KHS Group Behavior Classes
Whether you're interested in training basics for your puppy or adult dog, resolving problem behaviors or teaching tricks, KHS has a class for you and your dog. View our calendar of upcoming training classes.
Vaccines Prior to Class
Please bring a copy of your dog’s most recent vaccinations to the first night of class. Vaccinations required are rabies, distemper/parvo (titers accepted for dogs over two years of age) and bordetella.
There have been documented cases of Canine Influenza in our area. The Kentucky Humane Society strongly recommends that the Canine Influenza Vaccine and subsequent booster vaccination be given prior to attending behavior training class. Learn more. Students who elect not to get this vaccination may attend class but will be asked to sign a waiver.
Interested in one-on-one training? Check out our Individual Training options, which include In-Home Training with you and your dog, In-Office Consultations, and Day Training, in which our insured trainers come to your home and work with your dog while you're away.
