Manners for Life, dogs 4 months and older
6 weeks, meeting Thursdays, 6:00 – 7:00 pm from October 12 – November 16
at the Kentucky Humane Society’s East Campus located at 1000 Lyndon Lane, Louisville, KY 40222.
It’s time for your dog to learn the basics! Your canine friend will learn to sit, stay, down, walk on a leash and more in the presence of distractions like other dogs and their handlers. Classes also address unwanted behaviors, such as leash pulling and jumping on people. Class meets for one hour once a week for six weeks at the same time and day each week.
*If your dog is fearful or becomes overly excited (barking, lunging, or excessively pulling) when they see dogs, people, or other things in their environment, they may not be appropriate for this class. Reactive Rover, Wallflowers, or another class might be a better fit. If you need help determining which class is right for you, please call our Community Behavior Department at 502-253-2883.
Please bring a copy of your dog’s most recent vaccination records 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.
Payment is required at registration. As all funds go back to care for the animals in our shelter, all fees are non-refundable.
