7. MY DOGS PLACE SUMMER WATER SPORTS CLASSES, LEDYARD, CONN.
Forget about swimming with the fishes. Swim with your dog at a freshwater lake in Ledyard. My Dogs Place, out of Mystic and Niantic, offers a seven-week class for puppies and adult dogs and their owners or handlers. According to the brochure, building a confident, cooperative water companion is the primary goal of this class. You will learn to swim together as a team and pick up some basic retrieving skills. Basic obedience and leash walking are required. A canine lifejacket is strongly recommended, a human one required.
860-572-7755 (Mystic) and 860-691-0078 (Niantic), mydogsplace.com. Seven-week sessions, one in June, one in July, $140.
