Dog Obedience Class

obedient_dogBe your dog’s best friend………Take him to dog class!

Once again, the Black Point Dog Owners Group is offering dog obedience classes at the clubhouse on Saturday mornings at 9AM beginning July 12th and running for 6 weeks. Plans include good neighbor behavior, dog control and good manners. This will help everyone in the beach area enjoy their summer. You and your dog are welcome to join and have some canine fun.

Please contact Sue Chodorov at (860) 739-3182,  or Jane McLane at (860) 739-5167. The cost is $60.00 and will be donated to the Cahill Black Point Education Fund or the Black Point Recreation Fund at your discretion.

You will need a 6-foot leash and collar and a certificate from your vet showing that your dog’s vaccinations are up to date.

If you are interested in taking this class, please contact Sue or Jane so we can save you a spot and not spend class time registering everyone.

A reminder; please read the Black Point Rules. Your dog must be on a leash when off your property. Your dog is not permitted on any of the beaches, rights of way or piers during the summer. Your dog should not be a threat or nuisance to anyone.
