Dog Obedience & Grooming Classes Orientation: Monday, March 11th, 6:30 pm Cornell Cooperative Extension, Middletown. Mandatory attendance for all beginners (NO DOGS).
The first Monday class (NO DOGS) will be March 18th at the CCEOC office in Middletown, NY. 2nd Class (March 25th) will be held at Highpoint K9, Mt. Hope Road. Thereafter, classes will be held at the Education Center & 4-H Park in Otisville.
Registration for Dog Obedience is required before March 8th, but classes fill up quickly – on a first come, first served basis.
IMPORTANT NOTE: These classes are designed as a youth development experience for children, not as a place just to get your dog trained. Dogs need to be controlled by your child, i.e., a 130 lb. aggressive dog and a 60 lb. kid will probably not work out. Remember – the child needs to do the work, not the parent, to make this the great experience it can be.
$15 for dog program + $15 for non-4-H members
