PAWS helps keep people together with their pets. Imagine being too ill and financially strapped to take care of your dog. How can you lose your best friend on top of your health?? But it could easily happen. PAWS was formed to help keep people together with their best friends who could not otherwise afford to keep them. PAWS provides food, vet care, walks and, via The Pooch Coach, behavioral & training assistance to their clients. They serve hundreds of people and their pets, but they have waiting list almost as long as their client list!
PAWS Petchitecture is voted the #1 Bay Area Dog event every year. Great food & drink, a silent auction, live music and DOGS! Some dog companies will be on hand too. The Pooch Coach will be giving out dog training advice, Happy Hounds Massage will be giving dog massages, Petcube will be on hand to demonstrate their wonderful device, and more activities will be announced.

What is Dog Separation Anxiety?
Does your dog hate to be left alone?
Here’s what’s going on, and some steps you can take to help.
Dogs are pack animals and, in general, do not like being left alone. But they should be able to “self soothe” for several hours by themselves.
If your dog exhibits any of these behaviors when left in your house, car or tied up outside – or even when left with another person, he or she probably has separation anxiety.
-Incessant barking or howling
-Scratching at doors
-Tearing up rugs, couches or other items in your house or car
-Hurting his paws or teeth trying to get out of his crate
-Pooping or peeing
Mild reactions such as a little barking or an occasional chewed up shoe aren’t too much to worry about, and can usually be overcome quickly. If your dog is causing damage to himself or your property, please get help from a behaviorist as soon as possible. Call The Pooch Coach… We’re here to help!
Even if your dog is OK, these tips will help ensure he never has an issue.
