Puppy Classes

Bring your Puppy to the HSNEGA for fun and engaging training classes! 

All Behavioral training classes offered at the HSNEGA are hosted by Sit.Happens of Athens, Georgia. All behavior classes use reward-based training techniques and we will teach you how to use a clicker for training.

Our Puppy Class is designed for puppies under 5 months of age and meets for consecutively one hour each week for four weeks. These classes are designed to provide essential socialization with people, other puppies and new places. We discuss normal puppy behavior such as mouthing, chewing and house training and introduce your puppy to important cues like sit, come and down.  Puppies DO NOT attend the first night of class!
