Whether it is excessive barking, jumping, chewing or not being good with children, 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 can help!

We offer affordable dog and puppy training classes designed to help you develop the skills needed to make living with your dog pleasurable and much easier.

COVID-19 safety precautions:   At the NHSPCA – we believe in creating a safe and healthy space for our animals, our staff, and our guests. While we are hopeful for continued positive change in COVID cases, and will continue to monitor trends, we are still asking that masks be worn when indoors if necessary. 

We are also requesting that only one (1) person per dog attend the class to reduce the number of participants and potential exposure.  (We offer private consults if you’d  like to have an additional person learn the training techniques.)

If you have a temperature over 99.9, have any symptoms of, or an exposure to a positive COVID 19 person we kindly ask that you do not enter our facility and you let the class trainer and/or NHSPCA staff know in advance.

We thank you in advance for your understanding and cooperation.
