Dogs were put through their paces at a canine agility course aimed at improving animal health in Teddington this week.

Pets and their owners congregated at Teddington Cricket Club on Wednesday, May 7, as part of an initiative to improve animal health launched by the Pet Food Manufacturers Association.

The campaign launch saw pet owners meet animal experts on hand.

The obstacle course for dogs was the first in an eight-month series of pet health events, which include free weigh-in sessions and exercise activities.
