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.

MERIDIAN TOWNSHIP- In a three-day basic dog obedience course that began Oct. 7, trainer Hector Hernandez showed owners how to have their pets heel, sit and stay. “The way your dogs came in, I think that they all need the training,” said Hernandez. “The biggest thing I want to teach you is the heel. The heel sets the tone for the whole training.”

Hernandez offers a variety of obedience classes.
