Dog Training Classes
The Kansas Humane Society is pleased to offer dog training classes for dogs and their owners taught at KHS by our expert staff. Enroll in one of these dog training classes:

Puppy Kindergarten
Basic Manners
Canine Good Citizen
Help for Your Reactive Dog


Our quality instruction and intimate environment will provide you and your dog the training and skills you need to have a long and happy, well-mannered life together.
 



Does your dog bark at everything she sees or lunge when on leash? Are you walking him at midnight just to avoid other dogs, squirrels, cars and other stimuli that makes him lunge on a leash? We can help!

With the use of positive reinforcement dog training, you'll learn to encourage calm behavior from your dog in situations that previously resulted in distress, why your dog behaves this way, what the triggers are, and how to reduce reactivity.

For dogs 6 months and up
Must be current on age-appropriate vaccinations (including rabies).
Class size: 6 dogs
Class fee: $120

Dog Training Class Instructors: Kelly Spencer - CPDT-KA, Co-owner Family Dog Training and Behavioral Center and Stacy Cleaves - KHS Assessment Supervisor.
You may need to provide training tools such as treats and training guides (a Gentle Leader, Halti, or harness) all available in our store. Possibly a muzzle for your dog.
Sorry, no human/canine dangerous aggression dogs. Please contact us for a private consultation.

In order to be most successful, dogs in this class should have some basic training and respond to cues such as "sit" and "down" within your home. Upon enrollment, we ask you complete a dog behavior questionnaire so that one of our Certified Professional Dog Trainers can consult with you before your class session begins.

Canine Good Citizen
Want to show off your dog’s skills? We are now offering Canine Good Citizen classes. This program rewards dogs who have good manners at home and in the community. The class is 7 weeks long with the last week being the night of the test. After this test, your dog will be certified Canine Good Citizen through the American Kennel Club. All dogs can participate but need to be at least 6 months old. No dog is too old to show off their skills or learn new ones. The test is 10 steps and the class will walk you through each step so you know what to work on. In the end, you will be able to show great handling and leash work skills along with some other solid obedience.

Must be current on age-appropriate vaccinations (including rabies).
You may need to provide training tools such as treats and training guides (a Gentle Leader, Halti, or harness) all available in our store.
