WINNEMUCCA - The Power Paws 4-H Dog Club will offer a canine good citizen obedience course beginning Sept. 16.
This will be a six-week course with meeting dates set for Sept. 16 , 30, Oct. 7, 21, 28 and Nov. 4. Handlers and dogs will be taught what is needed to pass their CGC test. There will be a strong emphasis on good recall, better known as "coming when called." This is a positive training course and handlers should bring their dog's favorite toys or treats to every class.
All classes will be held on Monday evenings at the extension office at 5:30 p.m. Class size is limited to 15 participants. The registration fee is $35 for the six-week course and includes course materials.
Participants will need to bring their own five or six-foot leash and must provide proof that their dog is current on all vaccinations. The CGC class will be taught by 4-H Leader Judy Henigin. All proceeds go to the Power Paws 4-H Club.
In addition to the Canine Good Citizen course, there will be an agility class that will begin a six week class run on Sept. 17 and run through Oct. 22. The class registration fee will be $35 and this course will be held at an offsite location.
Please contact Judy Henigin for more information on the agility class. If you are interested in registering for either of the courses, or would like more information, contact Judy Henigin at 625-2999 or the Humboldt County Cooperative Extension 4-H office at 623-6304.
