Published: Tuesday, March 5, 2013 11:25 a.m. CDT

DeKALB – The DeKalb Park District has scheduled the second annual Going to the Dogs Workshop from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Wednesday, March 13. This free family event will introduce a variety of dog programs offered by the DeKalb Park District. Dog owners are invited, without their dogs, for a short visit or the entire event.

Learn about dog obedience classes, tracking, dog massage and canine good citizen programs. Did you know canine good citizen certifications can help reduce some homeowner’s insurance rates? Owners will have the chance to talk to the park district’s trainer, who has more than 30 years of progressive experience and numerous certifications in the dog training field.

Husky Haven and Fresh Start rescue organizations will also attend with animals looking for a forever home. Representatives of the Nutro Company, Cortland Animal Hospital and the Petco Salon will be on hand to answer questions, give advice and provide grooming demonstrations. There will be children’s craft activities, free raffles and door prizes.

The event will be held at the DeKalb Park District Haish Gym facility, 303 S. Ninth St. in DeKalb.

For information, call 815-756-8560. Do not bring pets to the workshop.
