Program Details:
The friendship between humans and dogs goes back thousands of years. In this fun and insightful evening, we’ll discuss how dogs are much more than great companions. They can teach you how to work smarter and be happier using techniques that come naturally to them. Presenters Ellen Galvin and Patrick Galvin live and work with Bella the Boxer, America’s self-proclaimed smartest work dog. They are also the co-authors with Bella of the recently-released book Secrets of a Working Dog: Unleash Your Potential and Achieve Success. Specifically, Ellen and Patrick will lead a conversation about how dogs can help you:

·       Make happiness happen

·       Keep your eyes on the ball

·       Shake off setbacks and pursue your dreams

·       Show meaningful appreciation

·       Incorporate play into your daily life

Special Opportunities:

You’ll have the chance to meet Bella the Boxer who comes to the San Francisco Bay Area about once a year. When she’s not begging for snacks, Bella will be selling “pawtographed” copies of her book for $19.95. Fifty-percent of proceeds from books sold this evening will be donated to Give a Dog a Bone (GADAB), a Bay Area non-profit organization which is focused on improving the quality of life for San Francisco’s long-term shelter dogs while providing them with real world training and socialization.

    It’s not just because I’m Bella’s grandma, it’s also because she’s taught me how special a dog can be, that I must say this book is full of terrific life lessons!
