Pet Loss Support Group

Our Companions Valerie Friedman Program Center
34 Sanrico Drive, Manchester, Ct

6:15 - 7:30 pm

Pet BereavementThere is something deep within our nature that loves the special relationship of the human-pet bond. In many ways, our bonds with our beloved pets are stronger, purer, and far more intimate than our other relationships. 
Andrea Seader, a certified pet loss and bereavement counselor through the Association for Pet Loss and Bereavement (APLB), will be facilitating a support group for pet loss and bereavement, hosted by Our Companions.

The group will be an emotionally safe environment  that is caring, compassionate, and supportive. Group members will also learn about the grieving process, so that they may evaluate their own healing and provide peer support to others.  The group is appropriate for those who have had a loss at any time, and also addresses anticipatory grief and other types of loss, recently or in the past, such as disappearance, divorce, moving, relinquishing.

Each session is a fee of $25.00, but a sliding scale will be considered. Cash or check is due at the beginning of each session. A portion of each fee will be donated to Our Companions.

Contact Andrea by e-mail (andrea106@cox.net) to register or for further information. Feel free to forward this to others who might be interested.

Speak Dog Seminar

Our Companions Valerie Friedman Program Center
34 Sanrico Drive, Manchester, Ct

6:30 - 8:00 pm

How to Speak Dog

Your dog is constantly communicating with you–but are you paying attention to what he's saying? The ability to read your dog’s body language and sounds they make will strengthen your bond and relationship. This presentation will provide you with the knowledge to recognize the slightest cues your dog is using to communicate how they are feeling. 

When you learn to Speak Dog you can use this new knowledge to make your dog’s world a happier place. 

The seminar is from 6:30- 8PM at Our Companion’s Valerie Friedman Program Center located at 34 Sanrico Drive, in Manchester, CT. Seminars are free but a tax deductible donation is appreciated. Click here to register.
