Kids and K9s

It can be challenging to keep children entertained and active during the mid-summer months. We’ve designed a kid- and dog-friendly training program that’s both educational and fun! Join Animal Humane Society’s expert dog trainers for a six-session training course for kids ages 8-12. We’ll teach your child about dog behavior, basic training techniques, and cool canine tricks. Plus, we’ll work on useful, everyday skills like sit, down, come, loose-leash walking, and more!

Dogs must be well behaved in a group setting and friendly toward other dogs and people. Dogs displaying signs of fear or aggression will be dismissed with no refund. A parent or guardian must be in attendance during class.

Week one of class is for people only; no dogs please.

Involving your kids in the dog-training process teaches responsible pet ownership and creates more consistency for your dog — a key ingredient in successful training.

Space is limited. Sign up today!
