Hollywood Dog Training School closes after 9 decades

LOS ANGELES (AP) — A dog training school, which housed and groomed Toto from the movie "The Wizard  of Oz;" Lassie, star of one of the longest-running series in television history; and Rin Tin Tin, from the 1950s television series, is closing its doors.

KABC-TV reports the Hollywood Dog Training School is closing after 90 years in operation.

School owner Rick Karl is retiring, thus bringing the school's storied existence to an end. Karl has owned the school, which opened in 1927, for the past 40 years.

Karl says Lassie used to have a limo that would come here and pick her up and take her to the studios."

In fact, Lassie was so famous that she didn't sleep in a kennel -- she had her own bedroom.
