CORPUS CHRISTI - Families who adopted a dog from Corpus Christi Animal Control can now receive free obedience classes. It's part of a new initiative handled by the organization people assisting Animal Control.
Today four dog owners showed up at Animal Control on Holly to take advantage of the training but organizers hope when more people hear about this they'll also attend. These sessions will be held once a month and are for dogs one year or older. It's for anyone who adopted from the facility in hopes it will help to keep the stray population down.
"We want to encourage people to keep their animals and if animals are trained and they have good behavior skills then they're more likely to keep them in their home as a family member," said President Cheryl Martinez.
