The Weekly Wag

Our weekly roundup of events worth barking about.

Friday, January 22
Adding another mouth to feed is always an adjustment. Especially when that mouth is also chewing up the table legs. New-puppy parents can score some relief and support at the Washington Animal Rescue League’s New Dog Guardian Orientation Class. The free session, led by a certified instructor, covers socialization, house, chew, and home-alone training. The course is for people only and runs from 6 to 7 at the league (71 Oglethorpe St., NW). E-mail to RSVP.

Saturday, January 23
Animal education continues at the Animal Welfare League of Arlington (2650 S. Arlington Mill Dr., Arlington) with a seminar by dog trainer and KissAble Canine owner Lisa Colon Tudor. The workshop, KissAble Puppy Intensive: A Crash Course in Puppy Rearing Essentials, includes topics such as house-training, prevention of unwanted behaviors, puppy games, and socialization. The event starts at 10 and costs $45. E-mail to register.

The Big Bad Woof (117 Carroll St., NW; 202-291-2404) will host an adoption event from noon to 2.
