Giving dog training back to the dogs: Chirag Patel coming to B.C.

If you haven’t purchased tickets yet, don’t miss your chance.

Internationally renowned animal behavioural and training consultant Chirag Patel is coming to B.C. to share his expertise. Based in the UK, Patel specializes in animal training and problem behaviours for pets and zoo animals. In Vancouver for the Canadian Federation of Humane Societies National Animal Welfare Conference, Patel will travel the province for five interactive workshops for people who want to learn more about training their canine companions – where the dog’s welfare is top priority.

“Come and learn how training can be fun for you and your dog,” says Kim Monteith, BC SPCA manager, animal welfare. “Pet dog guardians, professional dog trainers, veterinary hospital staff and shelter workers will find these events extremely valuable. We’re grateful and so excited Chirag is taking the time to offer these workshops.”

There are six spots available for participants who want to bring their dog. Workshops start on April 24 and run from 6-9 p.m. in Nanaimo (April 24), Victoria (April 25), Kelowna (April 27), Kamloops (April 28) and North Cariboo (Prince George, April 29).
