Teaching all dogs new tricks

Janet Goodwins dogs Meg and Finn are looking forward to going back to the Wollongbar Dog Obedience School.

After years of walking through parks dodging piles of smelly doggy doo, Janet Goodwin decided to take matters into her own hands and help dogs, and their owners, clean up their act.

Janet has been running the Wollongbar Dog Obedience School for the past six years, providing simple, helpful training so people and their pets can live harmoniously at home and in the community.

Classes begin again on Sunday, February 4, and Janet is inviting anyone with puppy problems to bring their pooch for some gentle guidance.

We cover all the basics from sit, stay and heel right through to more advanced training for timid or bad-tempered dogs, said Janet. Our aim is to ensure all dogs are fully socialised, and every cent we raise goes to Northern Rivers Animal Services to care for those dogs who arent lucky enough to have a loving home.

Classes will be held every Sunday from February 4 at Hill Park Oval in Wollongbar at 5pm. Janet will also run classes every Tuesday night from February 20 at the Dunoon Sports Club, starting at 6pm.

The cost is only $5 and dogs of any age and breed are welcome. Simply turn up (with your dog properly leashed) or for more information phone Janet on 6628 2910.
