LARGE meeting room 6-8pm 

NUTRITION – There are a lot of choices out there today, and some great marketing behind all of it. It can be so confusing! Spend an evening learning about kibble, wet, dry, home cooked, and raw. Why our dogs nutrition differs from our own, and how we need to make an effort to meet their nutritional requirements for optimal health. We will have a variety of speakers, round table discussion, demo's, samples, and information. If you want your dog to feel good and act well, then nutrition is something you should know more about. We give a nutrition talk about 3-4 times per year and they rock! Seriously, the more you learn the better it is for your dog!

PIRATES … oops I mean the ADOLESCENT DOG! – There is no developmental phase that is more frustrating for dog owners. Come to a fun and fascinating discussion on why they do what they do, what they are going through, and how to live with relative peace (kind of) during this phase. There is no need to be frustrated if you learn how to work with your teenage dog effectively. Fun, fast paced, and information packed!
