Fall Dane-a-Thon – Sunday, September 22, 2013

We are again asking Dane-a-Thon participants to get sponsorship from friends and family or simply make a donation. Your generosity helps support the many Great Danes we rescue who are desperately in need of help and makes it possible to save those who would otherwise be euthanized because of prohibitive costs to get them well.

  • BRB K9 Professional Animal Wrangling (Sherri Davis & Team) will be staging an entertaining, crowd-interactive, 25 minute ‘Darn Good Dog Show’ to music. Participants can bring their dogs into the ring after the show to try agility if they choose, or get one-on-one training for their dogs.
    The BRB K9 Team will also interact with Participants’ dogs throughout the event.
    Sherri and her team do behavioural modification and train dogs for TV Commercials & Movies. BRB K9 is considered one of the top training groups in Canada and generously donates behavioural modification services for our incoming Danes requiring assistance before adoption.

To behold a Dane is to perceive a Deity in disguise. In the company of a multitude, Heaven is readily apparent….. Anonymous
