Dog Training

Dear MHS Training Center Fans and Friends

UPDATE-  June 13th, 2020:

We have started 1-on-1 lessons and those are going well.  We have a small number of private lesson spots available each week for many types of need.  Private lessons will be scheduled for Basic Training (all ages), Rally, Agility, Competition Obedience and other dog-training needs.  Lessons are $60/hour and are scheduled by appointment.  Depending on your needs, we have several different days and times available. Please email Rachel: FMI.  

Private Training Room Rentals are being scheduled and require that you contact us to get on the schedule.  If you haven't rented before, we will have to schedule a brief meeting to go over rental procedures and payment.  

 We are starting up some of our group training classes starting the week of  June 15th!  Click HERE to sign up online for those available classes!  As we move through the month of June, we will have more classes available for sign ups. We are starting to plan resuming group classes and will begin getting those classes up and open for registrations online on this page (scroll down to click on the class you're interested in). 

Animal Adoptions have started back by appointment only. FMI- click HERE .  We will continue to serve our community through the following services:  Animal surrenders, Foster family support, Animal Safety Net, Community Food Pantry needs, Shelter Animal care, and other emergency services to help our community's animal needs during this time.   Please consider donating to MHS in honor our the MHS Training Center.

We are starting to get back to helping you and your dog through positive and professional dog training soon.  Please check back frequently to see announcements about when group classes will be back in session.  Keep up with us at the MHS Training Center Facebook page to be the first to see when we are back open for group classes and to see announcements about other activities. 

Rachel Brostrom is back in the office a few days each week to offer lessons and be in the Training Center office.  Email is the very best way to connect with her: at this time. Voicemail messages may not be received or responded to at the Training Center extensions until further notice (things are still a bit crazy here). 

Thank you for all of your support, and we look forward to seeing you and your dog soon!
