Kitty quandaries or canine conundrums? We can help.

Teaching your new pup some manners? Want to teach your kitty fun tricks? Ready to hit the agility course with your dog? Marin Humane is here to help!

We offer specialized training classes, private lessons, and behavior consultations for cats, dogs, and even small critters like guinea pigs and bunnies. Our award-winning Behavior & Training department staff includes more than 20 instructors and behavior consultants and more than 50 volunteer assistants who will also educate and entertain you with our weekly blog posts.

All in-person dog group classes are posted on our dog training page. If you’re having trouble with your cantankerous, carefree, or clingy canine, Behavior & Training has a number of one-on-one services to help — including private training, behavior consultations, and virtual training!

For your feisty, fragile, or frisky feline, check out our online cat workshops or learn more about cat consultations. Our feline advice line is staffed by specialists who’ll help you solve your pet’s issues, whether your kitty is “thinking outside the (litter) box” or your cat is trying a new sport (like counter surfing). If you need more support with your furry friend, we’ll point you to the right resources.
