Certified dog trainer to address most common behavioural problems for dog guardians, shelter workers & animal rescue professionals

VANCOUVER, BC – May 8, 2014 – Paws for Hope Animal Foundation, a Vancouver-based charity committed to more sustainable companion animal protection in B.C., today announced the second event in its annual “Speaker Series” following on the heels of its successful “Compassion Fatigue Seminar” back in February. This time, Certified Professional Dog Trainer, Shelagh Begg, will review and address the most common canine behavioural problems in hopes of helping keep more dogs at home and out of B.C.’s overcrowded shelters.

“Unwanted behaviour is one of the top reasons dogs are surrendered to shelters, behaviour that often can be easily corrected with the appropriate information and guidance,” said Kathy Powelson, Executive Director of Paws for Hope. “In our quest to build more sustainable companion animal care and protection in the Province and keep as many dogs and their guardians together, we believe it’s important to offer the public and existing animal care workers an affordable course covering the tips and tools they need to understand and help as many dogs as possible.”

The workshop is open to any interested person or team and will be held:

DATE: Sunday, July 6, 2014
TIME: 1pm to 3pm
LOCATION: Dizine Canine Training Centre, 1730 Vernon Drive, Vancouver
TICKETS: $30 each

Kathy Powelson, Executive Director
