Steve Dale at Treetime Christmas Creations


It’s a Petapalooza at Treetime Christmas Creations on Pepper Road in Lake Barrington.

Treetime and the mere word means Christmas – this is a Chicago area tradition.

I make appearances all the time at shelters and veterinary meetings around the world, but this is my first time at Treetime, and I can’t wait to see you there on Saturday, November 13 from 1 to 3pm.  Aside from answering your pet behavior questions (dog and cats too), I will discuss the Fear Free initiative and what animal assisted therapy dogs do, like our dog Hazel, who you can meet.  Hazel can even offer pawtographs.

Also, as a part of Petapalooza:

  • Pet photos: Bring your pet to pose for a holiday photo with Mr. and Mrs. Claus with a donation to A Heart For Animals, a no-kill non-profit rescue based in Huntley. Here’s one of the many cats available for adoption. And this one is even name for me! Pet photos will be taken inside Treetime from noon to 4pm.
  • Shop the Haute Diggity Dog Trunk Show: Haute Diggity Dog is the original designer parody plush dog toy company offering stylish & sophisticated toys, beds, and accessories for your four-legged friend. Haute Diggity Dog will give a percentage of sales to PAWS Chicago.

Treetime is at 22102 N. Pepper Road in Lake Barrington and is open weekends from 9am to 5pm.
