DoDog Works stays in touch with students through DWTC yahoo group mailing list. It is a moderated list used to inform students about class changes and local dog events. Sometimes we share happy and/or sad news here. Since instructors are the only ones that can post, it is a very low volume list. You need to email your instructor directly if you have a question.
