Dog obedience classes

DO YOU HAVE “THAT” DOG?

Two six-week sessions of dog obedience classes will be offered this spring by the Person County Recreation, Arts and Parks Department.

The classes will be held on Saturday mornings from April 7 to May 12 at the Olive Hill Ballfield and will be taught by Kay Farrell.

BASIC OBEDIENCE SESSION

These classes are for dogs aged eight weeks and older. The first class will be an orientation to discuss what the owners want to work on. A wellfitting buckle collar (no harnesses) and a six-foot leash are required.

The one-hour session begins at 9 a.m.

ADVANCED OBEDIENCE SESSION

These classes are for dogs eight weeks and older, who have been through prior obedience training classes.

The first class will be an orientation to discuss what the owners want to work on. A well-fitting buckle collar (no harnesses) and a six-foot leash are required.

The one-hour session begins at 10 a.m.

The registration fee for each class session is $43 for Person County residents and $64 for non-residents. There is a limit of 10 dogs per class.

Proof of current rabies and distemper vaccinations for all dogs over four months of age must be provided upon registration or at the first class.
