Myles ‘DogBeGreat’ Stubblefield amplifies celebration of African American culture
Let Myles ‘DogBeGreat’ Stubblefield amp up the Juneteenth Festival vibe by creating his own celebratory event based on his love of dogs and the environment. We discussed Myles’ dedication to these passions in a previous article. As the founder of Buffalo Worm Works and Dog Learning Center (DLC), Myles has masterfully charted a course for others, whether dog lovers or earth activists.
Now, Myles has chosen to shine a light on African-American history in a different way. His event — an extension in support of Buffalo’s historic Juneteenth festival — will demonstrate how to better educate dog owners about canine obedience training. Myles specializes in dogs that need the most help, whether they are unwanted, have been abused or have simply never been trained properly. Anyone wishing to gain insight into the training process is encouraged to attend this informative event, which will ultimately help people become better dog owners (and best friends) with their furry friends.
“This unique celebration is honestly an expression of my heart out loud,” Myles said. “I love Buffalo and invite everyone to come out and share together in peace and kindness.”
Myles, canine behavior specialist, will be joined by Nickel City Canine Rescue.
For those who attend the event, a portion of the proceeds will be directed towards rebuilding the Juneteenth Headquarters roof in downtown Buffalo! The support will also benefit K9 Vision Inc. and BFLO Worm Works, both of which are black-owned businesses that have been impacted by the pandemic.
Ultimately, Myles also seeks to expand on the role that animals have played in traditional African cultures – a role that is often overlooked. Her goal is to educate the community about animal welfare and sustainability – two topics close to her heart. Of course, the event is also about unity and togetherness, which we could all use a little more of these days.
The Juneteenth Community BBQ will be held at the Dog Learning Center, 317 Ensminger Rd. Tonawanda Ny 14150 on June 18, 2022, from 1-6 p.m., with local vendors, music, food, and more.
