On Saturday, January 3 at 7:30pm, local author Margie Cantwell will be speaking on Good Puppy Academics at Songbird Community Healing Center, 8297 Old Redwood Highway in Cotati.

“Since many people get untrained pets for Christmas, we thought it was the ideal time to expand the scope of our offerings with a talk focused on this topic,” says director Jasmine Gold. “The holidays can be stressful. Here’s something positive you can attend to help you relax and reduce the post-holiday stress.” Since Good Puppy Academics incorporates the science of the mind and canine psychology to achieve a balance that enhances the human/canine partnership, it fits right in with Songbird’s focus on promoting community, learning and growth for everyone.  

Author Margie Cantwell enjoys “teaching people how to live more balanced lives with their pets, because … dogs are meant to be in our lives as stress reducers, not stress producers.” Margie specializes in service dog public access behaviors and task training, as well as early puppy skill development. Her book was written for people who feel overwhelmed, confused or simply “turned off” by all the conflicting dog training methods available to us today

 Good Puppy Academics is the first of Songbird’s weekly Friday Flock Nights to focus on pets. Songbird Friday Flock Nights are offered at a suggested donation of $1 to $30 so that everyone can attend. Birds of a Feather Flock Together!   For further information, contact Jasmine Gold, Director at info@songbirdcenter.org, www.songbirdcenter.org, (707) 795-2398
