Tails set to wag at playdate for beagles

KAYLA Schmidt will host her first "Beagle meet" on Sunday, and she's hoping her pup Charlie can make some new beagle buddies.

Ms Schmidt has organised to meet 14 other beagle owners from the Gladstone region at the dog park on Blain Dr.

"I saw a lot of the other breeds doing meet-ups like huskies, french bulldogs and german shepherds so I thought we could see how many we can get together at once," she said.

Ms Schmidt said she was excited to see what she can learn from fellow owners, too.

The 21-year-old said beagles were a clever breed, and learning tricks was a piece of cake for eight-month-old Charlie.

"He can sit, lay down, shake hands, high five, find the cat and jump on and off the lounge," she said.

The playdate is on at 10.30am on Sunday at Webb Park, on the corner of Blain and Palm Dr.

All beagle owners are welcome.
