Missionary to address Kenai Aglow

After spending a year in Lithuania, missionary Janet Aslin will speak Monday evening to Kenai Aglow at 7 p.m. at The Salvation Army Chapel in Kenai.

A resident of Palmer, Aslin has been involved in Aglow since 1997. She will speak about her adventures in learning while teaching at a university in Lithuania.

New dog classes set to start

The Kenai Kennel Club is offering classes at its facility in the C Plaza in Kenai. Classes include puppy kindergarten, basic, intermediate and advance obedience and junior handling.

KKC is planning two new classes. The Canine Good Citizen program consists of a six-week class, where students take their dogs through a series of situations designed to teach the dog to be under control, such as in a crowd of people and around other dogs. A test is given at the end of the session. Those who pass may receive a certificate from the American Kennel Club, which sponsors the program. The class will start Jan. 9.

AKC is offering a new venue in 2005. Rally was created to promote a positive relationship between a dog and owner. The dog and handler follow a series of signs, each one asking the dog to demonstrate a maneuver, such as a circle or weaving through cones. KKC will start a rally class Friday. Handlers must be able to maintain the dog on their left side.

To find out more or to sign up for classes, call KKC at 335-2552.
