The Bucks County SPCA provides one-on-one and group dog training classes to help people and pets get the most out of their relationship.

Currently available classes are listed below. More classes will be added so check back here or sign up for our emails to learn about new class availability.

One-on-one Dog Training


Private training with the Bucks County SPCA’s Director of Animal Behavior is available in-person at either shelter or online.

The cost is $60 per 30-minute session ($30 per 30-minute session for BCSPCA-adopted animals). These private sessions are a great way to work on specific issues you want to address with your pet.

Group Dog Training Classes


Affordable group classes are available for puppies, adolescent dogs, and more.

Classes follow a set curriculum and are designed for dogs who are people and animal friendly. If your dog is not comfortable around unfamiliar people or dogs, please contact us before signing up at behavior@buckscountyspca.org. If you are unsure which class best fits your needs please email and we can help you find the right class.
