Dog Obedience (Spring 2021)

The Southington Recreation Department is sponsoring beginner and intermediate level dog obedience classes. There are no residency requirements to participate. Classes will be taught by Kevin and/or Lindzay Medeiros.

Classes will be held at Stay N Play Pets, 420 North Main Street, Southington.

Participants will receive instructions in obedience training including sit, stay, come, heel, and other commands. Bring your dog, a training collar, and a 6-foot lead to class.

NOTE: This program is not suitable for dogs who exhibit aggressive behaviors towards people or other dogs; dogs with issues of incessant barking are also prohibited.
