February Speaker Series

The SaddleBrooke Dog Park is honored to present Christine D. Butkiewicz, DVM MPH MLIS, Valley Fever Center for Excellence, University of Arizona for a presentation on Valley Fever. The FREE presentation is February 28th, 1PM in the Mountainview Ballroom. “You do not have to be a Dog Park Member to attend”, said Kathleen Dunbar, SaddleBrooke Dog Park President, “The Dog Park’s vision is to be a valued community asset that promotes responsible dog ownership and we feel knowledge is important part of being a responsible owner. We are offering Obedience classes and feel it equally important to provide health information to SaddleBrooke. So many of our residents are from all over the country and Valley Fever is an unknown disease.”

Dr. Butkiewicz graduated from the Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine at Tufts University in 1998. She started her career working as a small animal practitioner in the Chicago area. In 1999, she moved with her husband to Tucson, Arizona, and, after joining a practice there, received a rapid education on Valley Fever in dogs..

RILEY'S PLACE

Riley's Place

Is our new park within the SaddleBrooke Dog Park.  It is a multi-purpose facility but specifically a Senior Dog Park for our older dogs who no longer can handle the rambunctiousness of younger, more  energetic dogs.


We will also be offering training classes with professional dog trainers for all SaddleBrooke residents in hopes that this will assist our community in getting training for their dogs.

Where did the name come from?

Dr. David and Pat Mersy made a substantional donation to the park in memory of Riley their loved Shih-Tzus.  

Riley lived to be 17 years and 4 months.
