Dog training tips offered at library

Is your dog a little hard to handle, or overly enthusiastic? Fort Bend County Libraries’ Mamie George Branch Library, 320 Dulles Avenue in Stafford, will present a special program, “Dog Training 101,” on Monday, August 26, beginning at 6:00 pm. Dog trainer Kate Guynn will provide tips on basic canine care and on training methods using the positive-rewards method.

Guynn will provide an overview of the practice of using rewards to train dogs to behave appropriately. She will show how the positive-reward dog-training technique can be used to address behavioral problems like chewing and jumping and for other issues such as potty training and heeling. Learn how these techniques can also be used to teach a dog to sit and lie down upon command.

Guynn has been training dogs using the positive-rewards technique for three years, and has more than 90 hours of training workshops and research on the most effective methods of training a dog.

This instructional program is free and open to the public.  For more information, please call the branch library at 281-238-2880 or the library’s Public Information Office at 281-341-2677.
