In Person Puppy Class
Milwaukee Campus

Thank you for your interest in our Puppy Class at the Wisconsin Humane Society Milwaukee Campus located at 4500 W. Wisconsin Avenue!

This date is the start date of a six-week class. Puppy Classes meet for 50 minutes every week on the same day and time for 6 weeks. There will be NO CLASS on Tuesday, August 13 and August 20.

This class is for dogs 4 months and under.

Our experienced instructors make training your dog a fun and rewarding experience for people AND dogs!  In this class, we will work on building the foundation for handler focus, coming when called and loose leash walking. We will also work on providing positive socialization experiences with novel objects, spaces, people and other puppies. Each week we will allow time to discuss and offer support on common training challenges such as potty training, chewing, mouthing, and exuberant or fearful behaviors.

To prepare you and your dog for class, please complete the following steps before the first class:

Vaccinations: All puppies need to be current on Distemper and Bordetella (kennel cough) vaccines before the first class. Be sure to bring your dog's vaccination records with you to the first class! Please check your records because even if you adopted from us, you may not have all the vaccinations needed for class. Dogs will not be able to participate in class without proper vaccination records - no exceptions.

Social dogs only, please! Dogs that have shown any prior aggression to other dogs or people are NOT allowed in the group class setting under any circumstances (including if you already paid for the class). Aggression cannot be addressed in this venue; you will not get the attention you deserve and it puts others at risk. Please click here to learn more about private training options to get the best behavior treatment for your companion. If you are uncertain whether our classes will meet your expectations, you are welcome to sit in on a class (without your dog) before you pay. Just give us a call - 414-431-6173!

Two adults per dog may attend class (we will send you home with handouts for each exercise and email video links as needed for additional support).


Questions? Uncertain if this class will meet your expectations? Please reach out to Samantha Steinbring at!
