Dog Training


Did you know Columbus Humane provides training for dogs and puppies with certified trainers? While we could train your dog to fetch your slippers, more importantly we will show you how to create basic obedience, approach other dogs, teach your dog to walk on a leash and so much more related to general obedience. We offer fear-free, science-based training and have the ability to provide individualized and extra support for specific problem behaviors such as barking and jumping. Class fees are $100 and discounts are available if you have adopted from us. And 100% of your payment benefits the animals at Columbus Humane. Think of it as a great opportunity to spend quality time with your BFF, while supporting our work on behalf of all animals.


We teach classes specific to puppies aged 12 weeks to 6 months. Enrollment is ongoing for puppy classes. Puppies must complete a six-week session to graduate. Our dog training classes are for dogs older than six months and are held in six-week increments.

Puppy training classes are typically held every Wednesday evening from 6:45pm to 7:45pm followed by dog training classes from 8:00pm to 9:00pm. We require proof that puppies and dogs have the following vaccines to participate:

  • Rabies

  • DA2PP - Canine Distemper Vaccine - at least 2 vaccines

  • Bordatella - 2 doses if given subcutaneously or within 7 days if by Intranasal

    We no longer require a Dog Influenza vaccine, but we highly recommend it.



Puppy classes are held on Wednesday evenings from 6:45 to 7:45pm, while dog training classes follow from 8-9pm. Wednesday classes for 2019 will be held on:

1/9-2/13 (Full)
