2:20 NZ Society Series - Amelia Nurse - Dogs are part of many of our families, and we love them. But they take a lot of care. And exercise. With around ten thousand dogs in Wellington alone, that means a lot of designated dog exercise area. Miraz Jordan runs a website called Run Spot Run which lists and reviews dog exercise areas in the region. Amelia Nurse joins Miraz and her dogs for a stroll along Oriental Parade on a typically windy Wellington day.
