Toni Franklin stays in touch with what’s happening with dogs on the island.…here’s the latest:
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 firstname.lastname@example.org for more information and a packet to sign up for the seminars.
See you there!
