Dog and Puppy Obedience Classes beginning Soon
Canine Good Citizen for adult dogs and Puppy Kindergarten for the puppies

Puppy graduation - 2017 Oakley          Obedience classes are a great place to spend quality, fun time with your dog or puppy. The Humane Society's dog and puppy obedience classes provide that opportunity as you work together toward your puppy or dog becoming a well-behaved companion at home and in the community. Basic Training and good manners for the dogs are the focus of both classes.
           Puppy Kindergarten will be held on Thursdays and Dog Obedience will be on Mondays. Classes meet at 6 p.m. for seven weeks for puppy class and eight weeks for dog obedience class. The fee is $80 for the course.
          These beginner classes help the handler teach the dog to sit, stay, lie down, not to pull on the leash while walking, not to jump on other dogs or people and to come when called. "It's a completely positive activity and a great way to bond with your dog," according to Kathy Hodge, Executive Director of the Humane Society of Calloway County. "The more you work with your dog, the better you both get."
           Socializing with new people and places in important in the classes. "Socialization with other dogs and with new people is an extremely important part of a dog's development into a good citizen," says Hodge. "The pandemic has limited the options that we usually have for socializing our pups and the obedience classes can help with that."
