New Program Allows Kids To Train Shelter Dogs In Riverside

RIVERSIDE (CBSLA.com) — Summer is going to the dogs. At least in Riverside County.

Children can now spend a week learning to train shelter dogs at the Riverside County Animal Shelter. After four days of instruction and practice, children and dogs compete in Doggie Olympics.

The new program, which started this year as a way to give children an instructive and fun alternative during spring vacation, will also be available this summer.

Dalton Miller, 12, says he’s going to implement some of what he’s learned at home.

“I’ve learned that hot dogs are great for luring dogs to do whatever you want them to, so that’s great because I have three dogs of my own,” he said.

For adoptions and more information on the kids’ camp, visit the Riverside County Department of Animal Services‘ Web site, which will soon be taking sign-ups for the 2013 summer program.
