SIT MEANS SIT HOSTS FREE DOG PARK ETIQUETTE DEMONSTRATIONS ON BEHALF OF CLARK COUNTY

Las Vegas, Nev. – Sit Means Sit, the largest U.S-based dog training company, is hosting a series of free demonstrations on dog park etiquette for the public on behalf of Clark County Parks and Recreation at Dog Fancier’s Park located at 5800 E. Flamingo. The demonstrations will be held the second Wednesday of the month from 4 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. on March 10, April 14, May 12, June 9 and July 14, 2010.

“We believe in a happy dog under control,” said Alfredo Rivera, co-owner of Sit Means Sit. “We are working with the public to create a positive and safe atmosphere at Dog Fancier’s Park. In addition, the County has just begun a fantastic new Ambassador Program at Dog Fancier’s, which is a collaboration of volunteers who patrol the park and encourage user etiquette. We train the Ambassadors as well.”

Does your dog:

  • Accept a friendly stranger socializing with you?
  • Sit politely for petting by a friendly stranger?

  • Come when called, even when distracted?
