1:30 pm The facts and definitions of Reiki Energy Healing for Pets with Starlight Pet Healing, LLC, Christal Goldman
Reiki (pronounced Ray-Kee) translates to “universal life force energy” and is an amazing healing methodology discovered in Japan. Offered as an alternative healing too, Reiki can be found today in many Veterinary and human hospitals, nursing homes and private practice offices. While it has been mainly used for healing people, in recent years we’ve realized how beneficial this healing system can be for animals. Please join Cristal Goldman with Starlight Pet Healing and learn How it Works, How it is Administered to Pets, Research on Reiki, and How you can learn to administer.
2:00 pm Humane Education Through Storytelling with Author Sunny Weber
Award-winning local author Sunny Weber, uses both non-fiction and fiction writing skills to help pet owners build rich relationships with their animal companions. Her Pups & Purrs Non-fiction books describe relationship-building through trust. - Beyond Flight or Fight: A Compassionate Guide for Working with Fearful Dogs seeks to save the most often euthanized dog personality. Fearful, timid, and shy dogs are rejected when well-meaning people do not know how to address their needs. - City Dog Walking Safety & Etiquette explains the history of the dog/human partnership and how those relationships have changed; how to meet your dog’s needs—both physically and emotionally; what equipment is best; communication skills; and how to make sure you and your dog companion are safe in urban and suburban environments. Sunny’s Pups & Purrs Children’s Book Series features multi-layered thematic coming-of-age stories that every animal-loving child can identify with. Canine protagonists tell their own stories—showing children how dogs see their world. Every dog goes through what children do—bullying, rejection, longing to belong, and deciding what kind of grown-up to become. Character growth begins in childhood—and puppyhood! Visit Sunny in Booth 426 for personal signings of her unique stories.

Zig Zag & Wag Lure Course
Racing across a grassy course with the wind in their face, free as a bird, and a “lure” just within reach? It doesn’t get much better than that, folks! Lure coursing is a sport for dogs (and even the occasional kitty!) which involves chasing an exciting mechanical “lure” that jerks, jumps, wiggles, and turns on a dime, much like those elusive squirrels and rabbits that somehow (luckily) always manage to get away. So any pet who enjoys an exciting game of “Chase,” regardless of age, ability, handicap, size, or skill, is welcome to give the Lure Course a try! The sport of lure coursing is rapidly increasing in popularity, and once you’ve taken a gander at this game in action, you’ll see exactly why. This is a very popular feature, so those whose pooch (or courageous cat) would love a chance to give it a go, should make their way right over to the course and sign up - All runs only $5!
