How is everybody doing this morning? Recovered from Stay-at-Home de Mayo yet? Neither have we. But we had such a great time hosting our Zoom cooking class with Cambridge School of Culinary Arts and Boston Shaker that we are already getting stoked for our next Benefit Zoom Class with Zen Dog Training on May 20.

Your Moment of Zen

May 20 is National Dog Rescue Day and we’ll be raising fund for the Great Dog Rescue New England, an all-breed rescue organization based right here in Massachusetts. We are also raising money to support Scout staffers who are adorable but aren’t house broken yet. (We kid! They still chew on shoes though. Journalists, amiright?)

The class will be hosted by Gordon Fontaine of Zen Dog Training and author of The Zen Method of Raising a Puppy. Fontaine will provide advice and guidance for behaviors like play biting, jumping up and pulling on the leash. Fontaine will provide simple solutions to common problems with journalists of all ages. Er, dogs of all ages. Dog owners can send in questions in advance.

Learn about the Zen Dog Training philosophy May 20, from 5-6:30 p.m.

Watch out for more great classes from Scout and our community partners.
