Seattle Humane Society’s Most Popular Dog Training Course is Open for Registration


BELLEVUE, WA – Registration is now open for the Seattle Humane Society’s “Basic Manners” dog training course, a six week course designed to teach dogs and their guardians all the basics!

Register by calling (425) 641-0080, or download the registration form at www.seattlehumane.org/training.shtml and fax it to (425) 747-2985.  The cost for the course is $120 for general public and $95 for Seattle Humane Society adopters.  There are only 8-10 spots per course to ensure one-on-one attention, so dog lovers are encouraged to register right away to secure a spot.

 “Basic Manners” is a six-week training course for dogs, at least five months of age, and their guardians to learn basic commands, leash manners, techniques for preventing unwanted behaviors and solutions to common behavioral problems.  Dogs will be able to socialize with other dogs and will learn to work around distractions. All of the Seattle Humane Society courses use positive, gentle, and fun training methods, including clicker training.  Clicker training is a very effective, science-based system for teaching new behaviors with positive reinforcement. 

There are five “Basic Manners” courses beginning in April that will meet for one hour every week:

¨        Wednesdays, 4/9 – 5/21, 12:15 p.m.

¨        Fridays, 4/4 – 5/16, 4:15 p.m.

¨        Saturdays, 4/5 – 5/17, 11:30 a.m.

¨        Saturdays, 4/12 – 5/24, 2:15 p.m.

¨        Saturdays, 4/12 – 5/24, 4:45 p.m.

The courses will take place at the Seattle Humane Society, located in Bellevue at 13212 SE Eastgate Way.

The Seattle Humane Society was founded in 1897 to bring people and pets together.  The Seattle Humane Society does this today through its low-fee spay/neuter surgery program, pet workshops and training, pet food bank, humane teen club, visiting pets program and more. The Seattle Humane Society is located in Bellevue, at 13212 SE Eastgate Way.  For directions and more information, visit www.seattlehumane.org or call (425) 641-0080.
