Special Events

Whether your dog is a canine sports athlete, a committed backyard ball-chaser, or an aging couch potato, he or she might experience an orthopedic injury or discomfort. How can you help your dog avoid injury, or recover from one, for long-term health and vitality? Learn the basics of canine conditioning and fitness to prevent problems, as well as what to do if your best friend experiences pain or injury.

In this half-day workshop, you will learn:

  • Conditioning and fitness for long-term health and vitality – whether for sports competition or backyard fun
  • Common canine injuries and how to prevent them
  • How to identify early warning signs of pain and injury, and what to do when you recognize those signs
  • What rehabilitation therapy is and how it can help your dog


Kathy Topham, DVM, CCRT, VSMT, CMAV is a veterinarian who specializes in canine sports medicine and rehabilitation. Join Dr. Topham for this valuable workshop to ensure your best friend lives a healthy, pain-free active life.

Picture Your Dog with Santa

December 4, 2016

Sixty-nine families came out for our 5th Annual Picture Your Dog with Santa event to enjoy some fun with their dogs and support the Geauga County Dog Shelter. We shattered past fundraising amounts, gathering $1000 for the shelter this year! Plus, so many brought blankets, towels, food, treats, toys, medications, and more. Thank you all for such generous support for the good folks who do great work at the shelter! Click on the photo below to view the entire album on our Facebook page.
