This is a beginner dog training class and is designed for the young and not so young. We work in small groups with several trainers assisting. The first night will be an orientation and information night held on Monday, Nov. 2, at Messalonskee High School for the two-legged family member/s only. (Only one registration per dog - even if more than one family member plans to attend.) You will get a helpful manual and many issues will be discussed including the commands taught such as walking on a loose leash, stay and come exercises as well as other techniques. We will also discuss your behavior concerns. The five subsequent evenings will be held on Mondays, Nov.9 - Dec. 7, at the Fairfield Community Center. All dogs will need to be on a leash at all times, and NO dogs will be allowed if they are aggressive. Once you have registered, you will receive a packet in the mail from the Adult Ed office to read, sign, and bring with you to the orientation class. Please bring proof of vaccinations, your completed packet, and the $100 material fee payable to the instructor (NO CREDIT CARDS) to the orientation night. Please pre-register by Oct. 19. Limit 10 dogs and 1 or 2 immediate family members. Masks and social distancing will be required.
