Program structure and fees

Animal Humane Society offers two- or four-month training passes for our obedience classes (Puppy Kindergarten and Levels 1-5 courses), providing you more flexibility with your schedule. Our passes work similarly to a gym membership ― you're paying for time, not courses.

Most dogs are able to pass a level after attending the class 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 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.
