Merrick Pet Care, Dogington Post host responsible dog owner seminars in June

Eight live, free seminars will feature animal health experts throughout June

As part of an initiative to educate pet parents on how to have healthy, happy dogs and promote the importance of responsible dog parenting, The Dogington Post and Merrick Pet Care have teamed up to create "Merrick Pet Care's Dogington University," a series of eight live seminars presented by top animal health experts throughout June.

As part of the event, veterinarians and experts from around the country will give one-hour, live presentations to the readers and fans of the site.

Experts presenting as part of the series include Dr. Ernie Ward, the veterinarian for the "Rachel Ray Show" and author of Chow Hounds. Dr. Ward will speak on the topic of pet obesity. Holistic veterinarian and award-winning author, Dr. Shawn Messonnier will discuss allergies and skin problems in dogs, and how pet parents can treat them both conventionally and naturally.

Other panelists include Jennifer Kachnic, president of the Gray Muzzle Organization, who will speak about caring for senior dogs; Dr. Doug Kenney, veterinarian and expert on the topic of pet insurance; Leslie May and Johann the Dog, experts in green living; author John Clifton on the subject of vaccinations; Linda Tellington-Jones, the creator of TTouch, a system of animal training, healing and communication that allows people to relate to animals in a deeper, more compassionate way; and Thom Somes, "The Pet Safety Guy" will discuss summer hiking safety for dogs.

Anyone can register for free online, and a one-time registration will allow access to all eight free seminars.

"It is widely known that well behaved, healthy dogs stand a better chance of finding and staying in loving homes, away from overcrowded shelters and euthanasia," said Brandy Arnold, content editor for Dogington Post.
