Four on the Floor

Is your dog gravity-challenged? Come learn how to teach "four on the floor".

Dogs jump on people to get attention and as a form of greeting. Although they may mean well, dogs can knock over small children, tear clothing, and rip skin in their enthusiasm. Many commonly-used techniques being used to discourage a dog from jumping up often make the problem worse, hurt the dog, or put a person in danger.

In collaboration with the Humane Society of Jefferson County, we are sponsoring a free workshop for people and their dogs.

In about half an hour, you and your dog can complete a series of five activities that will help curb jumping-up, and teach polite greeting behavior.

Where: Humane Society of Jefferson County, W6127 Kiesling Rd, Jefferson, WI

When: Saturday, 10 February, 2018, 10am-12pm (four half-hour sessions)

Space is limited to 10 dogs per session; sessions start at 10, 10:30, 11, and 11:30am

Please RSVP by calling the Humane Society at 920-674-2048, or clicking "Going" on the Facebook page event. This helps us plan ahead! Thanks!

This event is free, but please consider bringing an item from the shelter's wish list, or a cash donation. Thank you!
