*This event is postponed until further notice due to the current public health crisis.*

*While we love your dogs, please, no dogs at this event*

Diligence, Determination, and Compassion are virtues that Don O practices when he is training dogs. Don is an expert dog trainer!  Over the past 16 years, our dogs have benefited from Don’s expertise in training.  Miracles do happen… especially when Don O is involved. Don’s mantra which we repeat is, “BE CONSISTENT AND BE PATIENT!”

The three B’s… Behavior, Behavior, Behavior are the topics of this workshop.

Virgie Giles Foundation is pleased to host a Q&A featuring Don O. He will be at your service to answer all of YOUR questions regarding your four-legged best friends!
