The Continuing Studies Professional Dog Walker Program, part of the Animal & Pet Care series, is one of two finalists for the Urban Animal Summit Awards in the Communicator Category. This category "recognizes an organization that develops a concept and successfully delivers compelling content to promotes a better environment for urban animals”.

“We in Langara College, Health and Human Services, are honoured to be nominated for the Urban Animal Summit Award. From our perspective this is one of the most important programs in our area. As health care providers we understand the importance of pets and pet welfare to health and healing. We are passionate about making sure that dogs are taken care of properly and we believe that this course contributes important information for animal care. We are pleased and encouraged that others recognize this contribution as well,” said Program Manager Linda Turner, RN, PhD.

The Urban Animal Program mission is to illuminate successful strategies for urban animals and to provide recognition for those who lead. The Summit Awards are an essential element of delivering on that mission. Previous winners in the Communicator Category include Associate Veterinary Clinics, Ontario SPCA, and Dogs in Canada magazine. The other 2014 finalist is Planet Paws Pet Essentials. The winner will be announced at an awards gala, part of the 2014 Summit for Urban Animal Strategies, October 22-25, in Banff, Alberta. Congratulations to Program Coordinator Karen Ramsden, and the passionate and dedicated instructors in the program.
