Doggie Manners

Does your pooch steal your slippers? Roll around on the furniture as if it were something deliciously stinky? Does he bark incessantly, lick too much, pull on the leash, play bite, jump on people, and/or urinate in the house? Just because your canine is cute as can be doesn’t mean you have to endure misbehavior. Fortunately S.B. Parks & Recreation offers ongoing courses that teach you-I mean, your dog-how to curb those aforementioned behavior problems. The first class is an hour and a half, while following classes are one hour. The classes are limited to 18 dogs. Make sure you bring a leash, because all training is done on lead. For more info, call 962-2834 or 897-2519. For class dates and times, visit
