Humane society offers dog obedience classes

Have you recently gotten a new dog or puppy? Do you love all of its adorable antics, but have found that he has also brought with some undesirable behaviors?

Does he love to jump up enthusiastically on all visitors who enter your home, barks at anything that comes into his line of sight or delightfully drags you down the road when out on walks?

If these scenarios sound familiar, the Lakes Area Humane Society has the class for you and your pet.

Starting on Tuesday, September 30, at 6 p.m., the Lakes Area Humane Society (LAHS) will offer Beginner Dog Obedience Training Classes.

The classes will take place on five consecutive Tuesday evenings from 6 to 7:30 p.m. and will be taught by local professional dog trainer, Randy Buker.

Classes will be held in the gym at the Alexandria Technical College in Alexandria. The first class on September 30 will be without dogs present.

Cost for the five-week course is $60 per dog enrolled and class size is limited to the first 15 registrants. To register, call the Lakes Area Humane Society at (320) 759-2260.

All proceeds will benefit the animals cared for at the shelter.
