The Jacksonville Humane Society is pleased to offer training classes to furry members of our community. All classes take place at our Adoption, Education and Pet Help Center located at 8464 Beach Blvd.
All dogs must be spayed or neutered to attend classes at JHS. If you need resources for these services, do not hesitate to contact us.
Basic Dog Manners and Puppy & Small Dog Training Classes are six weeks long and one hour each. There are up to six dogs in Basic Dog Manners classes and up to eight dogs in Puppy & Small Dog Training Classes.
Advanced Dog Training & Canine Good Citizen Training Classes are six weeks long and one hour each. There are up to six dogs in the class. Advanced classes are for those who have completed our Puppy or Basic classes or a beginner class with another trainer.
Reactive Rover Does your dog bark and lunge at passing dogs, cats, cars, or other triggers? Join us for a six-week exploration into why your dog reacts this way and what you, as canine parent, can do to help. In our first class, we will dive into the science behind why dogs react while on leash in a consultation for humans only. Then you and your dog will have four private, 30-minute training sessions with our instructor. In our sixth and final session, we will end with a pack walk for all those who can participate to show off their new non-reactive dog!
One-on-One Classes are three one-hour sessions with just you, your dog and a trainer.
Classes are held on the same day and time each week.
If you miss a class, there are no makeup sessions, but our trainer will email you information covered on the day you were absent.
A $15 discount is available for any dog adopted from JHS. Email or call us at 904-493-4586 to receive your code and discount.

All pets over the age of 6 months must be spayed/neutered and current on vaccines to attend. Unaltered puppies under 6 months of age may attend class with a rabies vaccine. JHS Training Classes are non-refundable.
Children are welcome but cannot be the main handler. An adult must be present at every class. Children should be of the age where they can participate in the training and not need additional supervision.
