    Default AKC Responsible Dog Ownership Day event

    Has anyone ever been to one of these events? They are having one in my area this weekend. I thought it might be a good outing for us and Toby (if he is allowed to go, I emailed the rep in charge of it and waiting for answer). If you've gone to one of these events, was it worth your time? I know the military dogs (Woohoo! Military represented ) will be there along with the customs dogs.

    We are going to the Puyallup one if I can talk my husband into it. Thought it might get Toby out with people and dogs

    I have never been but it turns out the Humane Society of Charlotte is having something the same day!

    This is what the one in Charlotte says:
    "DescriptionFREE Canine Good Citizen Testing, Vendors, FREE Dog Training Advice by K9-BootCamp, 'Frosty Paws' for the first 25 dogs that visit K9-BootCamp, $5 Nail-Trims, Dog Rescues, Obedience Games and Demos and more

    But the Humane Society of Charlotte is having a Canine Communication Seminar which seems really interesting.

    """"
    Topics include:
    Talking to each other- dog to dog and dog to human
    Dominating your dog and why its a bad idea *I like that
    Learn how what appears to be disobedience is just miscommunication.

    Maybe I can try to do both but the seminar is without dogs.

    WOW sounds interesting! I hope you can make it to both. If you can make it, could you tell me what they say about the miscommunication

    Thanks! The one in renton sounds fun too: "We will help educate dog owners about the AKC Responsible Dog Owner program. The clubs will be offering AKC Canine Good Citizen testing, fun activities for dogs and lots of information for dog owners. Advice and education on pet care, training and your dog's health will be available. Don't have a dog or not sure what type of dog to get? Check out the many breed information booths or adopt a new best friend from one of the local rescues. Need the perfect gift for a dog lover? Come shop our vendors. Plus, goodies & giveaways for everyone! Rain or shine."

    That one sounds good too! I wish the traffic wasn't so horrible here. It makes traveling to these places frustrating. Of course after living around the DC area, this state is not that bad LOL
