Dear MHS Training Center Fans and Friends

UPDATE-  July 15th, 2020:

 We are currently in session for some group training classes and have new sessions open for enrollment!  Click HERE to sign up online for those available classes!  As we move through the month of July, we will have more classes available for sign ups. We are starting to plan resuming additional group classes in the Fall, and will begin getting those classes up and open for registrations online on this page soon (scroll down to click on the class you're interested in). 

We are continuing 1-on-1 private 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:  training@humanecommunity.org 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.  

Animal Adoptions have started back in our Adoption Center by appointment only. FMI- click HERE .  We are continuing to serve our community through the following services:  Animal surrenders, Foster family support, Animal Safety Net, Community Food Pantry needs, Feline Spay/Neuter clinics, Shelter Animal care, and other emergency services to help our community's animal needs during this time.  

We are getting 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 have new group classes starting and to see announcements about other Training Center 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:  training@humanecommunity.org at this time. Voicemail messages may not be received or responded to at the Training Center extensions (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!
