Dog training
Friday from 7 to 9 p.m., Peaceable Paws, at 17816 Spielman Road in Fairplay, will host an evening of canine games at its training center.

If your dog can wag its tail, sit or lie down on verbal cue or hand signal, speak, find a treat, stay, jump off the ground, or do some of the dozens more behaviors on the beginner, intermediate and advanced “My Dog Can Do That” cards, dog owners and their dogs can play this game. And they don’t have to do them all — just some of them.

It costs $10 per dog (half of the proceeds are donated to the Humane Society of Washington County).
