Kathy Forthman of Polite Pooches in Forest Hill gave a positive dog training and dog body language workshop to the dog volunteers at Luna's House Animal Care and Education Center in Edgewood on April 14.

Topics covered included benefits of positive dog training, teaching basic manners, safe handling, loose leash walking and identifying dog body language.

All of these topics were beneficial in helping the volunteers work with the rescued dogs to make them more adoptable. The volunteers expend a lot of time and effort in ensuring the rescued dogs are provided with the highest quality of care while at Luna's House. The volunteers try to match the dogs with a great home for the dog's lifestyle and also provide follow-up guidance and support for each dog that has been adopted.
