Why HSN Training?

Behavior Classes will resume in September. Please check back for class schedules and how to register.

Behavior & Obedience

Our obedience program teaches you how to train your dog using balanced training methods, that is scientifically proven to work for the young, old, in between, previously trained or those that are just starting out. We will cover sit, down, stay, loose leash walking, the heel position, as well as the recall. If your pup just needs a few manners, or if you want to go all the way through to get your canine companion off leash, we can teach you how and help you and man’s best friend develop a deeper relationship.

Our Shelter Behaviorist is here to ensure that your pet is a life-long member of your family. Develop a better relationship between you and your dog through Humane Society Naples’ behavior training classes.

At HSN, we believe that keeping pets in their loving homes is important. These training classes are constructed to teach both owner and dog to work together while strengthening their bond through education, communication and positive reinforcement.

HSN offers classes ranging from basic puppy manners to advanced beyond basics during private classes for one-on-one attention. Please contact our Behaviorist at dogtraining@hsnaples.org or 239-643-1555 x 33 for additional information.
