July 7 at 9 a.m. Puppy Personality: Puppies having had their second round of shots for more than one week are welcome. Proof of vaccines required. No younger than 10 weeks. Puppies will be individually evaluated so owners are ready for what’s to come.
July 9 at 10 a.m. Housebreaking: Stop stressing and get simple techniques to put an end to your dog’s accidents.
July 9 at 11 a.m. Meet the Trainer: Questions answered on what to expect, what methods are used and what a dog and owner will achieve from training. Information will also be provided on upcoming training classes.
July 16 at 10 a.m. Dog Nutrition: Get the facts on what dogs should be eating. Proper nutrition can prevent skin and food allergies, obesity, unpleasant odor and other health concerns.

These one-hour workshops will be held at the Foothills Humane Society, located at 989 Little Mountain Road in Columbus. No enrollment is required; however, proof of current vaccines is required. For more information, call the shelter at 828-863-4444.
