Wood County Humane Society offering dog training classes

Press Staff Writer

        The Wood County Humane Society offers dog training classes to the public.
        To date, 100 families have participated in the training program, which is now in its fourth year. April McCurdy, a certified professional dog trainer with knowledge and skills assessed certification (CPDT-KSA), conducts training through positive reinforcement. Classes are held at the Wood County Humane Society, 801 Van Camp Rd., by appointment. Trainings last up to one hour per week for four weeks, priced at $120.
        Classes are offered for varying skill levels to benefit the dog’s ability and knowledge. Skills being taught range from the basics, such as sit and stay, to more advanced tricks, such as high five and roll over.
        Participants will be provided with suggested items to bring to help make the session a successful experience for both the dog and owner. For more information contact the Wood County Humane Society at 419-352-7339 or wchsapril@gmail.com.
        The Wood County Humane Society is a private, non-profit, managed admission shelter providing care for homeless and abused or neglected pets. The organization receives no funding from national humane organizations for daily operations, instead relying on earned revenue and individual donors and businesses to fund programs such as Humane Investigations, Safe Pets, food assistance programs, low-cost spay/neuter opportunities, and educational presentations.
        The WCHS provides care for over a thousand animals each year – from dogs and cats, to the occasional pocket pet or farm animal. All animals admitted into the adoption program are housed and cared for as long as it takes to find their adoptive home.
