Thanks to all the kids at Fall Creek Elementary for attending our presentations for your annual “Mini Sessions” Day. Summit and Heather had a great time teaching everyone how to be safe around unfamiliar dogs and showing off some of his goofy tricks. Summit especially enjoyed the tennis balls at the bottoms of all the kid’s metal chairs. Between the 80 tennis balls and all the kids, I think he wanted to move in!
Heather and Summit travelled to Ladysmith to teach the DOG CARE merit badge. Summit was a great assistant to teach everything from First Aid to training to dog etiquette. Thanks to all the scouts who took part to earn their merit badge!

The second annual Tour d’Eau Claire ended up being a COLD day for bikers who were on a sprint through the city to complete all thier stops on this courier bike race. emBARK was a co-sponsor and official stop for the bikers. We welcomed them with hot chocolate, and bountiful amounts of dog slobber.
Maurices, ECCHA, and emBARK brought us this showcase of fashion and fido’s. A fundraiser for Eau Claire County Humane Association Models from Maurices, adoptable animals from ECCHA, cupcakes from Dessert First, and venue by emBARK made for a great evening!
Dogs and humans alike had a great time at the Chippewa Valley Great Outdoor Games on Saturday, August 15th at the Seymour Rod and Gun Club grounds. Bobbing for tennis balls, dock diving, digging for tennis balls, retrieve contests, radar runs by local law enforcement, herding demos, tracking demos, agility, flyball demos, and much more were available for dogs to try their luck!
We had a great time at the Eau Claire County Humane Association night at the Eau Claire Express baseball game at Carson Park. emBARK co-sponsored the night as we promoted the shelter. Heather’s dog, Summit got to bring out the official game balls as he ran into the field with his hiking pack full of game balls. It was a gorgeous night to support a local team, support our local shelter, and to watch baseball and drink some Budweiser! Thanks for all the fans that came out to cheer on the team!
Dyan and Heather travelled to Chicago on July 10-13 for an Ian Dunbar seminar. For those of you who are “in the know” of dog training, Dr. Dunbar is the founder of Sirius Dog Training, the world’s foremost expert in puppy training. Dr. Dunbar’s work has shaped how dog training is approached, and his knowledge is used all over the world. We picked up SO many ideas at this seminar. The topics covered included : Biting, Fighting and Aggression ; Constraints on Learning Theory ; and Applied Learning Theory. It was an amazing weekend and we are excited to add things into our classes. With some individual help from Dr. Dunbar, I am excited to add changes to our current Puppy Einstein class to make it even better. We are constantly evolving and learning so that we may bring you the most current information on dog training out there!
