On Saturday 18 July, Success Public Library had the privilege of having Dog Whisperer, behavior consultant and professional dog trainer Kathy Kopellis Mcleod come along to speak to members of the community. Kathy was able to share her knowledge and expertise on a range of topics in regards to the wonderful world of dogs. She touched on various topics including inappropriate barking, nipping, separation anxiety, behavioral problems and social interaction with other dogs. Approximately 80 people attended the event and those who attended had the ability to ask questions directly to Kathy about problems they are experiencing with their little furry friends.
