Let’s Go for a Walk!

August 11, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm


Need a little help getting your pooch in sync with your step? Dogs sit, lie down and run to each other as part of their natural behavior. When was the last time you saw a dog leading another dog around on a lead? However . . . your dog’s daily walks are important times for the dog to get out and enjoy the neighborhood and it is important to teach your dog to enjoy walking on lead—even if you live in an area where your dog doesn’t generally go on lead walks. Leash manners are simply to keep your dog from pulling your arm out of its socket—not to have your dog in a perfect “heel” all the time. Start now and life will be easier later.

The workshop will be held in the shelter’s outdoor play yard on Saturday, August 11th, with half hour sessions starting at 10:00 am, 10:30 am, 11:00 am, and 11:30 am. In the case of inclement weather, the workshop will move inside to the shelter’s Community Education Room.

Dogs must be dog and people friendly, current on vaccinations, and leashed with a 4′-6′ non-retractable leash.

The workshop is free, but monetary donations or items from the shelter’s wish list are greatly appreciated!

We’d love to know how many people are planning to attend so we can set up the room accordingly. Please contact
the shelter by phone at 920-674-2048 or respond to the Facebook event to let us know what session you’re planning on attending!

This workshop is sponsored by Pet Partners, a partnership between the Lake Mills Veterinary Clinic and the
Humane Society of Jefferson County.
