Comments:Dog Park Etiquette and Safety: What would you do?
Local animal behaviorist hosts free seminar for pet owners to learn proper dog park etiquette and how to handle difficult encounters with aggressive dogs.
What / Why: Off-leash dog parks are popular among Colorado residents during the summer months. However, many pet owners are hesitant to take their dogs to off-leash parks due to possible encounters with aggressive dogs as other dog-owners try to ?socialize? their dogs.
Kari Bastyr, MS,CDBC, animal behaviorist and owner of Wag & Train Animal Behavior Specialists, is hosting her first free monthly seminar to discuss dog park etiquette and safety to help dog owners identify the differences between aggressive behavior, rough play, and appropriate play. The seminar will also teach attendees how to handle difficult encounters with aggressive dogs and what to do if they or their pets are involved in an attack by an aggressive dog at an off-leash dog park.
When: July 19, 7 p.m. ? 8:30 p.m.
Admission is free and beverages will be served. Pet owners are asked not to bring their dogs to the seminar.

Comments:"The purpose is to promote international friendship and peace through kiting and other activities in which the wind serves as a universal symbol of one planet and mankind's symbiotic relationship to nature."
The event has 3 Villages: The Pet Village, The Kite Village and The Conservation Village. The Pet Village starts the day with a Pet Parade. The parade will lead into the Pet Village where a number of pet vendors will be available with some valuable pet information. Examples include pet massage & acupuncture, pet training, healthy pet food, adoptions, etc.
As a volunteer, My main focus is the Pet Village and is why I'm writing to dogfriendly.com. We feel that pets are a very important part of our lives. Research shows that violence is less prominent in people that learn to care for other living creatures. We also want to educate people in loving their pets through training and discipline rather than violence and negative reinforcement.

Comments:Poo Free Parks needs your support. The contract signed with the City & County of Denver to execute this program is currently in jeopardy. While there is overwhelming public support for the Poo Free Parks project, the Parks and Recreation Advisory Board will be reviewing the program during the next board meeting on Aug. 13 at 6pm at the Newton Senior Center, 4430 Navajo St. in Denver. Poo Free Parks is an environmentally-friendly, community based program that will help eliminate dog waste in our City parks at no cost to taxpayers. Our dog waste dispensers are made from 100% recyclable aluminum and the bags are 100% bio-degradable, specifically designed to biodegrade within 18 months. The program, scheduled to begin this summer in over a dozen parks, is estimated to save the City $100,000 each year, while disposing of pet waste properly, reducing the amount of harmful plastics and preserving one of Denver's greatest attributes. You can help make a wonderful difference by showing your support! For more information, please visit http://www.poofreeparks.com/
