United Pet Fund Garage Sale

I remember so well that day when United Pet Fund held its grand opening of its then new United Pet Fund, which supports Cincinnati dog rescues and adoption agencies, is holding a fundraiser.8,500 sq ft Blue Ash Resource Center. In a warehouse building that would come to be stocked with pet food and supplies, dozens of people who shared a common interest in the welfare of animals were standing. All eyes were on a man and his dog, and the connection that spoke to the hearts of everyone in that room.

Dr. Zekoff, a Blue Ash veterinarian, founded United Pet Fund to support the work of dozens of local animal care and service organizations including dog and cat shelters and rescues without the resources to maintain their very important, difficult, and often emotional work of saving lives.

Next weekend, you are invited to attend UPF’s Garage Sale with tons of household items, sports equipment, toys, pet supplies and more…all to benefit UPF’s work – and ultimately over 85 regional animal shelters, rescues and advocacy groups. Below are more details.

Cincinnati Has New Dog Super Heroes

Children in Cincinnati learned how to be good dog friends and dog trainers and dog trainer, Lisa Desatnik's My Dog Super Hero kids class in Blue Ash

These young children learned important lessons about dog body language, how to play safely with their dog, and how to be a positive dog trainer at my most recent My Dog’s Super Hero class at the United Pet Fund in Blue Ash. They did a fantastic job – so did my demonstration dogs, Daisy and Bunny. Teaching kids and parents these classes is about strengthening relationships and preventing dog bites.

Teach Your Child – No Dog Headlocks

Parents, a reminder that dogs – like all animals – learn positive or negative associations based on past experience.

Please teach your kids that instead of giving head locks and big bear hugs that can make dogs uncomfortable, to be a dog Super Hero, they can sit next to their dog, give him a rub on his neck and give him a treat from their open palm.

I teach these lessons and more in my My Dog’s Super Hero Class, a unique one hour class for children ages 6 to 10 and a parent. It could be the most important hour you spend together to help your child have a long lasting positive friendship with your dog.

My next class is January 23 at United Pet Fund. Please click here for info & to register.

A parenting tip: teach your child that head locks and bear hugs can make your dog uncomfortable. Learn more about a Cincinnati dog training class for kids.
