Want to teach your dog some new tricks? Or more importantly, good manners. The Sedalia Kennel Club can help.

They're offering the class Beginning Pet Manners, for dogs and their owners, beginning on Tuesday, March 1 at 6:00 PM or 7:00 PM CST.

The class will teach walking on a leash. Basic commands like sit, down, and stay. General dog care. And basic pet manners like coming when called, and not jumping on people. Additionally, information will be shared on grooming, health, best dog food choices, emergency vet care, house training, and crate training.

The cost is $65 dollars and will meet on Tuesdays from March 1, through April 5 at Mutts, Manners, and More. 901 N. Main Street in Knob Noster.

Each class is limited to eight dogs and their handler, and preference is given to pet owners who have adopted from the Sedalia Animal Shelter prior to Monday, February 14. After that, the class is open to the general public.

If you've recently rescued a dog or adopted a puppy, the $65 might be the best investment you can make in your family. Leash pulling, constant jumping up on people, not coming when called are all problems that can make dog ownership tough. So why not try to get your dog on the road to good habits?

Sedalia native Sara Steele will be teaching the class. She has recently become a CGC Evaluator and is a member of the Sedalia Kennel Club and Be A Good Dog University. She has a variety of pets including a border collie who will be attending class with her regularly.

Classes are first come first served. And payment is required before you will enrolled in the class. To find out more or to register call Garnetta at 660-827-7003. Dogs will need a six-foot leash and a properly fitting training collar. More information on the class can be found here.
