The Santa Cruz SPCA offers a FREE Training Discussion group once a month with a local reputable trainer to help dog owners with behavioral issues or training questions. This small-group setting is perfect for people who have newly adopted their first animal or people who have adopted and are experiencing problems they’ve never dealt with before. Shelter animals can many times exhibit challenging behaviors and may be in need of a great deal of training. This hour long information session can prove to be invaluable in making sure your adoption is a success!

Bring all of your questions and receive educated advice, helpful hints and expert behavior evaluation.These sessions are for people only, so please leave your dog at home. Jumping up, barking, pulling on the leash, etc. comes naturally to dogs and we're here to help you learn what to do! Reservations are Required.

When: Once monthly (upcoming dates to be announced soon!)
Where: Santa Cruz SPCA Capitola Mall Adoption Center & Gift Shop, 1855 41st Avenue Capitola, CA 95010 (in the Target wing)
