It will focus on understanding “marker words” and start to build training exercises such as attention, find it, and sit. These basic commands will enable you to ask your fast-growing pup for alternative behaviors when he is exhibiting undesirable behaviors.

WE’RE SORRY, THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED.

Join us at Kitty Corner in the Red Hill Shopping Center in San Anselmo for “Hoppy Hour” and meet some of our wonderful rabbits (and maybe guinea pigs) available for adoption.

Hoppy Hour is a great opportunity to find out if a rabbit would be a good fit for your family. Learn what rabbits need to live a long and healthy life, what type of housing is best for them, what kind toys they like, and much more.

Our animal-lovin’ crew will be on hand to answer all of your bunny questions, so hop on over… you might just find the perfect “bun” to adopt.

People only, please – no pets allowed. No kitty adoptions during this event.
