Whether it is jumping, chewing, leash manners, recall or you’re just looking for good behavior, we can help! Many pet owners struggle to make their dogs a well-behaved part of the family. In fact, one of the main reasons dog owners surrender their dog is because of behavior problems. We are here to help you reach your training goals!

We offer a wide selection of affordable classes for all ages and behavioral needs. Whether you are looking for your dog to socialize with others, learn their manners, master a new skill, or just have fun, we have what you are looking for!


Health and Safety Information – At the NHSPCA, we believe in creating a safe and healthy space for our animals, staff, and guests. At this time, masks are NOT required while participating in training classes. However, we will continue to monitor Covid-19 trends in our area, and masking requirements may be updated at any time. To maximize safety, we are allowing  two (2) people per dog to attend the class to limit the number of individuals in an enclosed space for long periods of time.

If you or someone in your group has symptoms of Covid-19 (including a fever, cough, sneezing, etc.), a known Covid-19 exposure, or you simply feel sick, we kindly ask that you do not enter our facility and notify us as soon as possible.

Did you not find the class that you were interested in? The training classes are updated regularly, so please check back often! If you need immediate assistance please see our Private Consult information or email [email protected].
