Adult & Family Activities Dog Obedience Training Classes Sponsored by Lakes Area Recreation Lakes Area Recreation Gym Lifetime learning experiences are as important for the canine family members as for the human members. Three experienced volunteers provide some of this continuing education for the canine family members (and their owner/trainers) by conducting a series of dog obedience training classes. Each series of classes runs for six consecutive weeks, and each weekly session has a separate kindergarten class for puppies and another class for adult dogs. Only “gentle and reward” training methods are used. The curriculum will include socialization, basic obedience, and when appropriate, behavior problems will be addressed. The final fifteen minutes of the hour-long classes include a “recess” period, during which the dogs and the trainers will develop confidence by having fun on the agility course, consisting of hurdles, ramps, tunnels, and a teeter-totter. The classes will take place in the Lakes Area Recreation gymnasium at 720 Fillmore Street. If you have any questions, please call Donna Rae Pugh at (320) 762-8980 or Lakes Area Recreation at (320) 762-2868. Class # 4650.101 4651.101 4652.201 4653.201 4654.301

Rally Dog Obedience LAR Auxiliary Gym

Preparing to Volunteer With Dogs LAR Auxiliary Gym

Instructor: Holly Bushard

Instructor: Holly Bushard

If you love training your dog and have already accomplished basic pet manners, Rally Obedience is the class for you! Rally obedience picks up where basic obedience leaves off. Rally obedience takes teams through a constructed course of obedience moves such as sitting, laying down, turning, and halting. No experience is necessary! This class will be informal and fun and is intended for people who have never tried anything like this before. All that is required is a sense of humor and a love of dogs. By the end of the class, dogs will be more focused on their handlers, better on a leash, and able to perform a wide series of commands. Training for rally obedience requires very little space, making it an ideal hobby for keeping you and your dog challenged and engaged through the upcoming winter months. If you have any questions, please call Holly at 320-491-3671. Equipment required: A dog, a collar, and a leash!

If you love people and have a friendly and confident dog, therapy dog work might be right for you! Therapy dogs visit people in a variety of settings such as nursing homes, schools, and hospitals. The goal of the team is to bring comfort and joy to animal lovers who are separated from their pets. This class is designed to help owners decide if their dogs are appropriate for volunteering and to give them the skills needed to make sure that their visits are safe and rewarding. Basic obedience skills and a gentle dog are all that you need to get started. We will practice the obedience skills that are needed to volunteer and talk about the various therapy dog organizations that participants can test with and join. Volunteering with your dog can be one of the most rewarding things you can do together. If you have ever been curious about the process, please consider joining us to learn more!

GREAT IDEAS! Book your next birthday party or family event at the Lakes Area Gymnastics Center. $95 includes 1 hour of instructor led games/activities and 1 hour in the birthday party room. Looking for a field trip for your daycare, preschool or church group? We are the place for you! Please call 219-9724 to set up a time to have some fun! Are you an adrenaline junky? Working on new stunts for your extreme sport? Call Lakes Area Gymnastics at 219-9724 to reserve a time to come in and use our spring floor, air-track, above ground pit AND in ground foam pit to practice and perfect stunts, tricks and skills.

A short note to parents about your child’s class placement: It is very important to understand that all children acquire skills at different rates. Some children find it easy, while others take longer to make their bodies respond to what their brain is trying to tell them. Others may need to work on strength and flexibility. It should be expected that a child would take the same level class for about one year! A child should not feel pressured to move too quickly through the classes, especially if they are enjoying it! A minimum of four participants are required to hold a class. 21
