Bartlett Arboretum & Gardens

151 Brookdale Road Stamford, CT, 06903

Years ago OPIN began a search for a new home for our free Wednesday night dog training classes.  We are honored to say that Stamford’s own Bartlett Arboretum & Gardens answered the call and has been hosting classes ever since.  Free dog training is held every Wednesday night outdoors when weather permits and indoors in in the winter. Check OPIN’s Facebook page for news of cancellations if weather is really bad.  Please take time to visit Bartlett Arboretum with your people friends too.  Checkout Bartlett Arboretum concert lineup, camps and classes.  It really is one of Stamford’s hidden treasures and well worth a visit.

Choice Pet 

Choice Pet Locations

Their story says it all.  Started in 1979 with the simple idea of offering pets the absolute best products for health and well being.  At last count Choice Pet has over 17 stores in the area.   OPIN is a longtime partner of Choice Pet and their Rescue Me program. Choice Pet recognizes the benefits of pet adoption and gives each qualifying OPIN adopter a $25 gift card to use as they like in one of the many Choice Pet stores.  Please consider shopping Choice Pet locations in person or even shop Choice Pet online.
