Basic Training Classes

Build a good foundation with our basic dog training classes.

Basic Training Classes

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. Instructors will assist in building a strong bond with your companion by improving communication, understanding and teaching how to set appropriate boundaries. You and your companion 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. 

Tuesday Drop-In Training Class   

Drop-in classes provide busy families and individuals that need flexibility in scheduling and/or some guided assistance with 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, this class will provide valuable opportunities to train and bond with your dog.

Price: $16.05

Schedule: Drop-in classes are TUESDAYS from 5:30-6:30 p.m and are held in the Center for Humane Services (CHS).

Please pay online or at the Customer Service Counter in the main building of the Nebraska Humane Society.
