ELLSWORTH: Woodlawn is pleased to team up with Coastal K9 Consulting, to offer two Dog Training classes this spring. The first class, geared for puppies 10 weeks to 5 months old, will be held Wednesday evenings, May 1, 8, 15, and 22 from 6 to 7:30 pm. The second class, geared for dogs 6 months and older, will be held Wednesday evenings, May 29, June 5, 12, and 19, from 6 to 7:30 pm.
The puppy class is a great start for those pet owners looking to learn basic household manners, social skills with other puppies, and fun activities to do with their little pup aged 10 weeks to 5 months old. The cost for the 4 week class scheduled on Wednesdays, May 1-22, from 6 to 7:30 pm, is $225 for Woodlawn members/$235 for non-members. Puppies must have had their second round of vaccines. Proof of vaccination is required.
The focus of the second class scheduled Wednesdays, May 29 to June 19, from 6 to 7:30 pm will be on good manners. This class is designed to give you the skills to have your dog focused on you with an understanding of canine behavior. They will learn polite commands of: walk with me, sit, down, all 4 paws on the ground (no jumping), & get to your place (stay) all while in a social setting with other dogs. This class is geared for dogs 6 months and older who had their second round of vaccines. Proof of vaccination is required. The cost for the 4 weeks is $225 for Woodlawn members/$235 for non-members.
