Dog Etiquette

Monday, April 21, 2008

Western iowa Tech in Cherokee recently offered their first-ever class course in Dog Etiquette. The 4-hour course was instructed by long-time dog lover/groomer/boarder Val Cedar, owner of "Bow-Wow Boutique," and was attended by twelve area canines and their human friends.

Class members practiced "loose leash walking," and the commands of "sit," "stay.""take it," and "leave it" in the large auditorium at the WIT Conference Center.
