Dogtopia of South Coast, is excited to partner with Next Step Service Dogs and Jobi the Lab in an effort to reach children and veterans here in Orange County.

On January 12, 2019, children and veterans, from all over the OC, will gather at Dogtopia to celebrate the 1st Birthday of Quinn, a service dog in training with Next Step Service Dogs, sponsored by Dogtopia South Coast.

Next Step Service Dogs supports courageous veterans, active military personnel, and first responders with PTSD, TBI and/or mobility limitations by giving them the tools to take the next steps forward in their lives by assisting in the training of amazing service dogs.

This monumental birthday celebration, for Quinn, a F2 Goldendoddle, will start at 10:00am and include a book reading by the author of the Jobi the Lab series.

Jobi and the Magic Collar is a story narrated by an eight-year-old girl named Grace. While vacationing in Hawaii, Grace discovers a collar with an ancient coin tagged on it and asks her parents if she can buy it for her dog Jobi, a Chocolate Labrador Retriever. Her parents relent and purchase the collar. Upon returning home, Grace places the magic collar around Jobi’s neck. Suddenly, Jobi talks. No one believes Grace. Finally, Jobi talks to the entire family and imparts words of wisdom.

Refreshments will be served and a “magic collar” will be gifted to each child in attendance. Books will be on hand for purchasing and 15% of the book sales will be donated to the Dogtopia Foundation.

The Dogtopia Foundation enables dogs to positively change our world. To accomplish this, the Foundation is currently funding programs focused around three worthy causes:  Service Dogs for Veterans, Youth Literacy Programs and Employment Initiative for Adults with Autism. 100% of donations received by the Foundation is given directly to the organizations they support.
