Bring out the best in your dog! Our Dog Obedience Training Classes begin at the end beginning of July and run for seven weeks. The class will cover focus, sit, down, stay, stand, walking on a loose leash, heel, and recall. Your dog must be at least five months old with a current rabies vaccination. Cost is $90 if you pre-register. If you wait until the first day of class to register, you'll pay $10 more. The class fee includes a Martingale training collar and a graduation certificate. We highly encourage pre-registration because each session is limited to 10 participants. There are two sessions:

Please bring the following items to your first class:
  • A copy of your dog's current shot records (must have an up-to-date rabies vaccination).
  • Treats for your dog.
  • Phone number you can be reached at in the evenings in case we need to cancel class due to bad weather.
Classes will be taught by Gary Harrington, an Animal Behavior College Certified Dog Trainer and AKC Canine Good Citizen Evaluator. Gary also is certified in Pet First Aid through the American Red Cross. This will be his ninth year teaching at the Cedar Valley Humane Society. All proceeds benefit homeless animals at the Cedar Valley Humane Society. For more information, contact Stephanie Schmitz at (319) 362-6288 or stephanie.schmitz@cvhumane.org.

To pre-register, e-mail stephanie.schmitz@cvhumane.org. Please turn in your application and pre-register at least three days in advance so we know how many information packets to bring.

No outside food is allowed, but you may purchase something to eat at the Hy-Vee and bring it into the conference room. (Anything from an iced tea to a full evening meal!)

Get out the Give on #GivingTuesday

in 149 days and 15:57 hours.

Location:
Starts: December 1, 2015 @ 12:01 am
Ends: December 2, 2015 @ 12:01 am

First there was Black Friday... then Cyber Monday... now #GivingTuesday! For the third year, we're an official partner of #GivingTuesday, and we're helping to spread the word to "get out the give."

#GivingTuesday is a movement to create a national day of giving at the start of the annual holiday season. It celebrates and encourages charitable activities that support non-profit organizations. The idea is to make #GivingTuesday a part of our collective experience, much in the way that Black Friday and Cyber Monday became part of the cultural consciousness.

The first Tuesday after Thanksgiving has been designated as #GivingTuesday. This year, #GivingTuesday is December 1. We encourage you to make a meaningful contribution in any way you wish.

If you would like to do a donation drive, please check out our wish list! Of course, monetary donations are always welcome.

The success of #GivingTuesday as a national movement depends on all of us! We encourage everyone to be involved with spreading the word and participating. Families and individuals are encouraged to be generous in whatever ways matter to them.
