Dachshund owners meet at Strawberry Fields May 24

MARYSVILLE — A Dachshund owners group will conduct its first meet-up at 2 p.m. on Saturday, May 24, at the Strawberry Fields For Rover Off-Leash Dog Park at 6100 152nd St. NE in Marysville. All Dachshunds who are friendly with people and their fellow dogs, and are up to date on their vaccines, are invited to attend.

Marysville Dog Owners Group member Stephanie Harbeck, who owns the Rustic Canine dog-training business, is spearheading this event.

Harbeck teaches positive reinforcement dog training. She has one Dachshund named Scooter, who won third place at last year's Poochapalooza wiener dog races. Harbeck and Scooter were asked to be a part of the Seattle Seahawks' halftime show last year.

Harbeck plans to have the Dachshund group meet up once a month in the small dog area of the off-leash dog park.
