Lakes Area Humane Society offers advanced dog obedience training

The Lakes Area Humane Society is sponsoring an Advanced Dog Obedience Training Class starting on Tuesday, January 6 at 6 p.m.

All dogs who have mastered the following basic obedience skills: heel, sit, stay and come, are welcome. The class will focus on perfecting those skills and will teach recall, down and working off leash.

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

The first class on January 6 will be held at the LAHS shelter without dogs present. The following four classes will be held at Alexandria Technical College.

Cost for the five-week course is $60 per dog enrolled and class size is limited to the first 15 registrants.

Organizers say this will be a fun and relaxed learning experience. To register, contact the LAHS shelter at (320) 759-2260.
