Having good manners during the holiday season is also important for the canine members of the family, and obedience training is a good way to ensure good manners.
Experienced volunteers working with Lakes Area Recreation provide this training for the dogs and their owners by conducting a series of six obedience classes starting Monday, November 3 from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. and continuing for each consecutive Monday through December 8.
These six one-hour classes will each have a separate kindergarten class for puppies and another class for adult dogs. Only gentle and reward training methods are used.
The curriculum will include socialization, basic obedience, and when appropriate, behavior problems will be addressed. The final 15 minutes of the hour-long classes include a recess period, during which the dogs and the trainers will develop confidence by having fun on the agility course, consisting of hurdles, ramps, tunnels, and a teeter-totter.
The classes will take place in the Lakes Area Recreation’s gymnasium accessible through the county library’s entrance off of Fillmore Street in Alexandria. The fee for each series of six classes is $50, payable to Lakes Area Recreation (LAR). To enroll in the class, call Donna Rae Pugh at (320) 762-8980 or e-mail email@example.com.
