On Saturday, May 5 the Heigl Foundation launched the "Learn To Be A Best Friend" initiative, a program that provides free dog obedience training at Hollydale Park in South Gate, Los Angeles. The goal of the program, which is run in conjunction with the Downey Shelter, is to teach responsible pet ownership and basic commands. We were there to film the dogs being put through their paces as they took part in the training exercises with their owners!
The courses will be run on a regular basis on select Saturdays beginning at 10am and last for approximately one hour. Members of the public who would like their pet to participate in the program simply need to call 323-798-4101 to register. Free spay/neuter surgeries will also be provided for any unaltered dog attending the class through a local participating vet clinic. We also throw in a little goodie bag of treats for the pups and a training guide.
So what are you waiting for? Give us a call. Details of the scheduled class dates are listed below. Hope to see you in two weeks time!
