Dogs Front and Center in Seattle Flash Mob

On Sunday, January 16th, a flash mob comprised of dogs and their owners formed in Seattle in honor of the Association of Pet Dog Trainers’ National Train Your Dog Month, which aims to promote the benefits of positive training and socialization. The flash mob was was organized and choreographed by Service Dog Academy, with the help of Sidekick Dog Training and Puget Sound Positive Training.

According to the APDT, the event is designed to promote the importance and benefits of training dogs to become happy and healthy companions. The Humane Society of the United States estimates that animal shelters care for about 6-8 million dogs and cats every year in the United States, and approximately 3-4 million of those are euthanized. One of the main reasons dogs are released to shelters is training. When dogs do not have basic manners or training, they can become overwhelming to a family. This event is trying to bring the importance of training to pet owners everywhere.

Here is a video of Seattle’s KOMO News coverage of the flash mob:
