Dog Training

Learning to train your pet is fun and doesn’t require any specialized experience.

Dog Training at NHS

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. 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. 

NHS is following CDC guidelines, so masks are required to attend classes.

How to Register for Classes

Registering for a class is different then what you may be used to. Please follow the directions below to make your experience go smoothly.

1. Pick the class date & time that you would like and write it down. This is the only time you will see the offerings. (If there are no dates, please check back later. It means the current offerings are full.)
2. Click on “Enroll”
