      Free dog training, rabies vaccines in Toledo City Parks

      Free dog training at Jamie Farr Park this Saturday.

      Toledo's PET Bull Project will continue its free dog training sessions in City of Toledo Parks this Saturday. Just bring your furry friend to Jamie Farr Park from 2-4 p.m. to learn basic training commands and receive free rabies vaccinations on a first come, first served basis.

      Started as a group of pet owners and trainers committed to prevent animal cruelty, including dog fighting, PET Bull Project focuses on pit bulls but also encourages responsible pet ownership of all breeds.

      "PET Bull Project stands for Prevention, Education and Training," said Cindy Reinsel, Founder and President of the organization. ??We believe that the best way to change the attitudes toward pit bulls is through education of our youth. Many have been exposed to dog fighting and we use our classes and training to help them understand that animal cruelty is wrong and that there are many joys to responsible pet ownership.??

      PET Bull Project is not a rescue but works in conjunction with many rescue groups. Free training classes will continue to be held monthly through October.
