Dog Train­ing Sem­i­nars in Fri­day Harbor!

Last spring the Fri­day Har­bor Ani­mal Shel­ter (APS) was invit­ed to make a pre­sen­ta­tion to Jim McNairy’s Civics class for a $1000 grant to meet the needs of the com­mu­ni­ty and our orga­ni­za­tion.  The funds were pro­vid­ed through the SJI Com­mu­ni­ty Foun­da­tion as a way for the class to study non-prof­its and their place in the com­mu­ni­ty. After lis­ten­ing to pre­sen­ta­tions from sev­er­al orga­ni­za­tions, our need for obtain­ing train­ing for our dogs was cho­sen and the grant was award­ed to APS.

In order to ben­e­fit Fri­day Harbor’s large com­mu­ni­ty of dog lovers, we decid­ed to bring a series of train­ing sem­i­nars to the island taught by respect­ed region­al trainers.

The sem­i­nars include: “Reac­tive Dog Work­shop” — March 28th, “Dog Sense” – April 11th, and “The Fun and Mag­ic of Click­er Train­ing” – April 25th.

Each sem­i­nar will be 9am-4pm and held at Ani­mal Inn on Boyce Rd in Fri­day Har­bor. Because of the grant, the cost is just $65. If you attend with­out a canine com­pan­ion the cost is $40.  In addi­tion, each sem­i­nar will allow 3 par­tic­i­pants to apply for a reduced fee of $35 in exchange for agree­ing to become a shel­ter dog pal.  Call the shel­ter @ 378‑2158 or email  for more infor­ma­tion and a pack­et to sign up for the seminars.

See you there!
