Bark Busters Supports Responsible Dog Ownership in Conjunction with AKC's Responsible Dog Ownership Day by Offering Free Dog Safety Workshops

The number one cause of death for dogs isn't trauma or disease, it's euthanasia due to behavior problems. Five million dogs will be euthanized this year. It's time for everyone to "bone up" on responsible dog ownership.

Each year the AKC® hosts Responsible Dog Ownership Day events during September to educate the dog-loving public about the importance of being a responsible owner. More than 500 AKC-affiliated clubs and other organizations around the country participate by holding events in their local communities. To find events in your area, visit the AKC Responsible Dog Ownership Day event webpage at and search events in your state

In support of the AKC and to promote responsible dog ownership, Bark Busters is offering free dog safety workshops for any community-based organization, subject to availability. Hosted by Bark Busters' dog behavioral therapists, these free community workshops will give participants dog safety tips while helping them understand how to communicate more effectively with dogs by using voice control and body language. During the workshop, participants will learn how to recognize the signs of fear and aggression by reading a dog's body language. In addition, the hour-long workshops will include important dog safety guidelines. Workshop participants will also receive a free "Pets Inside" safety window decal. The "Pets Inside" decal asks emergency personnel to "Please save our pets," and it features space to indicate the number of dogs, cats, birds and other pets that live inside the home.

Organizations interested in scheduling a free workshop are invited to e-mail and include the name of organization, ZIP code of organization, and a contact name and phone number.

As the world's largest dog training company, all of us at Bark Busters are committed to helping people better understand how dogs think, act and communicate. Come. Sit. Stay and learn what it takes to be a responsible dog owner. Your best friend is counting on you.
