K-9 Obedience Class

K-9 Obedience Classes offer training for adopted dogs, puppies, and the general public at AVNM, at low rates to encourage bonding, safety and a comfortable lifestyle for all adopted dogs and their families. The highest number of companion animals end up in kill-shelters simply because guardians do not take the time to train their pets. We strive to make this easy from the day the dog is adopted, by offering free training for our adopters, and by making it available to the public. 

Puppies 3 months and older, and adult dogs any age are welcome but MUST be up to date on shots, and adult dogs must be spayed or neutered.  Proof of shots and spay/neuter is required at the time of registration. Class attendees must be on a standard 4-6' nylon leash - NO retractable leashes!


Class cost is $45.00 for 3 Saturdays, 8:30 - 10:00 a.m.


Class is free to AnimalVILLAGENM adopters!
