School is back in session. Now is the perfect time for you to get to class and learn how you can help your pet live a healthy, happy life the natural way! Education is the key to the future of our children and educating yourself is the key to the future of our pets.  The Lightfoot Way is launching a new series of holisitc care classes this Fall at Urban Tails Doggy Daycare in Midtown/downtown Houston.
