Schutzhund Demonstration

Maximum K9 Service will be doing a Schutzhund demonstration which will include obedience, dumbbell retrieval, tracking, and protection work and a detection demonstration

Schutzhund tests dogs of all breeds for the traits necessary for police-type work. Dogs that pass Schutzhund tests should be suitable for a wide variety of tasks: police work, specific odor detection, search and rescue, and many others. The purpose of Schutzhund is to identify dogs that have or do not have the character traits required for these demanding jobs.

Eric Powers, Your Connection To Nature

For as long a he can remember, Eric Powers loved playing with turtles, salamanders, snakes and bugs.  Today, Powers heads and works full-time for Your Connection To Nature (YCTN), a Long Island based company that he started in 2003 to help people appreciate and gain a deeper respect for nature.  “My mission is to save the Earth by helping  save plants and animals from extinction,” Powers boldly states.  “I do this through education, by showing people animals and taking them into nature.”  Eric will be at the Pet Expo in the Park on Sunday with some of his reptiles and other animals.
