Many of the same health problems that affect us, including hearing loss, also affect our pets. Fortunately, most pets adapt very well to the disability with a little help from their owners.View Article

Let's go for a walk!
Need a little help getting your pooch in sync with your step? Dogs sit, lie down and run to each other as part of their natural behavior. When was the last time you saw a dog leading another dog around on a lead? However . . . your dog’s daily walks are important times for the dog to get out and enjoy the neighborhood and it is important to teach your dog to enjoy walking on lead—even if you live in an area where your dog doesn’t generally go on lead walks. Leash manners are simply to keep your dog from pulling your arm out of its socket—not to have your dog in a perfect “heel” all the time. Start now and life will be easier later.
Together with The Humane Society of Jefferson County, we are sponsoring a free training session for people and their dogs.
In about half an hour, you and your dog can complete a series of activities that will help curb challenging leash behavior. You will also have plenty of time to ask questions of our behavioral trainers, Alli Jerger and Danielle Bartz.
We have one more session planned for 2017!
Date: Saturday, July 8, 2017
Time: 10am-12pm, in 30-minute sessions (please come at 10am, 10:45am, or 11:30am)
Location: Jefferson County Dog Park
RSVP: We'd love to know how many people are planning to attend, so we can set up accordingly. Please contact the shelter by phone at 920-674-2048, or email firstname.lastname@example.org, or sign up on the HSJC Facebook page. See you there!
This event is co-sponsored by the Lake Mills Veterinary Clinic and the Humane Society of Jefferson County.
The session is free, but please consider bringing an item from the shelter's wish list or a cash donation. We know they'll appreciate it!
