Rockville, MD 20852
Dottie Fitzgerald of Fitzgerald Auto Malls will present “Your Dog’s Friend” (YDF) with special recognition and support for their extraordinary work with the humane training of dogs and their families. Their goal is to keep dogs from being turned in to shelters by educating and supporting them and their humans. They promote positive methods of training and behavior modification because they are effective, build trust and unlike harsher, compulsion methods, cannot cause pain.
Dottie has been a leader in raising awareness of animal issues as well as offering adoption events at Fitzgerald dealerships throughout the region.
The event will feature brief remarks by Dottie Fitzgerald, President of Fitzgerald Subaru. “I have always believed that education makes lives better – for ourselves, our children and yes our canine family members. Hannah, my German Shepherd and I have personally benefited from the training at Your Dog’s Friend in their reactive dog class. I believe that the traditional training we received elsewhere initially only exacerbated her reactivity. Thanks to YDF we can actually go for a walk now.”
Bodhi the Collie, a student of Your Dog’s Friend will assist in the acceptance of the recognition. Experts from YDF will be on hand to answer questions about their break through training that is known for being a great resource for new adopters. YDF is a 501c3 non-profit.
