From single-sessions to multi-week courses, Napa Humane can help!

Our goal is to help dog owners gain the skills to better communicate with their dogs and to teach dogs the skills they need to be better companions. Our classes focus on teaching both people and dogs skills that help us all live in harmony. Our variety of classes offer availability to both wallets and schedules!

What’s the difference between a Single-Session and a Course?

A Single-Session is a single class that focuses on a specific skill, more like a tutoring session. Our Single-Sessions are single, one-hour classes.

Our Single-Sessions repeat monthly to allow you the opportunity to repeat the course as often as you need. We understand that not every dog or family need to complete a full course. We also understand that some dogs need a little extra assistance with specific tasks while they’re masters at others. These Single-Sessions allow you and your dog to recover lost skills and level-up already-known skills. If your dog has attended the course before, your instructor will adjust your dog’s lessons for their skill set.

A Course is a multi-week class designed to build your dog’s skills at each class. Each week your dog will learn a new skill, building off of what they learned in the previous class. These Course Classes are typically four, five or six weeks in length.
