HSHV offers affordable training for dogs at every level. Our classes use positive reinforcement to teach dogs how to problem solve and make good decisions on their own.  They promote positive, trusting relationships and effective communication practices between you and your canine pal.

Puppy Socialization Meet-up Nights:

Puppy play is incredibly important for young puppies and adolescent dogs.  This is where they learn important life skills such as how to engage in appropriate play, calming signals, conflict management/resolution and bite inhibition.  These are valuable skills that your puppy will use throughout his life that will help him be successful and social with other dogs.  Once puppies reach a certain age—around 4 to 6 months—their ability to easily accept new experiences begins to wane. For this reason, we promote early and positive socialization. This group is a semi-structured play session and not a formal training.

You can register for as many classes as you which to attend. The fee is $7 per play group.
