Basic Training Classes

Build a good foundation with our basic dog training classes.

Basic Dog Training Classes

Let's face it, Training Classes are an investment of both time and money; however, the return on that investment can be life changing for you and your companion.  Learning to train your pet is fun and doesn't require any specialized experience.  Our enthusiastic instructors will help you learn to build a strong bond with your companion by improving communication, understanding, and appropriate boundaries.  Your pet will benefit from clear leadership, exercise, training and play.  The result will be a well-mannered family member that is happy and a joy to live with. 

In addition, all proceeds from our training classes go directly back to helping animals in need at the Nebraska Humane Society.

Drop-In Training Class

What to expect from this class

At every class, owners will have access to one of our skilled instructors to answer questions or concerns that need attention. Each class will provide guided instruction on developing skills; however, individual needs also will be addressed.

Who should take this class

Busy families that need flexibility in scheduling and individuals that may only need some guided assistance on one or two particular behaviors.  Whether you just have a couple questions or concerns that could be addressed in one class or you don't have time to commit to a 6-week course, these classes provide valuable opportunities to train and bond with your dog in the presence of a skilled NHS instructor.
