This Sunday, February 19, 2012 from 6-7:30 pm, join the P.U.P. (Prepare Ur Pet) at BlueCollar Working Dog in Echo Park for a FREE emergency preparedness class! They are, after all, our best friends, and we wouldn’t want to leave our babies behind in an emergency because we weren’t prepared.

Animal trainer and behavior specialists will be doing live demonstrations on how to handle your pet before and after a disaster, including calming your pet during stressful circumstances, what to pack in an emergency kit, as well as how to collar, harness, or leash your pets for an emergency evacuation.

RSVP is a must – simply email prepareurpet@gmail.com.
