Private Training

Now accepting new clients!

We are excited to offer virtual and in-person private training sessions through the Wisconsin Humane Society Milwaukee Campus! We utilize reward-based, positive reinforcement strategies to improve the lives of animals and the people who care for them. Private sessions are an excellent option for dogs that would not be comfortable in a group class setting. They are also a great option for families that wish to work on a targeted training plan specific to their family and situation, or would like a high level of flexibility with scheduling. 

Topics that can be covered in private sessions include but are not limited to:

  • Basic manners
  • Pulling on leash
  • Coming when called
  • Jumping
  • Counter surfing
  • Reactivity
  • Fearful behaviors
  • And more!

Private sessions have a fee of $75 each. If this would be a financial hardship, please contact for scholarship options.  

Please note: availability is limted and appointments are being book about 3-6 weeks in advance. Contact Sam Steinbring, Behavior and Training Specialist, at to get started!

If you're in need of more immediate support, we recommend community members seeking the support of a dog trainer reach out to the Force Free Trainers of Wisconsin ( 

We look forward to working with you!
