Dog obedience class begins Tuesday

Guy Yeaman's Dog Obedience Class, sponsored by Carson City Recreation, begins again Tuesday and continues Tuesdays through Oct. 25 at Fuji Park. There will be no class on Oct. 4 or 11.

Registration is from 6-6:30 p.m. on the first night in the white exhibit hall. Classes are 6:30-7:30 p.m. Cost is $75 for the six-week session.

Positive training methods will be used to teach dogs the basic commands - heel, sit, stand, recall, etc. Any individual problems will be dealt with as the class progresses. Results are guaranteed. Each dog needs a training collar (choke collar, Halti, Martingale, head or body harness). Dogs must be current on all shots, and current vaccination records must be shown at the time of registration.

For information, call Guy Yeaman at 775-265-4530.
