(Bowling Green)- Does your dog need to learn some new tricks? Does Buster or Maggie jump on you as soon a walk in the door? Embarrassed to take your pooch on a walk or to the pet because of bad behavior? We may be able to help.
The Wood County Humane Society (WCHS) is excited to announce that dog training classes are now available 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 will have an $80.00 fee and 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 Drive, Bowling Green, Ohio. Please feel free to 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.
The WCHS, located in Bowling Green, Ohio, is a private, non-profit managed admission shelter providing care for homeless and abused pets and investigating cruelty complaints in Wood County. The organization receives no funding from government organizations, The United Way, or national humane organizations, instead relying on earned revenue and the generosity of individual donors and businesses to fund our programs such as Safe Haven and food assistance programs, spay/neuter transport, and educational presentations. The WCHS provides care for hundreds of animals each year—from dogs and cats, to horses, goats, and pocket pets. All animals admitted into our adoption program are housed and cared for as long as it takes to find their fur-ever home. For more information on adopting and/or volunteering, see:
