Starting January 31, 2022, we’ll be offering Therapy Dog Training. This class prepares you and your dog for social visits to hospitals, nursing homes, reading programs at schools, libraries, and visits to other public settings. Therapy dogs and their owners work together as a team to improve the lives of other people. Dogs must have Canine Good Citizenship certification that was received after they were 1 year old to enroll in this program.
Classes are on Mondays at 2 pm and Tuesdays at 8 pm.
Registration closes on Thursday, January 27 at 9 pm.

Enjoy that snow, but remember that frostbite is also dangerous for your dog. Look for a bluish-white hue on the skin due to lack of blood flow. Ice may also form around the affected area. Contact your vet if you suspect your dog may have been affected.
Short spurts outside today … and for you too. If it’s too cold for you, it is for them too.
