The holiday season is full of fun and excitement for humans and their pets! From Halloween trick-or-treaters and presents under the tree to New Year’s fireworks, it can also be a time rich with behavior challenges and even danger for your dog. Identifying these potential behavior challenges and addressing them before they become an issue will enable you, and your pup, to have a happy and safe holiday season! Rover Oaks Pet Resort is presenting Holiday Prep: Teaching Good Dog Manners for the Festivities Ahead, an interactive workshop that addresses the most common behavior problems during the holidays as well as ways to ensure your pet’s safety from Halloween to New Year’s Eve!
The holidays are always a busy time for pet parents. Everyone is busy running from party to party and shopping from dawn to dusk, but it is important to make sure that your four-legged friends have all the necessary training tools to make that time safe and happy for them. Trick-or-treaters will be knocking on the door, family and friends coming to visit and there will be lots of tasty, potentially dangerous, temptations laying around. There is also the irresistable appeal of a nicely decorated tree, wrapped gifts and festive holiday decor that fill the house, all of which can look suspiciously like chew toys to your dog.
The good news is there’s help and hope for making this the best holiday season ever. The professional trainers at Rover Oaks Pet Resort have cooked up some simple ways to prevent a long list of problem behaviors. They will also show you 5 things you can teach your dog which will turn any canine maniac into a well-mannered member of the family. Now there’s a holiday present you can give yourself! Houston non-profit SNAP (Spay Neuter Assistance Program) will also be on hand to offer information on low-cost vaccination services should you need to take your pet to a lodging facility or along with you on a family trip during the busy time of year.
Join Michael Baugh, CPDT-KA for an evening of learning, live demonstrations and video examples, Thursday October 7th from 7 to 9 p.m. at Rover Oaks‘ Houston location, 2550 West Bellfort. Light snacks and refreshments will be served. Your $20 dollar donation benefits SNAP in their effort to provide additional free and low-cost services to the community.

SNAP, the recipient of the 2009 Pinnacle Award from the Better Business Bureau, is a 501(c)(3) organization that operates in Houston, and San Antonio, Texas, with a mission to prevent the suffering and death of cats and dogs due to overpopulation, especially in low-income areas. SNAP envisions a world without homeless dogs and cats. Both Houston and San Antonio have expressed the desire to become “no kill” cities in the near future. SNAP recognizes that sterilization programs, which by definition reduce the number of animals that could possibly be born, are essential to these communities’ reaching that desired status. SNAP will focus on helping these cities reach their goal by designing, delivering, promoting, and advancing community-based animal sterilization services.
