I am very interested in registering for your dog enrichment information session on Dec. 1st. However, because I'm a college student, I will be leaving for winter break and I will come back on Jan. 17th. Do you still recommend me attending this session or should I wait for a session in January? Will you have any that month?
I hope to hear from you soon!

My daughter, who is turning 13 Friday, wants to get trained to be a volunteer as her birthday wish. She'd like to do this with me, her dad, a family friend, and her brother (who is 15). Can you get us scheduled for a training session this weekend? thank you! Leela Fireside
