Fun in the Sun for Dogs and their Owners at the Shops at Stonefield

Posted: Updated:
ALBEMARLE COUNTY, Va (WVIR) -
Some dogs in Albemarle County had some educational fun in the sun Saturday. 

The Shops at Stonefield invited the community out for a dog training seminar.  Around 30 dog practiced sniffing, sitting, and following their owners' lead.

Professional dog trainer Karen Quillen says it's a great use of the space next to the shops. She also feels events like this are a great way to introduce the new shopping center to the community.

"Everybody knows that Charlottesville is a dog loving town, so they contacted me and asked if I would be interested, which is a great way to spend a Saturday and go to have lunch at one of the great restaurants with a patio because your dog is allowed on, so it's a community effort." said Quillen.

 Trainers will be out again for the dogs  on June 7 and again on June 21.
