Oakville & Milton Humane Society Will Try To Break Record Of Largest Training Session...Help Out If You're In The Area!

OAKVILLE BEAVER - The Oakville & Milton Humane Society wants to set a Guinness World Record and it needs your help.
During Critters Gone Country on Sunday, Oct. 3 the humane society will attempt to break the Guinness World Record for ‘the most dogs receiving a training lesson in one location’. 
The previous record was set at an event in The Netherlands in 2004 and was 257 dogs. 
In order to beat the current record, the humane society invites Oakville dog owners to bring their ‘canine best friend’ to Critters Gone Country; the Guinness World Record attempt will take place at 1:30pm in the ball diamonds at Cornwall Road Park. 
Dogs must be leashed, but do not need to have any previous obedience experience.
Genevieve Reisinger, dog behaviour specialist with the humane society, will give the lesson and will be a simple, fun trick designed to enhance the human animal bond.
The humane society set sights on breaking the record in order to highlight the importance of dog training in the success of dogs staying in ‘forever homes’.  Dogs who receive basic obedience training form a stronger bond with their owners, and have fewer of the behaviours that often result in the surrendering the dog to the humane society.
The event is sponsored by Oliver Pets & Co.
