Teaching a dog new tricks can be done
Dogs of all shapes and sizes join their owners each week at the Ipswich Dog Obedience Club at Tivoli.
These friendly canines learn new skills such as socialising with other dogs, obedience and agility.
The club originally formed in 1964 and trained at Silkstone before moving to their new home at Tivoli in 1996.
The club suffered greatly after the 2011 flood but bounced back with the support of its members and the community.
Instructor Julie Dinh said one of the more beneficial aspects of the classes was that dog owners learn to walk their dogs down the street with confidence.
"People who haven't had a dog before may not realise that dogs are pack animals and we can teach them how a dog thinks in a pack situation."
