Sure, the puppy looked cute with its red-ribbon collar under the tree, but now what? New dog owners are in luck with the Washington Animal Rescue League’s Preparatory Class for New Dog Guardians at its headquarters (71 Oglethorpe St., NW; 202-726-2556). The league’s certified trainer will lead this free course that covers housetraining, chewing, socialization, and more. Dogs won’t be allowed at the session. 6 PM. E-mail training@warl.org to RSVP.

Saturday, January 9
The Greyhound Welfare League will be on hand at Nature’s Nibbles (2601 Mount Vernon Ave., Alexandria; 703-931-5241) for a meet-and-greet event from 11 to 1. Greyhound foster dogs will be in attendance alongside Greyhound Welfare volunteers, who’ll answer questions. The event is free.

Sunday, January 10
Your new best friend may be waiting for you at the Dog Shop (1625 Wisconsin Ave., NW; 202-337-3647). Lucky Dog Animal Rescue and its most eligible canines will host an adoption event here from noon to 2.

There’s a lot more to greyhounds than their racing record. Find out what else the dogs have to offer at another meet-and-greet hosted by the Greyhound Welfare League at Mighty Healthy Pet (9815 Rhode Island Ave., College Park; 301-345-5544). Volunteers will introduce greyhound foster dogs and answer questions from 11 to 1.
