Comments:Rattlesnake Avoidance Training for DogsWHAT: Tracy Presson, a highly-regarded, professional dog trainer, is back at the Mountains Restoration Trusts Headwaters Corner in Calabasas, for another successful rattlesnake avoidance training clinic for dogs. With her proven method, Tracy will teach a dog to recognize and avoid the danger of rattlesnakes. Puppies as young as six months old can be taught to recognize rattlesnakes. Tracy Pressons methods are safe and humane, for both the dogs and the rattlesnakes. Space is limited. ($70 Fee).Register online at www.mountainstrust.org or call: (818) 591-1701 x. 2.WHO: Each dog personally trained by Tracy Jenson-Presson ,High On Kennels www.highonkennels.usWHEN: March 19th / 20th and April 16th /17th 8:00 am 5:00 pm (by appointment)At Headwaters Corner Masson HouseMay 14th /15th and June 11th /12th8:00 am 5:00 pm (by appointment)At Tapia ParkWHERE: Mountains Restoration Trust, Headwaters Corner Masson House23075 Mulholland Highway, Calabasas, CA 91302Note: located near Old Topanga Canyon RoadTapia Park884 N. Las Virgenese Rd., Calabasas, CA 91302WHY: A dog can be taught to avoid rattlesnakes and the dogs avoidance behavior may alert the owner to the dangers as well. Domestic dogs do not know the danger of poisonous snakes. 70-80% of bites occur on a dogs face and head, which means that the dog was curious about the snake. 15,000 dogs may be bitten by poisonous snakes every year. Mr. Callaghan is a highly respected professional dog-trainer with over 40 years experience, including family dog obedience, hunting dogs, problem solving, and narcotic detector dog training. He developed his successful rattlesnake avoidance method in 1982 and has since become well-known in this field. He is a popular guest speaker throughout the United States and Canada. The Mountains Restoration Trust is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit land trust dedicated to preserving, protecting and restoring the natural resources

let's take a closer sniff at the details??.

Everyone knows that the "dog days of summer" occur during the hottest and muggiest part of the season. Webster describes "dog days"
1 : the period between early July and early September when the hot sultry weather of summer usually occurs in the northern hemisphere
2 : a period of stagnation or inactivity

We look at Cardiff's Dog Days of Summer as a day filled with a feel-good "holiday spirit," drawing families (children & dogs) which is now an annual outing where the community will get pleasure from Dog Contests & the Canine Festival.

It is a day out on the square and fun for everyone with the contest and Canine festival. With entertainment for pets & people who love them: Contest, enjoying entertainment, browsing the vendor booths & of course it is as much about seeing other dogs as it is about the festivities. You will meet other dog lovers and reunite with friends.

Although Dog Days provide entertainment for people of all ages, the festival is truly all about dogs. So with a wag of the tail and a big sloppy lick, let's take a closer sniff at how you can participate.

You are invited to be part of this incredible event and be recognized as a sponsor. www.CardiffDogDaysOfSummer.com

Comments:Our July PotLuck and Meetup and Microchipping Event is open to all toy dog fanciers, and thier pups! Its a great opportunity to socialize your pups, meet new friends and old, and enjoy a great potluck buffet! And, if you choose, you can also have your dog microchipped! (there is a $30.00 fee for this service)
We know it has been very hot, so we are bringing a misting system to help human and pups alike. These systems have been known to cool an area as much as 10 degrees! As well, there are multiple large shade trees.
Please be aware that some people have food allergies so if you choose to bring a dish, if the food is spicy , or high in sugar , let people know by labeling it clearly. You are not required to bring anything at all, only if you want to :)
We will have a seperate table set up for the treats for the dogs, if you wish to bring some treats too/instead.
Our Vet Dr. Jacoby and his family has been invited to attend the Pot Luck, as he will be injecting our pups with the micro chips and numbing agent if you wanted it.
Those of you looking for a vet can do a mini meet and greet to see if he is the vet for you. Please do not talk shop, or ask for free vet advice, as he is off work and will want to enjoy the Pot Luck as much as we do.
Thanks all!!

Please be aware that some people have food allergies so if you choose to bring a dish, if the food is spicy , or high in sugar , let people know by labeling it clearly. You are not required to bring anything at all, only if you want to :)
We will have a seperate table set up for the treats for the dogs, if you wish to bring some treats too/instead.
Our Vet Dr. Jacoby and his family has been invited to attend the Pot Luck, as he will be injecting our pups with the micro chips and numbing agent if you wanted it.
Those of you looking for a vet can do a mini meet and greet to see if he is the vet for you. Please do not talk shop, or ask for free vet advice, as he is off work and will want to enjoy the Pot Luck as much as we do.
Thanks all!!

Comments:K-9 RATTLESNAKE AVOIDANCE TRAININGProtect your dog from deadly rattlesnakes! K-9 Rattlesnake Avoidance Training Clinic - Dixon May Fair Grounds, Dixon, CA on July 10th & 11th, 2010. All dogs - all breeds - are welcome!Do you hunt with your dog? Do you hike with your dog? Does your dog work on the farm? What if your dog comes across a rattlesnake? Will they know to leave it alone or will they want to play with it? This training is just for you and your dog!Dogs are naturally curious, and snakes often prove to be too much of a temptation to avoid. The unique movement and sound of rattlesnakes paired with the devastating effects of their venom poses a serious threat to inquisitive dogs. Rattlesnakes can be found almost anywhere and their bites are quite common, dangerous and usually very expensive to treat. Each dog is individually and personally trained by Erick Briggs of Natural Solutions. Training is a safe, humane, and proven method to teach your dog to avoid rattlesnakes, lowering their probability of being bitten. Erick teaches dogs to recognize the smell, sound and sight of a rattlesnake. Training takes about a 1/2 hour from check in to completion of training for 1 dog, just over 30 minutes for 2 dogs. Cost is $70 per dog.For registration form or more information, please go to: www.ncama.org Appointments times fill up quickly, so reserve your spot now!

We're not willing to stop there though, so please come and bring a friend - and help support our efforts...and make some new friends in the process.

Comments:$25 tickets get you a burlesque show, belly dancers, comedy from the Big Dog himself - Bill Farmer - voice of Disney's Goofy, food, and tons of cool people.

Ten volunteers from California will travel to Romania in May of 2006 to bring awareness to the stray dog problem that has persevered despite numerous attempts to wipe out the homeless dog population. A documentary film will follow the story of the volunteers as they rescue a select number of puppies and bring them home to the United States where they will be adopted into loving homes.

Through the medium of film and television we hope to educate and bring awareness to the world of a predicament that has grown out of proportion. The high-definition documentary not only portrays the journey of the puppies, but also the volunteers as they enter the streets of an industrial town in one of Europe?s poorest countries. Schnuffie Productions is working together with Nancy Janes of Romania Animal Rescue to maximize the results of this once-in-a-lifetime expedition.

Comments:The March Begins!The story of 2 Million Dogs began with a man and his two dogs who embarked on a walk from Austin, TX to Boston, MA inspired by the loss of his Great Pyrenees to cancer. Some of you have heard the story of Hudson, Murphy, and Luke Robinson.They walked from town to town sharing Malcolm?s story and educating people about cancer in dogs and as they built a nationwide grassroots movement, Mr. Robinson had a vision: 2,000,000 dogs walking simultaneously all across the United States for cancer. If 2 dogs could walk over 2,000 miles surely it was possible! And that?s how the 2 Million Dogs Foundation was born and the legacy that started out with just a man who lost his beloved dog continues... November 3rd, 2013 The 2 Million Dog March Continues! Join us this year in beautiful Central Park, adjacent to the wonderful Kathy May's Resturant for fun, games, prizes and walk to support canine cancer research and comparitive oncology research.

Comments:Did you know that black cats are the ones most likely to be passed over for adoption? Black cats are also the most likely to be euthanized at kill shelters, and the least likely to be rescued. Kitten Rescue thinks this is unfair! We rescue lots and lots of black cats, and they are just as lovely and deserving of a home as any other cat. Many of our cats are dog-friendly, too!
Kitten Rescue will be hosting two, yes two!, black cat only adoption events on Saturday, September 8th from 12 noon to 3:30 p.m. at:
West Los Angeles Centinela Feed & Pet Supplies
11055 Pico Blvd.
Encino Petco

Please come see a wonderful assortment of black cats and kittens that we have up for adoption. There will be big cats, little cats, old cats and young cats, boy cats, girl cats, lap cats, play cats, love cats, chatty cats and ... well, you get the picture.
Our black cats thank you and look forward to seeing you there!

Comments:Good Morning! We would like to invite you and your dog to a book launch party for the new children's book Alfie's Bark Mitzvah by Malibu author Shari Cohen.


Ms. Cohen will be autographing books at the Malibu Jewish Center & Synagogue (24855 Pacific Coast Hwy, Malibu, CA 90265) on Sunday, June 3rd from 12 noon to 2:00 pm. Internationally acclaimed Cantor Marceli Gindlin, who also resides in Malibu and wrote and performed a collection of children's songs to accompany the book, will also be in attendance. Dogs are welcome during the signing and will even get a kosher biscuit to take home.




Written with humor and light spirit, while embracing Jewish tradition and song, Alfie is the story of a young beagle who is passing from puppyhood to adulthood and, in honor of this most important occasion, Alfie gets to celebrate his Bark Mitzvah with all of his family and friends. Alfie's Bark Mitzvah has been endorsed by several members of the Orthodox Jewish community. The book is beautifully illustrated by Nadia Komorova and, as a bonus, includes a CD of children's songs created especially for the book Cantor Gindlin.


For more information about Alfie's Bark Mitzvah, please visit www.AlfiesBarkMitzvah.com. We hope you will be able to attend the event and would be happy to get you any additional information you might need.

Please let me know if you need any additional information or if you would like to speak with Ms. Cohen. Thank you for your consideration.

Comments:MISSIONThe mission of SUP for a Pup is to raise money for the local charitable organization, A Wish for Animals (AWFA), and to find homes for dogs in need, while offering great deals on sunglasses, footwear, gear and apparel.BACKGROUNDSUP for a Pup was started in 2009 by Kaenon Polarized Sports Marketing Director, Chris Wyman, an active dog and animal advocate. With help from his friends at Kaenon Polarized and others in the Stand Up Paddle and surf industries, Wyman's vision of a dog charity event in tune with the local surf culture came to life. For the last few years, Chris and his wife Lisa have been involved in fostering homeless dogs through AWFA, which led to their belief that more could still be done to raise money and awareness for the non-profit foundation. The recent economic downturn put added pressure on local shelters and charities, as the need to find homes for the growing population of disregarded and homeless dogs increased exponentially. In 2009, Kaenon Polarized and its partners kicked off the inaugural SUP for a Pup fundraiser. Those who attended the event were hosted to prize giveaways, great deals on Kaenon sunglasses, surf apparel, accessories and gear, not to mention introductions to loving dogs looking for their forever homes. The event was a huge success, raising over $7000 for AWFA, but more importantly it joined 20 dogs with new permanent loving families. (view photos from past events here)We are looking forward to the 2011 SUP for a Pup bringing even more abundance to our four-legged friends in need. ABOUT A WISH FOR ANIMALSAWFA rescues dogs in need. From the streets to high-kill shelters, AWFA provides temporary housing, food, medical treatment when needed and lots of love until they find their forever home.

This event gives pets a chance to run, play and swim in the park?s lagoon after it has closed down for the summer. It is good exercise for the animals, and an opportunity for both pets and their owners to socialize. In addition to the ?free-swim? for dogs, Regional Parks also incorporates contests and pet education into the program, including pet adoption opportunities.

Encouraging and supporting healthy outdoor activities for the pets in our community is extremely important to the Regional Parks Department. Events such as this do not succeed without the support of sponsors like you. Please join me in supporting Regional Parks by becoming a sponsor of this important event.

Your support in the form of a sponsorship and/or donations for opportunity drawings or goodie bags would help guarantee the success of this event and would be greatly appreciated. Friends of Regional Parks (F.O.R. Parks) is partnering with us to offer you the opportunity to make sponsorship and/or donation tax exempt. They are our non-profit 501(c) (3) tax-exempt organization.

Comments:Want your dog to be a Canine Good Citizen? Come to RDOG's Clinic to learn how. Then come take The American Kennel Club's Canine Good Citizen (CGC) test. The Canine Good Citizen Program is an excellent way to ensure that our favorite companion the dog, can be a respected member of the community.


Why should your dog have a CGC certificate? Upon passing the CGC test, you may order a certificate showing your successful completion of the CGC program. By having the certificate, many hotels, and restaurants, will allow your dog to stay or visit their establishments that they would otherwise not allow.


You may also order dog tags, bandanas, and patches to let people know your pooch is a Canine Good Citizen!


While many organizations sponsor CGC tests, RDOG offers a CGC clinic to help you and your dog get ready for the test. We will have two instructors for more individualized instruction. Attendance at both the clinic and the test is not required, however RDOG encourages all to enter both.


It's a fun time with your dog.

Comments:San Francisco, CA - D5DOG?s (District 5 Dog Owners and Guardians Group) 3rd Annual Great Dogs in the Park Festival and Canine Good Citizen Test Day is on Saturday, August 6th from 10am-3pm in Alamo Square Park. The event focuses on local dog groups, dog advocacy, education, and features products by local small businesses and artists that feature or cater to dogs.

Dog owner/guardians can enter their dogs to be certified by the American Kennel Club as Canine Good Citizens at the event. CGC Tests cost $20/dog to enter and will be administered by an official American Kennel Club (AKC) evaluator, Beverly Ulbrich.

D5DOG is the San Francisco District 5 Dog Owners & Guardians group. We are a neighborhood organization of dog guardians and dog lovers who care deeply about the health and welfare of our canine companions as well as the safety and vitality of our local parks, neighborhoods and community. D5DOG members organize regular monthly clean-ups in parks within District 5. We also host seminars on canine health & welfare, dog training classes and other fun and informative events that promote responsible dog guardianship.

Started in 1989, the American Kennel Club?s Canine Good Citizen is a certification program that is designed to reward dogs that have good manners at home and within the community. The Canine Good Citizen Program is a two-part program that stresses responsible pet owner/guardianship for handlers and basic good manners for dogs. All dogs that pass the 10-step CGC test may receive a certificate from the American Kennel Club. In a little over one decade, the Canine Good Citizen Program has begun to have an extremely positive impact in many of our communities. This is a program that can help us assure that the dogs we love will always be welcomed and well-respected members of our communities.

French Festival Poodle Parade
Sunday, July 13, 2008, 5:30pm
Bastille Day is coming soon, and that means it's again time for the Santa Barbara French Festival and the famous Poodle Parade (Sunday at 5:30 p.m.). All kinds of poodles participate each year: we've seen pedigree world champions (a.k.a. "canine topiary") to shaggy cockapoos. Sometimes Mademoiselle Pseudo-Poodle shows up (she's a great dane with big crÍpe paper puffs).

Dogs and their owners may participate in the parade at no charge, and participants receive a certificate suitable for framing. This event is just for fun, so no prizes will be awarded. Costumed and decorated poodles are especially welcome.
Mayor Marty Blum, Santa Barbara's Madame Mayor, leads off the Poodle Parade, a local tradition.
Sign up for the Poodle Parade any time in advance at the Festival. All well-behaved, licensed, vaccinated poodles are welcome. This is one of the Festival's most popular events. The public loves you! Be sure to invite your friends and bring your camera.
The French Festival features great food (from crepes to Cajun), and over 40 acts on 3 stages (from cancan to cabaret). Oo la la!

If you hear excess barking at the Topanga Canyon Gallery, perhaps a visit to the July art show is the answer! "Why Animals?" is a group show of animals and their artists. This unique group of 30+ artists shares their passion for animals through a wide variety of mediums. The show features work from gallery members as well as guest artists from around the country. Art prodige' Jared Seff from Florida is our youngest artist at age 16. Eric Ginsburg's work travels all around Europe. Local pet portrait artists Robyn Feeley and Debbi Green have spent many hours coordinating this fun event including a silent auction wall featuring Pot Belly Pig Artwork donated by each artist in the show. Proceeds from the auction will benefit Rescue Me Inc, a non-profit animal rescue that specializes (but not limited too) special needs dogs. It is our hope that this show will help raise animal awareness as well as raise the necessary funds needed to house and feed our abandoned animals.


Topanga Canyon Gallery is pleased to open this eclectic show on Tuesday July 3rd 2007.
