A huge thanks to Kayte for posting this video. What's that Saint Bernard mix saying?? What could have been done differently? ... See MoreSee Less

Good Day NY has literally gone to the dogs!! It seems Greg had quite a bond with Titus, the Saint Bernard. But it is live TV, so things don’t always go as planned... You’ll definitely want to watch this for a good laugh.

Vancouver area dog owners- as many of you know, I worked with Dr David Lane of Points East West Veterinary Services for years and assisted him on his research last spring. He is looking for healthy (not limping) canine participants for a 1 time filming for gait analysis on Monday, May 25th. You will walk and jog with your dog on leash and that's it!

Who: Dogs of any shape or size that are NOT lame (no limping, hopping, etc)
When: Monday, May 25th in the afternoon
Where: Vancouver Animal Wellness Hospital - 105 E Broadway, Vancouver, BC

I enjoy Sarah’s classes because she takes her time with each dog, has a great schedule that works for everyone and she gives each of us specific home work after every class! Sarah’s classes are very relaxed, my self and my dog enjoy them very much. The support group is wonderful and I feel at ease when I come to class! Best part of coming to class is to see all the great people and all the support everyone has to offer!

Both Kevin and I wanted to thank you for coming out to work with us and putting together a plan for Jake so we were able to help him figure out that the car isn’t a scary place.  So thank you once again!
