Join us at Ijams Nature Center the last Saturday of every month to learn how to stay safe around dogs and prevent dog bites. This class is free for children and parents to attend. We are excited to bust some common myths about dog behavior. Did you know a wagging tail doesn’t always mean a happy, friendly dog? We will be discussing the following topics and will incorporate a game with special prizes.
