For Hometown News

INDIAN RIVER COUNTY - The Humane Society of Vero Beach and Indian River County will host a puppy and dog training class.

Registration for August classes will run through Aug. 17. The cost for six weeks of training is $40, with all registration fees directly benefiting the animals of Indian River County. Registration will be held at the Humane Society, located at 6230 77th St, Vero Beach.

The Humane Society's six-week dog training programs have been designed to accommodate most any schedule. Wednesday morning classes begin on Aug. 15 and are held from 11a.m.-noon, Thursday evening classes commence on Aug. 16 and are scheduled from 7-8 p.m. and Saturday afternoon classes start on Aug. 18, and will be conducted from 1-2 p.m.

Classes teach basic commands such as "sit," "down" and "stay." Pet parents will also learn how to correct bad habits such as leash pulling, door bolting and jumping. Classes use motivational training approaches that are not food reliant.

Classes are taught by Connie Ellis, HSVBIRC pet behavior coordinator and certified by the National Association of Dog Obedience Instructors. Class size is limited and payment may be made at the Humane Society by check or cash. Choice of class is on a first come, first serve basis.

For more information, contact Ms. Ellis at (772) 388-3331, Ext. 19.
