrieve the ball) and return over the four jumps with the ball. As each dog crosses the start/finish line another eager dog is released. The lead changes several times as dogs and handlers alike make mistakes. Sometimes dogs chasing loose balls will miss a jump, or get turned around all together and return over the wrong set of jumps. The first team to have all four dogs successfully completed a “clean” run wins the heat.
