Barktoberfest Costume Contest Winners!

We had a great time at Barktoberfest this year. Even though the weather was a bit wet we had a great turnout. It was hard to decide which costumes were the best but here they are.

The little Sailor Boy won first place, Woof in Sheep Clothing won second place, Hershey’s Kiss won third place, and Lizard won fourth place. There were some other great costumes and we’ll post them in a later posting. Congratulations winners!

Agility is for Everyone!

Marcia Cook and her dog Lucy

Marcia Cook and her dog Lucy

We have so much fun in Agility. This is a fun class that is designed to create a closer bond with you and your dog and, like Marcia Cooks says in her video, she wanted her rescue dog to “gain confidence.”

There are no barrier restrictions on dogs and dog sizes and there is no barrier restriction with a person’s activity level or age. This is an interactive dog and handler “team” class. It is meant for big dogs and little dogs. It is meant for all people, young and even older. Some people have had so much fun they have taken the class more than once!

Do you want to have a closer bond with your dog? Do you want to have fun? Join our next Agility class by contacting us at At Home Veterinary Care. You can go on-line and pre-register at athomevet.care or give us a call at 850-274-5710.​
