Dog classes, programs highlighted in DeKalb

The DeKalb Park District has scheduled the second annual Going to the Dogs Workshop from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. March 13. This free family event will introduce a variety of dog programs offered by the DeKalb Park District. Dog owners are invited to stop by without their dogs for a short visit or to stay for the entire event.

Learn about dog obedience classes, tracking, dog massage and canine good citizen programs. Did you know that canine good citizen certifications can help reduce some homeowner’s insurance rates? Regardless of where owners decide to go for training, it is always good to have an idea of different techniques and methods. Owners will have the chance to talk to the park district’s trainer, who has more than 30 years of progressive experience and numerous certifications in the dog training field.

Husky Haven and Fresh Start rescue organizations also will attend with animals looking for a forever home. Representatives of the Nutro Company, Cortland Animal Hospital and the Petco Salon will be on hand to answer questions, give advice and provide grooming demonstrations. There will be children’s craft activities, free raffles and door prizes.

The event will be held at the DeKalb Park District Haish Gym facility, 303 S. Ninth St. in DeKalb. For information, call 815-756-8560. Do not bring pets to the workshop.
