Wearing black ribbons to condemn the incident, the animal lovers are planning to hold a massive protest next Sunday at Jakkasandra to create awareness about animal rights.
At the event, Dog experts gave an insight about how to maintain and groom their dogs at home. 

The right breed

Dr Pawan Kumar, Veterinary doctor said that it is very important to choose the right kind of pet before bringing a pup into a family. 

"Everyone in the house must co-operate when it comes to having a pet, also it is necessary to choose the right breed depending on the space you can spare for your dog," he said.

A pet must be examined thoroughly before bringing it home so that it does not develop into a serious problem later on, he added.

He said that if every house adopts a stray dog just by giving food, there will be no menace of stray dogs at all. 

If the owner is planning to own a female pet, it is important to breed the dog or to neuter them or they might develop ovarian problems. 

Dogs also develop epilepsy and Alzheimer's disease when they fail to recognise their master, he added.
