Chris Perondi and Vinny Valentino: The Big Book of Tricks for the Best Dog Ever

Dog lovers! Join us for an evening with trainer Chris Perondi and his amazing dog Vinny Valentino!  In this family-friendly program you'll not only see some jaw-dropping dog tricks, you'll learn how Chris trains his rescue dogs to accomplish stunning feats of acrobatics and intelligence. And also how you can train your own dog to accomplish tricks, whether beginner level or advanced. This is a free event. You must purchase your copy of The Big Book of Tricks for the Best Dog Ever from The Book Stall if you enter the book-signing queue. This event is co-sponsored by the Community Animal Rescue Effort, a Skokie-based organization that rehomes companion pets into safe, healthy, lifelong homes; serves as an educational and counseling resource; and works to reduce pet overpopulation. Our other partner for this event is Nicole Jacob's local company Renegade Made, devoted to a line of craft and activity kits to help teach kids altruism in a fun, cheeky way. 

Chris Perondi runs Stunt Dog Productions and the Stunt Dog Academy near Stockton, California with his wife, Suhey, and their team of canine performers. They perform more than 1,000 shows every year across the country in venues like Dollywood, Six Flags, and Silver Dollar City in Branson, MO. Theyve been featured on The Today Show, The Ellen DeGeneres Show, The Oprah Winfrey Show, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, and more. 

A portion of the proceeds will benefit Community Animal Rescue Effort (C.A.R.E.™) an all-volunteer, nonprofit organization with a mission to serve the communities of Chicago's North Shore by fostering and supporting healthy, positive relationships between people and companion animals. . **Our Dog Trick Tip Jar at the event will allow you to make an additional donation to a C.A.R.E.
