Shelter offers manners class for dogs

The Henderson County Animal Services Center and the Obedience Club of Asheville will offer free good-manners tests and training tips to dog owners as part of Canine Good Citizen Day on Saturday, Sept. 20, at the Henderson County Animal Services Center, 828 Stoney Mountain Road.


"We're shining the spotlight on our dog behavior clinic in September teaching good manners for dogs in a variety of social settings," Andy Unguris, community outreach coordinator at Henderson County Animal Services Center, said in a news release. "Our shelter staff and experienced training volunteers will be on hand to work with dog owners who wish to participate in the Canine Good Citizen and Advanced Canine Good Citizen tests. The tests themselves will be administered by American Kennel Club approved evaluators."
In addition to the monthly free behavioral consultations provided at the shelter on Saturdays, clinics are available 1-2 p.m. Wednesdays. Call 697-4723 for details.
