In case you haven’t heard Cesar Millan The Dog Whisperer will be here in Jacksonville on Saturday June 1st! This amazing event is being presented by The Artist Series and I can’t even begin to express how excited we are to be attending to see Cesar Millan LIVE right here in Jacksonville!!!!!!!! We have been fans of The Dog Whisperer for years and years and can’t believe we finally get to see him in person after watching his shows, reading his books, buying his magazine, and collecting all The Dog Whisperer seasons on DVD!
Of course Cesar will be accompanied with his boy Junior on stage but he will also be working with some local rescue groups who will be bringing some of their adoptable dogs. These dogs will be up for adoption following the show. I don’t know about you, but we are ecstatic about seeing him work with these shelter pups.
We have our books Be The Pack Leader and Cesar’s Way packed up with fingers, toes, and paws crossed that we can get them autographed by The Dog Whisperer himself but we’ll also settle for a paw print signature from Junior.
If you would like to enter to WIN 2 free tickets to see Cesar live then go right now to our facebook page to enter and while you're there give us like to get your daily dose of dog photography!
Luci decided it was time to put on her reading glasses and do a little reading of her own. She picked two great books and was off to a great start but didn't realize how sleepy reading was going to make her. She ended up dozing off and dreaming about if she read Cesar's books and practiced what he teaches that she would be able to attend to see Cesar and Junior on Saturday. The girls are a little bummed they won't get to meet Junior but we promised them we would try our very best to get a paw print autograph for them from Junior himself!
Cesar Millan Live!, Saturday, June 1, 8:00PM, Times-Union Center – Moran Theater Jacksonville Florida
Cesar Millan will reveal the secrets of happier, healthier relationships between humans and their canine companions in his exciting live show! Joined by his famous four-legged companion, Junior, Cesar will share his philosophies and methods, then present examples via live demonstrations with multiple dogs. He will also present examples via live demonstrations with local, adoptable dogs. You will also have the chance to ask Cesar your questions during the audience Q&A session.
From his years of experience, Cesar will show that for a transformation to take place in a dog, the real transformation quite often needs to take place in their human first. You’ll be amazed and inspired by the simplicity with which Cesar’s Way can bring harmony and balance into you and your dog’s lives. See the star of Nat Geo WILD’s brand new series Leader of the Pack and the original host of National Geographic’s Dog Whisperer perform his incredible dog training techniques LIVE!

Goldenfest is almost here and the weather is looking promising with nothing but sunny skies. This Saturday April 6, 2013 GREAT Rescue of Northeast Florida will be hosting their 10th annual GoldenFest event at Dogwood Park. GREAT Rescue is a 501 (c)(3) non profit organization and all proceeds raised from this event will benefit G.R.E.A.T Rescue to help them continue rescuing, rehabilitating, and re-homing Golden Retrievers and Golden-mixes throughout Jacksonville and all of Northeast Florida! Over 749 Golden Retrievers have been rescued since December 2000.
We are ecstatic about meeting all the wonderful Golden Retrievers in Jacksonville! City Dog Photography participated last year for the first time and boy oh boy did we have a BLAST! It was like watching “goldens gone wild!” At most dog events we are vendors at dogs are required to be on a leash, but what is so wonderful about GoldenFest is that your dogs get to run free as the wind in the enclosed events area at Dogwood Park! The goldens get to let their hair down and do what they do best as goldens….. have FUN!
You will have many options to keep you busy during Goldenfest with many activities happening. There will be a silent auction, refreshments & food from Hurricane Grill & Wings | Julington Creek. Local dog vendor informational booths such as Southern Inspired Treats (SIT), Pet World, Green Cove Animal Hospital, and Southeast Veterinary Oncology and Internal Medicine will be setup. Music will be provided by DJ Roc, and three different contests for your pup to enter including newspaper retrieval, tennis ball retrieval, and best trick. So does your golden have what it takes to win one of these contests or all? Well you’ll have to enter them to find out! If you pup is not the competitive type and prefers to play in the water, small swimming pools will be accessible for them to make a splash in!
Don’t forget to stop by our booth because we’ll have some fun things going on including a pretty awesome giveaway! Patriotic Paws will also be set up next to us selling custom reversible dog bandannas made specially just for G.R.E.A.T. Rescue and for your goldens. Sizes will be available in Large, XL, and XXL to make sure it fits those furry golden necks. Here are a few "sneak peeks" of what Patriotic Paws has in store for you.
Ok, so to recap here are the details once again:

Just a few things to note before you attend: All male dogs over 8 months old MUST be neutered to be allowed in the park. Dogs must be well behaved off leash. And, if you are bringing a "sibling" that is a small dog, keep an eye on it to ensure it is safe around the many large, excited Goldens running around!

We will be having a doggie basket giveaway full of goodies for one lucky pooch! Raffle tickets will be on sell $1 or 6 tickets for $5 with 100% of proceeds going to Dawson the 18th month golden retriever that came from a rural shelter. He has been shot in the leg close to his elbow. The bullet is left inside and he has a broken ulna. The bullet will remain in Dawson’s leg and he will be in a cast for a few weeks while the bone heals. He will have to go to the specialist every week for a check-up and dressing change. It still is going to cost several hundred dollars, though, so your generous gesture by purchasing raffle tickets or by going directly to http://greatrescue.org/support/donate/ to make a donation is very much appreciated! GREAT Rescue is excited to help this adorable sweet boy but he needs your HELP! Dawson is currently being fostered by GREAT Rescue of Northeast Florida.
Dawson would like to say a few words:
Please continue to help me! My name is Dawson, I don't know why, but I was shot & still have a bullet in my shoulder area. I will have to continue having medical care for the next few months & have my cast changed monthly. The costs, even with generous vet discounts, are really high! I know it takes a lot to help me live a good life, but I will be forever GREATful!! You can make a donation, no matter how large or small, it will be SO appreciated!
