Get tips on dog training 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, November 18, 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 promote good dog behavior, such as to come when called, to walk on a loose leash, and to heel. Learn how these techniques can also be used to teach successful crate-training.

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. This is not a hands-on program, and animals are not permitted; only service dogs will be allowed entry.

For more information, please call the branch library at 281-238-2880 or the library’s Public Information Office at 281-341-2677.
