Dog Training Classes

We are exclusively offering virtual dog training classes at this time.
All of our puppy and dog training classes use reward-based training techniques. To participate in a virtual class, you will join a private Facebook group, and each week, we will offer live streams of the class. If you are unable to participate during a live stream session, you will have access to the recording at any point via the Facebook page for the duration of the class. Each week, handouts for each of the exercises covered in class will be sent to you via email, too. 

To register, please check our calendar for our upcoming class start dates. We hope you can join us! If you have additional questions please contact sstein@wihumane.org or 414-431-6156.
