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!).

101 - Puppy Social Scene

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.

107 - Senior Handling

Senior Handling is for senior citizens (62+) and people with disabilities who need a high level of support and a slower pace than the typical Family Dog classes. Not an obedience class, Senior Handling is a 4-week program designed to help older or disabled people train their dogs so that both can remain safe and comfortable at home. The topics covered are tailored to the individual needs of participants and usually address issues such as jumping up, pulling on the leash, maintaining good house training habits, and providing sufficient exercise and environmental enrichment. The team of experienced senior instructors who lead this course can also aid in acclimating dogs to walkers or canes.

For dogs 4 months and older. FIRST CLASS IS MANDATORY AND FOR PEOPLE ONLY, NO DOGS, PLEASE! $60 for 4 weeks. (First class is 1 1/2 hours long, all other classes 1 hour.) Limited to 4 dogs/handlers.
