Dog Training Classes

Marin Humane’s Behavior & Training team offers dog training classes from beginning skills to advanced behaviors that will help you and your dog develop a great relationship.

Our instructors use positive reinforcement to teach your dog a variety of skills including how to walk on a leash without pulling (ugh!), to sit or lie down quietly (ahhhh), to come when called and to wait at doors (yay!). In addition, we offer dog sport classes including agility (yipee!), scenting (hmmm), flyball and rally obedience (woohoo!).

The most important relationship your dog is going to have is with you. But teaching young dogs to get along with other dogs is an important part of developing a stable adult dog.

The Puppy Social Scene is for puppies up to 20 weeks (5 months) old at the start of the series. $100 for a four week session. At least 2 sets of shots are required. Please bring current vaccination records and food treats for your dog. Can be taken concurrently with Beginning Puppy.
