Is your canine friend less than social? Does it bark at other dogs? Does it pull on its leash, taking you with him when he sees something?
This six-week class will help your dog improve. Instructor Sharon Nordrum has been in dog rescue for 38 years with experience working with all types of dogs with all types of personalities. Her class will teach how to control a dog and what signs to look for to stop a reaction before it starts.
