  • The Waynesville Shelter plans to offer obedience classes for dogs this fall.
    Animal Control officer Kelley Surma said at Thursday's Waynesville City Council Meeting that the shelter is planning on offering a training program in September that will be open to the public. The classes will teach dog owners how to use commands that will improve the dog's behavior in social settings and in the home. 
    “We have found that most dogs in the shelter were left behind because of behavioral issues,” Surma said. 
    According to Waynesville Shelter's Facebook page, the training program will be called "Paw and Order." The shelter will be taking the first 10 people that come to the shelter, fill out their paperwork, provide proof of current vaccines, and pay for the class. This is on a first come first serve basis. There will be no reservations of spots.
    When: Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday beginning September 2, 2014 and will end September 19, 2014.
    Time: 1st class 6:00 pm to 7:00pm. 2nd class 7:15 pm to 8:15 pm
    Where: Waynesville City Park. Pavilion 3. Your trainer will meet you there.
    There will be five dogs to a class. The cost of the class will be $30.00 for a dog adopted from the Waynesville Animal Shelter and $50.00 for all other dogs. This includes nine sessions over three weeks.
    At the end of your class you and your pet will receive a certificate of completion.
    If you have any questions, contact the Waynesville Animal Shelter at 573-774-6509.
