Dog training classes start next week

Lakes Area Recreation in Alexandria is offering dog obedience training for basic obedience, rally obedience and therapy dog training. The classes start April 9 and 11.

Basic obedience classes will include socialization, basic obedience and when appropriate, behavior problems will be addressed. Only gentle and reward training methods are used.

Rally obedience picks up where basic obedience leaves off.

Therapy dogs visit people in a variety of settings such as nursing homes, schools and hospitals.
