Learn to "dog paddle" at Metroparks kayaking class

Lake Metroparks wants you to learn how to dog paddle so much, it's started a boating class on the topic.

The Dog Paddle will teach dog owners how to paddle, get into a kayak, make "wet exits" and get back into a kayak with a canine companion.

Completion of the Metroparks' Kayak 101 is a prerequisite. Instructor Leigh Garam can take a minimum of four and maximum of 14, and also recommends a life jacket for the dogs in her class.

Classes are from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Wednesdays, June 24, July 22 and August 12.

Call 440-358-7275 or 800-669-9226 or visit to register.
