Is Your Dog Prepared for an Emergency? Learn the Canine Heimlich Maneuver in Hollywood (Seriously)
The book on dog safety.
But are you ready for a ... doggy emergency? That's right Angelenos, get your priorities straight. Pets are people too. The Feb. 5 event at the Zoom Zoom Room (known for its all-important "doggy disco" classes) will explore the finer points of pooch safety.
And so next month "dog safety author" Melanie Monteiro will be teaching you how to keep Fido out of harm's way, including:
Basic First Aid Skills
How to Put Together a First Aid Kit
How to Prevent the Most Common Dog Accidents
Basic Rules of Preparedness
There's a canine Heimlich maneuver? Since when did dogs and people switch places? Weren't dogs supposed to come to our rescue with a barrel of liquor around the their necks?
The canine safety session happens from 3:30 to 6 p.m. Feb. 5 and unlike you're neighbor's pit bull it's not free. It'll cost ya $30. This free advertising? Priceless.
