Our first ever BLUEGRASS HOWL & YOWL Benefit takes place at Living Free on Saturday, Oct. 25th. We’ll have lots of updates over the next 2 weeks. Some of the events we’ll be featuring:
URBAN MUSHING – Also known as Dry Land Mushing, this is a mini-Iditarod without the inconvenience of snow, subzero temperatures and a 1000-mile course.
NOSE WORK – Jamie Bozzi, A Certied Canine Behavior Consultant will show you how to channel your dog’s instincts to become a shaggy Sherlock Holmes. Developing these skills is a great form of physical and mental exercise for your dog.
TREIBBALL – A herding game that’s a lot of fun and helps strengthen the bond at both ends of the leash.
HOLLYWOOD HOUNDS – In entertainment, the conventional wisdom is “Never work with animals or kids.” We’ll show you why that’s a thing of the past, and how dogs are trained to perform in the exacting environment of film and TV production.
CANINE ETIQUITTE 101 (A Crash Course for Humans) – Ever wonder why dogs do the crazy things they do? Our own Edgar Santiago and Trainer Glen Massie will show you how your behavior affects theirs. You owe it to yourself (and your shoe collection) to watch this impressive demonstration.
AGILITY – Wendy Jeries of “Saved for Service – Rescue & Training for Dogs and Birds” will demonstrate agility… and then have our dogs give it a try. She’ll also demonstrate how service dogs are trained for Search & Rescue.
AVIAN ANTICS – Wendy also rescues exotic birds, and has introduced them to popular culture. As a result, these birds now play basketball, ride bikes, sing, dance and chat like they’re on Ellen. Or Charlie Rose. Depending upon the bird.
