Vet Demo - Dr. Dirk Dekens from Montgomery Village Vet 

A graduate of vet school in Ghent, Belgium, Dr. Dekens worked as an emergency veterinarian at the now closed Calgary Animal Emergency Clinic for about three years and an eight year full-on commitment as the first full time veterinarian hired by the Calgary Humane Society. Dr. Dekens also co-founded and owned Sit Happens! Companion Dog Training, a force-free and reward based dog training school in Calgary.  His interests in veterinary medicine revolve around animal welfare, ethical issues in veterinary medicine and the importance of the human animal bond. Dr. Dekens' greatest pleasure has been and continues to be the interactions with his clients and their nonhuman companions as he travels from home to home.

Clarice and Dave from West Side Pet Pros will be giving an awesome demo for us!  Whether you're going on vacation and need someone you can trust to check on your critters, have a puppy/senior who needs a mid-day potty break, or a high-energy hound that needs to go for a run, West Side Pet Pros can help!  They offer home visits for animals of all types, on and off-leash dog walks, and a variety of other services to make your life easier.

If walking your dog isn’t a walk in the park, join West Side Pet Pros for a discussion and demonstration of dog walking tips that will help you and your pup have a frustration-free experience! The focus is loose-leash walking, but touches on other common issues such as reactivity, prey drive, and eating things they shouldn’t. They will finish with an audience Q&A period to troubleshoot your specific situations!
