Barbara Walmer, department head of behaviour at CHS, is coordinating recall training sessions at Sue Higgins Park on July 25 and Falconridge Park on October 27 to teach and demonstrate tips and techniques with Calgary dog owners and their dogs.
July 25: There will be four 45-minute sessions starting at 10:00 a.m., 11:30 a.m., 1:00 p.m. and 2:30 p.m. There are only 12 spots available per session (no drop-ins are accepted) so please apply online to attend before July 21. Or you can also call 311. A draw will be held on July 22.
These free events are offered as part of our Off-leash Ambassador program, which is a community-based program providing a volunteer-led approach to promote and educate people about responsible pet ownership and ensure safety in off-leash areas.
Good animal behaviour requires a commitment to building a strong relationship between pet and owner. We are committed to working with and supporting Calgarians on responsible pet ownership.
