The East Central Mississippi Kennel Club will be hosting dog obedience classes starting this week. An orientation session without your furry friends will start Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. at the Frank Cochran Center in Meridian. Starting Thursday, the training sessions begin with puppy kindergarten at 5:45 p.m. for an hour, then followed by a basic adult class then an advanced adult class

"We start them off socializing with people and with other animals, so they'll be a good citizen when they grow up. If you start them young, they do much better," said Sue Sexton, the vice president of the East Central Mississippi Kennel Club

The puppy kindergarten class costs $50, and the basic adult and advanced adult classes will cost $75.
