Our goal in offering these classes is to improve the bonds of co-operation, trust, and love that you experience with your dog. We hope to help you learn the skills required to better communicate and lead your dog in becoming a treasured family member and good canine citizen. We do not offer any magic pills or wave any magic wands to achieve this end. Successful dog training requires time, commitment, and patience from the humans involved. A well behaved dog does not often "just happen". It is lifetime process. A great dog is the result of great owners. We hope that we can set you on the path to becoming a great owner and help your dog reach their full potential.
Remember- "don't just complain - TRAIN"
Dogs are smart and can learn, no matter what the age! At the completion of the 8 week course, your dog will receive his or her diploma at a graduation celebration.
If your dog is not socialized with people or other dogs, needs work walking on a leash, jumps, barks or any other issues, our training class can make a difference.
Primary Class (Basic): A more structured approach to becoming a better family member. Teaching basic commands and addressing most canine problem behaviors. Click here for more information.

The Humane Society's new Patti Brown Educational/Training Room was designed for Obedience classes. We limit our class size to 10 pets and their owners. The first week is for owners only. If the class is filled an additional class is usually scheduled for another time. If the dog was adopted from the Humane Society a $10 discount would be applied for the first class you and your dog attend good for 1 year after adoption. At Paws Along the River our goal is to improve the bonds of co-operation, trust, and love that you experience with your dog. We want to help you learn the skills required to better communicate and lead your dog in becoming a treasured family member and good canine citizen. We hope that we can set you on the path to becoming a great owner and help your dog reach their full potential.
