If you just got a new dog or are considering getting one, you may be thinking, “What now?” Make plans to attend the first free workshop of 2020 sponsored by the Humane Society of Jefferson County featuring Lake Mills Veterinary Clinic behaviorist, Mittsy Voiles. Attendees will learn what to expect in the first days, weeks, and months of new dog ownership to get everyone off to a great start. Topics include socialization, exercise, nutrition, manners, potty training, and how to avoid common mistakes that may trigger fearful or defensive aggression. This workshop is for humans only (no dogs please) and will take place on Monday, January 13 at 6:00 p.m. in the Community Education Room at the Humane Society, located at W6127 Kiesling Road, between Jefferson and Fort Atkinson. This workshop is free, but donations are greatly appreciated. Please call the shelter at 920-674-2048 to register.
