Feeding the mind at mealtime – and more! A canine enrichment seminar
Friday, August 9, 6:15 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.
TCOTC Star Room
This seminar will focus on canine enrichment using our dogs’ meals. We will discuss appropriate enrichment for different types of dogs and will cover both DIY and store-bought enrichment options with varying levels of difficulty. Content is appropriate for dogs of all ages, from puppy to senior dogs!
This is a lecture-style seminar with several demonstrations. Ten demo dogs are needed. Demo dogs must be comfortable in a crate, comfortable around dogs and people, and the dogs should be able to eat most proteins. If you are interested to have your dog be a demo dog, please email Saige Bell at firstname.lastname@example.org.
How to Register: Register online in advance or at the door. Demo dogs must register in advance.
Why is enrichment important?
Enrichment allows each dog to use its brain in an appropriate way, instead of engaging in inappropriate behavior such as being destructive or eating inappropriate things. Enrichment allows us to tire out our dogs without large amount of physical activity, which is beneficial on very hot or very cold days when it may not be safe to exercise our dogs physically. Enrichment is especially good for senior dogs or other dogs with limited mobility. Plus, it is just a ton of fun!
