    Hello All,

    Please discuss and help decide on the following sponsorship. John approached them for the conference. They could not be there but they made the following offer:

    From: Dan at Walk Your Dog With Love <>


    I would love to provide free product samples to your attendees, along with A) our professional level wholesale discount, B) no-inventory affiliate program, and C) our free-to-use fundraising program for their favorite dog shelter or dog program (PTSD, Kids, Autism, etc) as a perk of their membership with your organization . . . yet not to pay to provide this perk.

    I could even offer these perks now, so all your members can take advantage of these offers from the comfort of their living room couches, via email. Why wait until the conference. We would send interested members a voucher so they can pick the size and color harness that they want for their free test drive.

    Walk Your Dog With Love makes one of the few truly *compassion based, force free and fear free and R+ front-leading dog harnesses on the market. They are made in the USA of all USA sourced material – not in China, and we offer customer service by thoughtful concerned people who answer the phone and have immediate access to the owner of the company (me), which is unheard of these days. We also offer a no-minimum order wholesale program (no one does that) and our unique no-inventory Affiliate program- perfect for professionals who don’t ‘sell’ things because their goal is to help people with relationships with their pets. And of course, we always want to help the organizations that your members are connected with to raise money- whether it is a shelter that needs funds or a service dog organization or any other kind of dog/pet related fundraiser.

    *I read your quote at the bottom of your email. The reason I mention this is because we are ‘more’ than just a harness – we are a Movement of Thought – about how animals should and need to be treated. We are a Mission Based Manufacturer ™ meaning that we do more than ‘just make stuff’. Indeed, we are here for a purpose. One of our Prime Missions is to help people get off of their dogs neck’s while walking. I often ask people How Would Christ Walk His Dog? Right, if he was here today, in the flesh, with cars, trucks, etc. The point of my question is that He would not walk His dog by its neck – for several reasons. Reasons #1 is because it is neither Compassionate, Loving, Caring nor necessary (Yes, those are three reasons, not just one!). Another reason is because any Shepherd knows that you can only lead animals (and people) from the front.

    So like you, we are motivated to make a difference, not just to sell stuff. So I hope that we can work something out to offer the perk of Walk Your Dog With Love’s dog professional programs to your entire membership.




    ~The World’s Best Dog Harness~

    Because too many dogs are abandoned for “behavioral issues” Walk Your Dog With Love gives these harnesses to dog rescues for free; please contact us for program details.

    If it is easy enough to poste this on the web site for members, then I don’t see a down side to offering this.
