By Patricia Sullivan

Pittsboro, NC – Central Carolina Community College will be offering a couple of dog obedience classes that are scheduled to begin on January, 27.

Beginner Dog Obedience Class
Have fun in this intensive beginner obedience/home management class for dogs over 5 mos. Students will learn to train their dogs with positive reinforcement, walk on a loose leash, come when called, sit, down and stand. First class is a mandatory orientation – no dogs – owners only. Great class for new dog owners. Helps build the human to dog bond. There is no age limit. Old dogs can learn new things.

Day, Dates.  Friday afternoons, 1/27 thru 3/10

Canine Good Citizen Class
This course will prepare students and their dogs to take the AKC Canine Good Citizen Test (CGC), which will be given at the last class. The purpose of this class is to teach the dog to be a respected member of the human community. Exercises include walking calmly in a crowd, being comfortable meeting strangers and other dogs. No orientation.  Dogs should be brought to the first class.
