We are a fun group that believes in enjoying our dogs in a very balanced way. We want to spread the message that social events can be fun and very manageable with your dog without abusive training methods like choke, prong and electronic training collars that are becoming increasingly promoted at RVA gatherings. Our dogs are our mirrors to all the goodness inside of us! We are as imperfect as our dogs in our habits and behaviors, but by treating our dogs with kindness, patience and compassion, we do ourselves justice.
Please have respect for the Organizer and all members of the group by RSVPing to events in a timely manner and making any last-minute changes known. This group has a past history of too many "no-shows," so we now have a "3 strikes" rule - no show 3 times and you will be removed from the group.
