4-H offers dog obedience program


Allen County 4‑H is offering a series of workshops on dog obedience training. The program is open to youth who are in Grades 3-12. Young people can learn how to train their family dog to be more obedient. Youth will learn how to teach their dog to heel on a leash, stand for examination, sit, stay and more. They will also learn about the health, care and grooming of their dog. The dog should be at least 6 months of age.

The meetings will be held 6-7 p.m. Mondays at the Home Loan Bank Building, Allen County Fairgrounds, 2726 Carroll Road, Fort Wayne, beginning in March. The cost of the 16-week program is $70. All participants must preregister, pay fees and complete their paperwork by Feb. 23. Class size is limited.
