Raising a dog in the city brings joy and challenges galore! How can we ensure their wellbeing while maintaining good relationships with the outside world?
Join us for a discussion on what it means to be a responsible dog owner both during and after Covid-19. Our panelists will share their perspectives on good behaviors on the street, in off-leash areas, inside the dog runs (whenever they reopen), and even inside your building.
Learn about ways to advocate for your pup and for others in a difficult situation, as well as how to prevent a challenging situation from happening in the first place.
