Eden, Pambula and Merimbula Veterinary Clinics are putting on a client night next Saturday, featuring the trainer of Red Dog as a special guest speaker.

Renowned as Australia’s leading film and television dog trainer after more than 30 years in the business, Luke Hura has over 1000 credits to his name, working across numerous films, television series, telemovies and TV commercials \.

Most notably, Luke trained Koko, the Australian Kelpie who played the title role in the hit movie Red Dog.

He will appear at the client night, to be held at the Pambula Merimbula Golf Club from 7pm on Saturday, May 24, to offer an insight into his training methods and what to look out for at different stages of your dog’s life.

Dr Linden Daniel, from the Pambula and Eden Veterinary Clinics, said the night will be a great opportunity for clients to get some tips and tricks from one of the best in the business.

“Last year we had a client night on horse dentistry, and the feedback we had from that was that people wanted more of those types of events,” Dr Daniel said.

“So we decided to do one on smaller animals, and thought it would be a great to have a night for dog owners.

“I rang Luke and he was more than happy to come and speak on the night.

“He’s only in the area for this one event, so it’s a great opportunity to come and get an insight into what he does.”

The night will focus on the different stages of a dog’s life, and what owners need to be aware of at each stage.

Owners are encouraged to come to the event with any questions or concerns about their dogs.

If you would like to attend, please RSVP to Pambula Veterinary Clinic on 6495 7873 by Thursday, May 22.
