Ami Moore, The Chicago Dog Coach and author of The Alphatude Attiude, will assist in establishing the committees for the Dog Park at Adams/Sangamon in the West Loop in Chicago, IL. The meeting will be on Wednesday April 28th at 7pm at Jack’s Tap Bar and Restaurant

Ami Moore has always been a staunch supporter of dog parks in urban environments. The Chicago Dog Coach believes that Activity for the dog is one of the three main needs that a loving dog owner needs to provide in order for their dog to be healthy and happy. The other important components that a dog needs from the dog owner are Alphatude (leadership) and Amiability (education).

“I am so happy," stated Ms. Moore, "that the West Loop will have a brand new dog park that will serve the community. Dogs need off-leash social time with each other in order to reduce aggressiveness”

Ami Moore was asked to share her tips for proper dog manners at the dog park with attendees.

Ami Moore attended the ground-breaking ceremonies in the fall of 2009 and has supported the efforts of Alderman Bob Fioretti and Alderman Walter Burnett in pushing for the new park at the Adams site.

The Chicago Dog Coach’s 3 Easy Tips For Dog Parks are:
1. Make sure that your dog will come when called as this can prevent dog fights.
2. Never take dog treats or human food into a dog park as this can escalate aggression.
3. If a dog fight does break out at the dog park, move your dog as far from the dog fight as possible. First make sure your dog is safe and then go back and help.

Chicago Dog Coach Ami Moore discusses activity, Alphatude, amiability and many other important subjects in her book, “The Alphatude Attitude” and in her upcoming DVD, “Urban Alphatude 1-2-3” which will be released later in 2010.

“I always tell my clients," continued Ms. Moore, "that their dogs need leadership more than love. ‘Alphatude’ is the leadership attitude expressed in a way that the dog understands. Dogs don’t really understand abstractions like words or emotions. Dogs understand concrete communication: tone, body language and facial expression. For some people this is a difficult concept. I tell them not to worry. Just fake it until you make it!”
