9:30 AM | “Listen Like a Rockstar!" Demo

Ever feel frustrated with your dog’s listening skills?  Ever wonder why sometimes they listen so well and other times they just seem to ignore everything?  Do you feel like your dog is stubborn or defiant?   Or…. maybe they’re just normal!   Many common dog training practices teach your dog to tune you OUT, not in.  Come learn how to see your dog in a new light.  Join Yvette Van Veen of Awesome Dogs at 9:30am at the Main Stage to learn how to get your dog to listen like a rock star!
