Kenai

Kennel club hosts events

* The Kenai Kennel Club will hold a Canine Good Citizen class at 6 p.m. July 16 at the club's facility in the Kenai Mall behind Sears on the Kenai Spur Highway in Kenai.

The class is six weeks for $60. A test will be held after the six weeks. The purpose of the test is to ensure the dog can be a respected member of the community because it is trained and conditioned to act mannerly in the home, public places and in the presence of other dogs.

The program is open to all dogs -- purebred and mixed breeds. The test is not a competition and does not require you and your dog to perform with precision.

The program is offered through the American Kennel Club and those who pass may request a certificate from AKC. For more information, call 335-2552 or 283-7515.

* The club also will host its annual agility trial and conformation show July 9 through 11 at Skyview High School.

Events begin at 8 a.m. each day and are generally finished by mid to late afternoon.

Spectators are encouraged to bring their own seating and be prepared for changing weather.
