Basic Dog Obedience training is the very best thing you can do for the relationship with your dog because it helps to establish your dog's place in the world and distinguish right from wrong.

Railsplitter Veterinary Wellness Center is teaming up with the Lincoln Park District and Mike Bieser to help teach basic training techniques such as leading on a leash and the commands to heel, sit and stay. Bieser is the owner of the Canine Training Institute and has trained police dogs for a number of years.

Handlers must be a minimum of 8 years of age. Proof of vaccination by a licensed veterinarian must be provided before classes start. Vaccination requirements are as follows:

  • Less than 4 months of age -- Distemper-Parvo (DA2PPv), Bordetella (kennel cough)

  • Over 4 months of age -- Distemper-Parvo (DA2PPv), Bordetella (kennel cough), rabies.
