But we will be offering more in the months to come! The Reading with Rover room is located at the Redmond Town Center mall, upstairs next to Seattle Sun Tan.
- Attend the Healthy Paws Seminar!
It's pretty critical that all dogs have healthy toe nails and nicely trimmed ones as well! But this can be a "pain" for all involved! This seminar gets "Rave Reviews" from so many people. If you have a dog and you are failing to trim his/her nails, this can be a huge help to both of you. You will learn how to humanely trim or drummel their nails with as little pain as possible and maybe not painful at all! Please see the details at http://www.puppymanners.com group page and as always our meetup members get $20.00 of any seminar or classes. Cost of this seminar is $60.00 Please pre-register at the Puppy Manners site. You must register at www.puppymanners.com to attend. Payment may be made through Puppy Manners. Email [masked] if you have any questions.
