Dog Obedience Classes
Dog obedience classes are offered each September/October and April/May/June, as weather permits.
Classes are taught by Bob & Debbie Martinsen (former Seattle Police Dept. dog handlers) on Mondays for five weeks. Debbie recently received advanced training with legendary Dog Whisperer, Cesar Millan.
Dates & Time: The Spring obedience classes are set up! They will be held each Monday starting April 24th and ending May 22nd. 4:30 pm or 6 pm classes are still available.
Location: Benewah County Fairgrounds, in front of the Judd building. In case of rain, class will be inside the building.
Cost of the five sessions: $40 per dog
Participants should have their dog on a choke chain with a 6 ft. long leash.
To sign up for the obedience classes, please call the Shelter at (208) 245-7387.
Hope's Haven Animal Shelter is requesting volunteers to take Shelter dogs to the classes. Experience has shown dogs with manners are much more adoptable. Often dogs are adopted "out from under us" during these obedience training classes. The training helps people know more about dogs too!
Sit. Stay. Good dog!
