Wood County Humane Society Sets Training
Does your dog need to learn some new tricks? Does Buster or Maggie jump on you as soon as you walk in the door? Embarrassed to take your pooch on a walk or to the pet store because of bad behavior?
The Wood County Humane Society (WCHS) will offer dog training classes to the community. The classes will be led by a certified professional dog trainer with knowledge- assessed certification (CPDT-KA). Training is completed through positive reinforcement using lure and reward techniques.
The course cost is $80.00. It will be held at the WCHS for one hour per week for five weeks. Those interested in training need to sign up for the course by appointment. Participants will be provided the necessary clicker equipment to aid in the positive reinforcement training style. Varying levels of classes will be offered according to the dog’s ability and knowledge. Skills being taught range from obedience basics such as sit and stay to more fun tricks like high five and roll over.
The shelter is located at 801 Van Camp Dr., Bowling Green. Call to schedule your appointment at (419) 352-7339. At the time of scheduling, participants will be given a list of suggested items to bring to help make the session a successful experience for both the dog and owner.
