Private Obedience Training



The Jacksonville Humane Society’s private training program employs the use of operant conditioning, classical conditioning and relationship education. Our programs prohibit techniques that cause pain or fear for the dogs (no choke chains or pinch collars). We set up each training situation for errorless learning.


We like to say, “Cooperation, not domination.” As a JHS client, you’ll learn to establish appropriate behavior in your pet with reward-based training. We’ll teach you how to communicate your leadership and how to discourage inappropriate behavior.



Who: Dogs of all ages


Cost: $50.00/Hour. Nothing is collected in advance. It is a pay as you go system.
