Some great news, a teary goodbye, and three invitations
Goodbye, Hagrid. 2001-2010
The move into our wonderful new facility coincided with another momentous change: We lost our beloved mascot, Hagrid the black German Shepherd. You may remember him as Ray and Diana's “son” and Travis' “brother” or simply as the gentle giant who greeted you during special events. After almost nine joyous years on this earth, he was reluctantly put to rest due to complications with an infection. We miss him dearly and invite you celebrate his joy for life with us.
An invitation (#1)-- Saturday October 2nd
Hagrid's trainer, author Susan Overfield (Saturday Dogs), has offered to host one of her nationally acclaimed BOSS dog clinics for the Amavi family in remembrance of him. Her methods are NOT fear-based, and the shelter dogs she works with have a 100% adoption rate. She will show you how your dog or puppy can have good manners WITHOUT repeated dog-obedience classes. Based on dog psychology/communication and dog behavioral modification for both the owner and dog, the class will teach you how to tap into your pet’s natural responses in order to achieve the greatest consistency of behavior.
Sound too good to be true? Check out her training with your own eyes:
