Lakes Area Humane Society offers dog obedience training

Having a well-behaved dog makes the experience of having a pet much more enjoyable.

Imagine being able to take your dog for a walk without it pulling you the entire way or imagine having a dog that sits quietly when company comes to the door.

The Lakes Area Humane Society will host a basic dog obedience class starting on March 23. The cost is $60 and the profits will be applied toward the operating expense of the animal shelter.

This class will run one night per week for five weeks and will cover the basic obedience commands of "heel, sit, stay and come" and more.

This class is appropriate for dogs of all ages and for all dog owners, no matter what level of experience they may have.

The instructor will be Randy Buker. He has been teaching this class for eight years and has a total of more than 30 years of professional dog training experience. During those years, he's either trained or helped train approximately 1,000 dogs.

Beyond the basic commands, you'll learn how to understand your dog's behavior a bit better so you can interact with it in a manner that allows him to fit into your family.
