Program structure and fees

Animal Humane Society offers two- or four-month training passes for our obedience classes (Puppy Kindergarten, Obedience Courses Levels 1-5, and Canine Good Citizen Prep), providing you more flexibility with your schedule.

Most dogs are able to pass an obedience course after attending the course for three to five weeks. We recommend a four-month pass to see notable changes in behavior. If you can't commit to four months, you can renew your two-month pass anytime.

Before purchasing a Training School pass, please watch our Introduction to Dog Training video, where you'll learn about our program and the variety of classes and playgroups we offer.
