Two Events in Two Days

It's been a couple of busy days here at GDB! Volunteers and staff have been getting the word out about our programs, raising awareness and making new friends. First, we had another event in our popular "Dine Out for Dogs" series. The Melting Pot in Larkspur, Calif., donated a portion of the evening's proceeds to GDB - it was a super cheesy and delicious way for folks to come out for a great meal, and show their support at the same time. Above, the restaurant’s staff pose with a couple of GDB puppies in training.

The event was designed to educate the public about GDB by providing training demonstrations and information to guests. Attendees mingled with GDB alumni and puppy raisers, met oodles of dogs and pups, all while enjoying delicious fare provided by Epic Roasthouse. Stellar weather and sweeping views of the Bay Bridge made for quite a fun party!

  1. We had a great time at the Em-Bark-Adero event! Bamboo got to see one of her trainers and went absolutely wild when Todd (her first trainer) was doing the clicker demo. The Bam loves her Todd time! She kept doing her "John Wayne" army crawl to try to get in on the clicker "game". Todd told me afterwards he thought she wanted to come back for a refresher course... Ha, he should be so lucky to get to work my dog again. :) Seriously, Todd taught her the skills needed to guide and she loves to work; I feel certain that she will always go wild for him. Thanks Todd, love my dog!!!

    P.S. She was out of harness, so she wasn't actually breaking any rules of proper guide behavior!!!
