Class designed to help keep dogs in line

FORT KENT, Maine — Owners interested in teaching their canine friends to be obedient or who want to spend quality time with them can sign up their dogs for a “K-9 College” course through the Fort Kent Recreation and Parks Department. 

Dogs must be at least 5 months old in order to take part in the course and owners will need to provide proof of their dogs’ vaccinations and bring a choke collar with a 6-foot lead to the classes.

K-9 College begins at 6:15 p.m. on Wednesday, May 24, and will run for six weeks of Wednesdays.

Classes will meet at the Jalbert Park Skating Rink just off Pleasant Street in Fort Kent. The first class will be for humans only and will include registration and fee collection.

The cost of K-9 College is $50 per participant.

Jake Robichaud will be instructing the classes.

For more information or to sign up for the class, call the Fort Kent Recreation and Parks Department at (207) 834-3730 or visit the Fort Kent Municipal Building.
