Dog Manners Class - Dog Training for Adult Dogs
Thank you for your interest in Dog Manners Class at the Wisconsin Humane Society - Milwaukee Campus located at 4500 W. Wisconsin Avenue!
This is the start date of a six-week class. Manners classes meet for 6 consecutive weeks on the same day and at the same time as the start date.
All of our classes use reward based training techniques where we will teach you how to use a clicker for training. Your dog will be taught in a positive learning environment where he or she will have fun! Upon completion of this class, your dog will have learned many cues such as sit, down, stay, off, leave it, wait at the door, come, walking on a loose leash and other important skills.
Social dogs only, please!! Dogs that have shown any prior aggression to other dogs or people are NOT allowed in the group class setting under any circumstances (including if you already paid for the class). Aggression can not be addressed in this venue; you will not get the attention you deserve and it puts others at risk. Please call us for private training to get the best behavior treatment for your companion.
This class is for dogs 5 months and older.
Payment is required for each dog at the time of registration. The fee for dogs adopted from a shelter or rescue is $105.00 (adoption contract must be presented upon request) and $125.00 for non-adopted dogs. Tickets are per dog not per person.
VACCINATIONS: All dogs need to be current on their Rabies (if over 4 months of age), Distemper, and Bordetella (kennel cough) vaccines before the first class. Be sure to bring your vaccination records with you to the first class! Please check your records because even if you adopted from us, you may not have all the vaccinations needed for class. Dogs will not be able to participate in class without proper vaccination records.
Guardians/Handlers must be at least 18 years old and children under 8 are not allowed to attend. We limit classes to 10 dogs and provide a trainer and assistant for all classes with a ratio of 1 person to 5 dogs.
* PLEASE NOTE ** DOGS DO NOT ATTEND THE FIRST DAY OF CLASS!!
If you are a volunteer at the Wisconsin Humane Society, please do not sign up on-line, but call Nora Hart at 414-431-6156.
**** PAYMENTS ARE NON-REFUNDABLE ****
If you decide not to attend the class date in which you are registered your payment will be used for the animals in our non-profit facility. If you are uncertain whether our classes will meet your expectations, you are welcome to sit in on a class (without your dog) before you pay. Just give us a call!
If you miss the first class you will not be able to continue. The foundation for the six-week session is layed in class 1 and therefore must be attended in order to continue class.
