Private lessons are a great way to get an introduction to clicker training or receive one-on-one coaching to make progress with behaviors like coming when called, settling down, greeting visitors nicely or walking on a loose leash. Please contact the office prior to selecting this option for your first session: firstname.lastname@example.org or 508-815-5324.

Want to concentrate on a specific skill? Three week mini-sessions focus on one skill to teach you how to perfect your dog’s loose-leash walking, polite greetings or recall (come-when-called).

To secure a spot in our classes, you must pay for the class in full and complete a registration form. Once we have received your information and payment, we will send you a confirmation.
We require any dog attending class to be free from contagious disease and parasites and current on all vaccines per their veterinarian’s recommendation. Dogs over the age of 6 months must have a current rabies vaccination. Should your dog show symptoms of illness (such as coughing, vomiting, diarrhea, extreme lethargy or lack of appetite) within 48 hours of your class, please leave him/her at home to avoid spreading anything to your classmates’ dogs. Even if your dog is unable to attend class, you can still come to see the material presented—this will allow you to keep up with the exercises and jump right back in once your dog is feeling better. All family members are welcome in class; however, children under the age of 7 must be supervised by another adult.
Refund Policy: All classes are on a first come/first served basis. If the class you were interested in has filled, you will be contacted about alternate class availability. If you find you are unable to take a class after registering for it, you must notify the office 10 days prior to the start of the class. Notification after 10 days will result in you forfeiting 50% of your registration fee. We are unable to refund tuition once class has started. Sorry, no exceptions! Your support of the training programs helps the thousands of animals we care for each year.
* Full Classes & Wait Lists *
If you would like to be added to a ‘Wait List’ in the event that a full class has a cancellation, please complete your registration and then email the office at email@example.com to indicate the class you are interested in being added to the wait list for. Please be sure to include daytime phone numbers as we may need to reach you last minute.
“Orbit improved week by week and even did things we could never get him to do alone, such as the ‘down’ command and simply settling in a busy environment! The manners class through the MSPCA has helped us tremendously in getting Orbit through his crazy puppy stages. We have a great base of knowledge to continue his training at home.”
