In response to COVID-19, AHS is working to safely resume services in phases.
Currently, private training sessions and group obedience courses are available both online and in-person with enhanced safety protocols. Specialty classes, workshops, and Reactive Rovers have resumed in-person sessions, while Therapy Dog Prep and CGC testing remain temporarily suspended.
If you have questions, please call us at 763-489-2217.
Animal Humane Society’s behavior and training classes are flexible and pet-oriented. Our experienced, professional trainers will teach you real-life skills you can use with your pet. At this time, only one human may attend with each dog.
Families who have recently adopted from AHS are extended a new adopter discount. Please review the information packet you received at the time of adoption for your discount code.
Private Training Sessions
One-on-one training sessions with our trainers are available both in-person and online. The cost is $40 for a 30-minute session. Please complete this online form to request a session and help us better address your concerns.
Obedience courses will give you practical skills for training your dog to be a well-mannered member of your household. Classes are now available both in-person and online.
In Puppy Kindergarten, we focus on developing confidence to new situations. If you would like your puppy to gain exposure to playing with other puppies off leash, you can attend our puppy playgroups.
Specialty classes include training for more specific skills, like scent detection or tricks. Workshops focusing on exercising your dog's brain, not jumping up, and more are also available.
Reactive Rovers is designed for dogs that bark, snarl, lunge, or growl at other dogs while on leash.
Our Therapy Dog Prep course covers common animal-assisted therapy scenarios and prepares you and your dog for your evaluation. (Note: Therapy Dog classes are temporarily suspended)
The American Kennel Club’s Canine Good Citizen test (CGC) is a certification program that evaluates dogs in simulated everyday situations in a relaxed, noncompetitive atmosphere. (Note: CGC testing is temporarily suspended)
