University Police hosting dog services clinic, training course

The Northwest Advocates for Animal Awareness (NWAAA) at Northwest Missouri State University will offer K-9 basic obedience classes and other dog services, including vaccinations and tags, to all University students and employees this month. 

The one-night dog services clinic is 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. Monday, Nov 26, at the University Police Building, located on West Ninth Street, with parking available east of the building in Lot 22. The clinic, with the Nodaway Veterinary Clinic and the New Nodaway Humane Society, will offer services including rabies and other vaccinations, 2013 city dog tags and micro-chipping. NWAAA members will be on hand to assist dog owners. 

That same night marks the beginning of the obedience classes, sponsored by NWAAA and Amy Mathias of Smitten Pet Sitten. The class, offered in the University Police building, begins at 6:30 p.m. Nov. 26 and runs three more nights (Thursday, Nov. 29; Monday, Dec. 10; and Thursday, Dec 13). Dogs will be tested and certified during the last session. 

The class is being offered first to pit bull owners and remaining openings will be offered to dog owners of other breeds. The course is free to dogs adopted from the local animal shelter.
