This Saturday, dog lovers alike will converge in Ensoburg Falls, VT for the first ever Vermont Dog Festival! Dubbed as a “fun, family friendly event that caters to our canine counterparts.”
Laurie Lawless of Dogs Rock! Vermont is excited to have been offered a spot to speak at the event. Laurie will have the opportunity to spend 15 minutes discussing positive reinforcement and relationship building in dog training with Emily Lewis of A Click Away Dog Training.
As a member of Vermont Professional Dog Trainers, a group made up of dedicated Vermont Professional Dog Trainers who strive to provide the most up-to-date scientific training methods to their clients and their pets, the sheltering and animal welfare community and service and working dog groups, Laurie is excited to present this topic to the dog-loving Vermont community.
The full day event will feature local rescue dogs, games, vendors and more! Please come find Laurie and her new pup Moose at the festival! She will be stationed at the Vermont Professional Dog Trainers booth.

Mark your calendars! On Wednesday, September 21 at 7 p.m. I will be giving a presentation at the Brownell Library in Essex Junction! As always, I am excited to give you a glimpse into my world and show you how to be safe with your dog and others.
“Nation-wide shelters and rescues are working towards the “no-kill” movement- a movement described by the No Kill Advocacy Center as, “an end to the killing of all non-irremediably suffering animals,” or animals in physical pain.
On the surface, “no-kill” sounds great, but animals have more than physical needs and as professionals we are beginning to see more dogs with behavior and aggression problems being placed into homes.
What does this mean for you? Understanding dog body language is absolutely key to keeping you and your family safe and out of harm’s way when greeting unknown dogs. This presentation will focus on dog body language basics, stress behaviors and absolute warning signs that a dog is asking for space immediately.
This presentation is open and free to the public.”
