Is your dog a good neighbour?

Good NeighbourCarriage Crossing Animal Hospital will be offering lessons to prepare for upcoming Canine Good Neighbour Program Certification at the KW Pet Expo on May 7th and 8th.

These lessons will be held every second Saturday, beginning January 23rd, at 9am. Our popular Certified Dog Behaviour Therapist Amanda Rich will be teaching the lessons. The cost is $30 for each one hour lesson and eight lessons will be offered although attendance. Spaces will be limited so sign up now!

Requirements are as follows:

• Current vaccination rabies, bordetella (kennel cough), and distemper, adenovirus and parvovirus

• A leash not less than .75 meters (2 Feet) nor longer than 2 meters (6 Feet) in length
