Autumn needs a forever home

Autumn needs a forever home

Autumn, a 9 month-old Jack Russell/Beagle mix would love a home of her own before the new year. As you can see, she's a happy, playful girl and she loves people and other dogs. She had a great time in the dog park yesterday. She's VERY active and would do best in a home without valuable heirlooms! She has the typical Jack Russell energy which includes jumping in the air and using your legs as a spring board. Come by the shelter and meet this sweet girl!

 

We open every day from 11-5, and you can find us at 14600 Colonel Glenn Road in Little Rock

Local dog trainers to host free "Yappy Hour" for problem dog behavior, Q&A

Local dog trainers to host free "Yappy Hour" for problem dog behavior, Q&A

SHERWOOD, Ark (YH) - Although we love our four-legged family members, sometimes their behavior can be a menace. From digging up the backyard to nonstop barking to jumping and soiling our favorite clothes, unwanted dog behavior is all-too-common.

Unfortunately, there aren't many resources for the average dog owner to use to stop this behavior. So See Spot Sit Dog Training of Central Arkansas is hosting a free "Yappy Hour" to discuss solutions to the many common dog behavior problems like barking, digging, jumping, escaping and other bad behavior.

The seminar will also include a question and answer session for specific questions you may have about your dog's behavior.

Yappy Hour will be held Tuesday, November 12, 2013, at 6:30 p.m. at Sherwood Forest at 1111 W Maryland Ave., Sherwood, AR 72120. Attendees do NOT have to be Sherwood residents to attend.

Free refreshments will also be provided.
