TIPP CITY — Tipp Monroe Community Services is offering a six-week interactive dog training class for dogs 4 months to adult. The classes begin Feb. 9 from 7:30-8:15 p.m. The classes will be held at the TIPP Center located at 855 N. Third St., Tipp City. The cost is $108 for residents and $110 for nonresidents. There is an additional $20 material fee paid directly to the instructor. For more information, to register, and to pay, visit tmcomservices.org.

According to the instructor, Jenni Lough Watson, “The class will be an interactive learning experience, where owners and their dogs will work together with other members of the dog-owning community to learn the basics of Rally Obedience.” This team-building approach will teach owners and their dogs the key fundamentals of Rally Obedience and how each element can be applied to everyday life.

Watson has founded more than half a dozen companies since 1994, uniquely applying her passion to enable dogs to become contributing members of society. She is a certified canine Good Citizen Evaluator for the American Kennel Club. Today, Watson runs Greatdogs LLC, a world-class Medical Alert Mapping Service Dog Program that selects, trains and matches fully trained service dogs with disabled individuals

On any given day, you can find Watson working and training her group of award-winning collies and standard poodles in downtown Tipp City. For more information, visit the website: greatdogs.com, Facebook: GREATDOGS#greatdogsknow, or Instagram: @greatdogsknow.
