Topics Covered

In our third session of our Dog Talk series, we will explore the following topics:

  1. Different dog breeds, their histories, their temperaments, tendencies, strengths and challenges.
  2. Dog training – following up our discussion of dog breeds, we will investigate how we train a dog, the techniques necessary to raise a well-behaved canine and the many ways to train different breeds.
  3. The history of dogs in our world, their early origins and their development over many centuries, especially in relation to their connection with the human race.
  4. The relationship between people and dogs. What is it? Why do so many Americans own dogs? What is it about dogs that so many people love? What does the connection between do for us? For our dogs?


The first two classes (June 19 and June 26) will be offered via Zoom and the last two classes (July 10 and July 17) will be offered (weather permitting) in-person at the house of Tom Richards of Nellie’s Schoolhouse at 35 Old Covered Bridge Rd. Newtown Square Pa. 19035.
