My Dog, My Buddha Book Talk & Signing


DATE: Monday, Dec. 4th, 2017

TIME: 6:30 – 9 pm

LOCATION: Fiona’s Irish Pub, Kingstowne, VA (www.fionasirishpub.com)

Kimberly Artley is the Founder of PACKFIT: Dog Training and Behavior, author of the celebrated book, “My Dog, My Buddha”, and has been described as the “Mary Poppins” of dog training. Her experience with her “game changer dog”, Lobo, in combination with her background of nutrition, psychology, learning, and behavior, for both human and canine, blends seamlessly together, allowing her to take a most comprehensive approach to successfully addressing a wide variety of canine behavioral challenges.

“Behavioral issues” is one of the most common reasons dogs are given up on, bounced around, and surrendered to shelters ~ more than half ending up euthanized. And it doesn’t have to be this way. Kimberly Artley has dedicated her life to learning about the many variables that feed and influence both human and canine psychology, behavior and health, in order to start a much-needed global conversation and prevent this type of outcome. “Bad dogs” aren’t born, but created… and, more often than not, unknowingly.

“My Dog, My Buddha” is a collection of 100 life lessons for us on behalf of Dog, and was written to educate, empower, and equip the human end of the leash. To broaden our perspective, offset misunderstanding, bridge the disconnect between human and canine, and vastly improve quality of life.
