Start off on the right paw! Puppy ABC classes meet every week for six consecutive weeks. There are several available sessions each month, so check out our website at wihumane.org for open dates. Your puppy will learn some very important cues, including sit, down and wait at the door. The classes emphasize proper socialization and handling, so puppies can develop into successful, polite adult dogs. If your puppy is five months or younger, check out this class today!
Need Some Expert Advice? Sometimes you may have concerns about your dog's behavior that go beyond the scope of regular dog training classes or seminars. To schedule a one-on-one behavior consultation with one of the animal experts at the Wisconsin Humane Society, please call (414) 431-6114.
