New ‘K9 First Aid and Trail Safety’ class coming to Marquette County
The class teaches basic care if your dog becomes injured when hiking or running.
MARQUETTE, Mich. (WLUC) - A new training class to keep you and your furry companion safe when exploring will start next month in Marquette.
Dogs Beyond the Fence, a dog training facility, is hosting a ‘K9 First Aid and Trail Safety’ class starting in June.
The two-hour long class teaches basic care if your dog becomes injured when hiking or running, including how to wrap a foot or ear.
It’s $50 to sign up. The first class will be at the Peter White Public Library in Marquette, starting June 19th from 11a.m. to 1p.m.
After that, classes will run bi-weekly for the rest of the year.
“Everybody loves dogs,” says Dogs Beyond the Fence Owner Naomi Noordyk-Pirrala. “Most of the people up here have a dog, being in a rural community in a beautiful area. I think the biggest thing that I want people to take away from the class is learning how to do simple things to keep you and your dog safe on the trails you love.”
Dogs Beyond the Fence also offers a Family Dog and Good Dog class starting in June.
