CHEO Teddy Bear Picnic

Responsible Dog Owners of Canada invites you to bring your children to see us at the CHEO Teddy Bear Picnic on Saturday, June 22nd on the grounds of Rideau Hall.

Then they can meet one of the therapy dogs, so they can practice what they learned. Our booth will be open from 8:30a.m. to 1:00 p.m. We hope you will come and visit us.
