Dog Training Classes

Our Training Philosophy


At Willamette Humane Society, we are committed to using positive, rewards-based training methods to help dog owners build healthy relationships with their canine family members. From puppy kindergarten and basic skill-building courses to classes that address specific issues, we offer a variety of classes and seminars year round. All classes are taught by a Certified Professional Dog Trainer, and class sizes are kept small to ensure personalized attention.
