Dog Training

Convenient, flexible, and fits the needs of both you and your canine companion

Buy training packages that fit your budget, then come to training when it fits your schedule. Just click on the calendar below to see when classes are offered.

All training packages begin with a free orientation class that will explain how we train at IndyHumane and will walk you through our process. If you attend the orientation and decide that our training isn't for you, the free hour-long session will at least send you home with basic dog behavior and training tips that should prove helpful in any training setting. 

Orientations are held every Monday at 6:00pm and every Saturday at 1:00pm. However, always check our online calendar for occasional cancellations. You can also email to ensure an orientation will be taking place. Once you attend orientation, you can start training immediately.

Orientations start promptly. Arriving even 5 minutes late can result in an attendee missing out on vital information. Late arrivals may be asked to repeat the orientation, in order to ensure that they are ready for training classes. Orientations are for humans only, not dogs. You do not need an appointment to attend an orientation. Need more information about the days and times classes are offered? Just check out the calendar listings.

Two levels are offered

Foundation classes are for dogs five months and older. You only learn the behaviors you want your dog to have. We put together a plan for your dog and work on that plan throughout your training session.

Puppy is for pups 8 weeks to 5 months old. We will work on basic obedience skills, socialize with other puppies, and learn how to have fun at the vet or the groomer. This class is perfect if your puppy is biting your kids, chewing up the furniture, or just isn't learning to potty outside. We work on the skills you want at a pace that fits you and your puppy.

Learn to Speak Dog

IndyHumane's free Orientation session goes over dog body language and discusses how dogs communicate. Even if you aren't interested in signing up for classes at IndyHumane, the Orientation will help you better understand your dog and how your dog communicates. It is a great class to bring the entire family to as we go over how children should interact with dogs. This is a class for humans only, no dogs. No need to sign up, just look at the calendar and attend an Orientation session that is convenient for you.
