100 Percent Pass Rate for Latest JAG Dog Therapy Certification Class

100 Percent Pass Rate for Latest JAG Dog Therapy Certification Class

The JAG Dog Training Club members took the Canine Good Citizen/Therapy Dog International test on June 16, 2016 at Coastal Dog Training in Newport News. In spite of it being very warm in the testing building as there was no air conditioning, 100 percent of the Jefferson Lab dogs passed the test, reports Joyce Miller, club captain.

The CGC/TDI evaluator was really impressed with the class. He thought the JLab dogs were very nice, well-behaved and would all make great therapy dogs!

Catch the Free Yoga Classes on Wednesdays in CEBAF Center

As a JAG activity, Joe Beaufait, Physics Division, is offering free, all-level yoga classes on Wednesdays in CEBAF Center. The classes run from 5:30-6:30 p.m. and take place in one of three areas of CC: the auditorium, or conference room F113 or F224/225.

Joe is a 200-hour certified yoga instructor. He describes this all-level class as friendly to the beginner, but offers plenty of challenges for those who want to push themselves. Yoga is a great way to lower blood pressure, lose weight, gain flexibility and reduce stress, he adds.

If you are interested, just bring a yoga mat, and wear easy-to-move-in clothing to the class.

If you’d like notification, let Jodi Patient, CEBAF Center receptionist, know and she’ll post the classes to your zimbra calendar.
