The Parks and Recreation Department is offering First Class Dog Training classes held by Hector Hernandez. Hernandez is a former law enforcement officer, police K-9 instructor and professional dog trainer for all breed groups. Hernandez led the second day of basic obedience training, having the dogs learn with verbal commands to heel, sit and stay. Hernandez had owners, as they arrive, put special training collars on their dogs. After, he had the owners walk their dogs only on their left side.
