Dog TrainingLearn to Effectively Communicate With Your Dog!
Santa Barbara Humane Society is pleased to be offering dog training classes. We will be offering a variety of different classes for both dogs and puppies. In addition, we will be offering puppy socials where puppies can socialize and play with other pups.
SBHS trainers focus on strengthening the relationship and improving communication between human and dogs to create a healthy, happy, lifelong partnership. SBHS dog trainers are highly trained and experienced in the modern, humane and effective use of force-free, reward based training techniques, and as a result, find no need to use coercive methods that employ fear, pain, intimidation or outdated notions of dominance. As a result, dogs learn to trust their human handlers, strengthening the bond between dog and owner.
Training focuses on replacing unwanted behavior with desirable behavior while setting dogs up for success. The resulting trust and fear-free learning experience creates resilient dogs who can’t wait to train, exuberantly show-up for their training sessions and consistently exceed our expectations.
Please note that it is mandatory that you register and attend orientation before your first class.
