Would you like to learn more about your dog or cat? The Humane Society of Jefferson County may be offering an educational session for you! Events are listed online at https://hsjc-wis.com/events/. Be sure to pay attention to whether registration in advance is requested.
On Monday, July 22, at 6 p.m. at the shelter (W6127 Kiesling Rd Jefferson, WI 53549) is the free hour-long session “What is my cat saying?”, sponsored by Pet Partners. This session is only for humans, so leave kitty at home. In August there are two sessions for dog owners, one on what to expect with a new dog, and the other on what to do about your dog’s destructive behaviors when you’re gone.
Andersen Library may have additional resources if you’d like to learn more, including the books Pets, people, and pragmatism (full text online via ProQuest Ebook Central; preview of some text via Google Books), The domestic dog: Its evolution, behavior and interactions with people (3rd-floor Main Collection, SF433 .D66 2017), and Cat culture: The social world of a cat shelter (full text online via ProQuest Ebook Central; preview some text via Google Books).
