To sign your dog up for obedience class, please call HHS at (386) 274-4703 and press "1" for our adoption lobby. If you are interested in private lessons, please call (386) 274-4703 at extension 326.
Training is a great way to bond with your dog and learn more about how a dog thinks and responds to both you and the environment. In class, you will learn to train your dog using positive reinforcement methods. Your dog will learn basic commands such as sit, stay, down, come, as well as loose leash walking; problem solving techniques are always an important part of the group class. The foundational training you and your dog will receive will continue to help you throughout your dog’s life.
