Melanie Monteiro, the acclaimed author of The Safe Dog Handbook, will conduct an incredibly informative two-and-a-half hour seminar and interactive demonstration on dog first aid and dog safety at the Zoom Room on Feb. 5 at 3:30 pm. This is information that all dog owners absolutely should know.
Please note: You may attend this seminar with or without your dog. Two-and-a-half hours is a long time for most high-strung dogs. But if your dog will be calm and undistracted in this setting, you are welcome to bring him. (One dog maximum per human handler.) If you do bring your dog, you will be able to try out many of the techniques you’ll learn on your pup. But the seminar will be just as valuable – or potentially more so – if you opt to leave your more distractible pup at home.
Topics to be covered include:
- Dog CPR
- Canine Heimlich
- Basic dog first aid skills
- How to put together a dog first aid kit
- How to prevent the most common dog accidents
- Dog Safety tips when traveling
The cost of the two-and-a-half-hour seminar with Melanie Monteiro is $30 per person (not per dog). Space is limited!
