Obedience training classes for dogs start next week

Is your dog driving you crazy? Would you like some indoor activity options for your dog now that winter is here?

Join Lakes Area Recreation (LAR) for six weeks of obedience training classes. Class topics will center on the basic skills of sit, stay, come, down and heel, but instructors will throw in some trick training, learning theory and indoor drills for good measure.

Preparing to volunteer with dogs is also offered. This class is designed to help owners decide if their dogs are appropriate for volunteering and to give them the skills needed to make sure their visits are safe and rewarding.

These classes are held Wednesday nights at the LAR gym starting January 9 through February 13. To register, phone Lakes Area Recreation at (320) 762-2868.
