Canine Core at Planet Dog: New Session

Canine Core at Planet Dog: New Session

We filled up our first class at Planet Dog! For those on the waitlist, we just added another session which will run from June 5th through July 3rd, Tuesdays from 7-8pm.

Please bear with us while our store continues to evolve by moving to a 100% Fair Trade policy. If you would like to know why buying Fair Trade is so very important, please start with this website for more information: http://befair.org/. We finally...
