Puppy Petiquette  $100 for 6 weeks/ meets once per week  (Puppies 8 weeks old + are still welcome to enroll in Petiquette 1)
Puppies must be 8 to 20 weeks old.  Class is primarily for socialization and introduction to basic manners. Learn latest training techniques on house training, puppy biting, crate training, getting past fears, and other behaviors encountered by puppy parents. If during the duration of the 6 weeks your dog “ages out” of class, they can finish their sessions in the Tweens class. For more information, please contact Tanya at tmw411@yahoo.com
Class is a ROLLING open enrollment – you may start on any Wednesday but you must attend 6 consecutive sessions.  You must complete an enrollment form and pay prior to coming.  You can enroll online or at the shelter.

Tweens Puppy Petiquette  $100 for 6 weeks/ meets once per week (Puppies 8 weeks old + are still welcome to enroll in Petiquette 1)
Puppies must be 5 to 10 months old.  Sometimes puppies are not quite ready for group obedience class but too mature for puppy class. This class is a combination of socialization through supervised play sessions and a stronger emphasis on manners and impulse control than the younger puppy class.  NOTE: This class does not replace the skills learned in Petiquette 1.  For more information, please contact Tanya at tmw411@yahoo.com

Lynn Morgan from Agility Directions is teaming up with HHHS to offer agility classes at our shelter. Agility is the ultimate game for you and your dog. It is an activity that strengthens the bond between dog and handler and provides fun and exercise for both. Agility boosts the confidence of both dog and handler, too. We encourage people of all ages to sign up for the class with their four-legged friend. You will not be disappointed with the fun you have learning this fast-growing sport with your dog!

NOTE: Dogs must be 8 months of age to take the class.
