Parade dogs

Responsible dog ownership means getting to know your dogs likes and dislikes. SLODOG strives to educate the public as to the proper care and training of dogs as pets, companions and working members of the community. We participate in public events that demonstrate the many benefits of training. We believe well trained dogs have more fun.

The dogs that participated in the parade with SLODOG were carefully selected based on their perceived ability to handle such a situation. These included two therapy dogs; five dogs that compete in canine events such as agility, obedience, rally, scent work and herding; and one dog who enjoys being with his owner in her noisy work environment. We invest time, energy and training to ensure our dogs are ready and willing to participate in events. I encourage anyone interested in enhancing the canine/human bond to contact us at http://slodog.com.
