Teach your dog who takes who for a walk

Posted Posted July 10, 2017

Plymouth School District Community Education & Recreation is offering a second session of Dog Obedience this summer.

Participants will learn basic commands such as how to teach a dog to sit, stay, and come when called, as well as advice on establishing who takes who for a walk and other safety tips.

Bring a slip collar and a 6-foot leash. Dogs should be at least 3 months old. Handlers ages 11 to 15 must be accompanied by an adult.

Class will meet with instructor Pat Chickowski from 6 to 7 p.m. Wednesdays from Aug. 2 to Sept. 13 in the northeast lot at Plymouth High School, 125 Highland Ave. Fee is $38 ($30 for Generations members and district residents ages 62 and up) until July 21, then $48.

There’s also still room in the following:

  • Girls Volleyball Camp: PHS coaches and players will teach game fundamentals with drills and game play to girls entering grades 6 through 9. Camp will run July 17 to 20, with grades 6-8 from noon to 1:30 p.m. and grade 9 from 2 to 4 p.m. Fee, which includes a T-shirt, is $60 for grades 6-8 and $85 for grade 9.
  • Summer Playgroup: Families with children of all ages are invited to enjoy our parks and commune with nature as well as other families at this parent-supervised free play. This new initiative will run from 9:30 to 11 a.m. Fridays at a rotating park each week: first Friday of the month at Rotary Park, second Friday at City Park, third Friday at Lone Oak, and fourth Friday at Meyer Park. Shelters will be open in the parks that have them.
