Beginning January 3rd, our Dog and Puppy Training Classes will be returning to Prairie’s Edge Humane Society (PEHS)! After a few months of not being able to hold these classes, due to not having a facility in which to hold them since July, we will be starting them up again and they will be held in Northfield at 1500 Clinton Lane, Suite J, thanks to the fine folks at E & J Management.
This is an important program for PEHS not only because it is a program which helps owners and their dogs but it is also an important revenue source for the PEHS shelter, which is badly needed.
Thanks to Jon Jasnoch of E & J Management for helping us to find a facility which is conducive to dogs and the special needs of providing this class. Once again a local business person has stepped forward to help when needed in our community!
The classes will run every Monday evening and each are one hour long, with Puppy Kindergarten at 6 PM, Basic Manners class at 7 PM and Advanced Manners class at 8 PM. Our classes promote positive and effective training that is fun for you and your pet! Our flexible classes allow you to attend when you are able and progress at your own pace. The cost is $65 for 6 weeks, with a rolling enrollment so you can enroll and begin classes on any given week.
Our classes are taught by an accredited trainer, who has worked with dogs of all sizes, shapes and with various behavior issues. She has worked with Great Danes to Chihuahua’s! She is up to date on the latest training techniques and believes that "any behavior issue, as long as it is not medical related, can be fixed with dedicated and positive training".
Through these classes you can expect to improve communication with your dog as well as create a stronger bond and have fun with your dog! We encourage you to bring your whole family – kids too! Classes include a chance for supervised dog play time!
Please call the PEHS shelter at 507-334-7117 for more information or to register for classes. Private lessons are also available for dogs that need some help at home or cannot attend class, please contact the shelter to discuss costs for private lessons.
Thank you to the Jasnoch family of E & J Management for helping PEHS!
