<span style="color: #FF0000"><span style="font-weight: bold">Free NYC Event this Saturday Emphasizes Importance of Making Sure Your Urban Hound is a ?Canine Good Citizen? </span>
<span style="font-style: italic">Low Cost Microchipping & Advice From ?Ms. Doggy Manners?</span> </span>
The American Kennel Club (AKC) and Peter Cooper Village/Stuyvesant Town have teamed up to offer a free special event to remind pet owners about the importance of being a responsible dog owner. No matter where you live owning a dog is a big commitment, but for city-dwellers who share their walls, elevators, sidewalks and parks with so many other dog owners, it?s especially important to take your neighbors into consideration so that the rights of all dog owners are not adversely affected.

Responding to the public?s increased desire to own pets, Peter Cooper Village and Stuyvesant Town management recently announced that pets would be permitted on the property for the first time in its history. The properties are home to over 25,000 residents with over 11,000 apartment units.

The event, held THIS Saturday, June 28, from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m (rain date Sunday, June 29th) will include:
The AKC Canine Good Citizen Test?. CGC is a two-part program that stresses responsible pet ownership for owners and basic good manners for dogs. All dogs that pass the 10-step CGC test will receive a certificate issued by the AKC designating their dog as a ?canine good citizen.?
Low cost microchipping ($25) with proceeds going to the Mayor?s Alliance for NYC?s Animals.
A free handout of tips for urban pet-owners plus magazines, brochures and dog breed information provided by the AKC.
A ?Doggie Fun Zone? with a pool, toys and an agility demonstration. Pets can try their paw at agility too!
Free nail clipping and fun giveaways for your canine companion.

Wow this sounds awesome!

When my husband and I were down in the city a few weeks ago, I was really surprised at how many people owned dogs down there. It was nice to see...
