An evening seminar with Paws for Progress
Date (PASSED): Thursday 9th July 2015
Time: 7pm -10pm
Seminar schedule available here: PFP Evening Seminar Schedule 9th July
We would like to say a HUGE thank you to all who attended our seminar on the 9th July and helped make the event such a success.
The seminar featured a series of talks from Paws for Progress staff and directors. Rebecca Leonardi discussed the benefits of Paws for Progress for our canine companions and Tracey McLennan explained the TellingtonT-touch approach and how this fits in with the project at HM YOI Polmont. Gwen Matear discussed the behavioural impact of positive reinforcement training on the Paws for Progress students, and Rhona Meikle shared her experiences training and working with Police dogs.
Our thanks again to all those who donated prizes for the raffle – all very much appreciated. Together with the merchandise sales (including the fab Paws bandanna, modelled at the seminar by Paws Ambassadors Mojo and Bonnie) and ticket sales, we raised over £500, which is a fantastic contribution towards our services for people and dogs who most need our support.
This is the first in a series of Paws for Progress seminars that we are planning; we look forward to welcoming our supporters to many more successful events in the future.

Paws for Progress is a registered Community Interest Company and all proceeds raised through our seminars will contribute towards our intervention programmes for people and dogs who most need our support.
