We are pleased to announce that we will now be offering obedience training classes here at the Animal Protection Center!

This class will help you build a solid bond with your dog while you learn how to teach new behaviors. All ages and breeds of dog are welcome! The class will teach and expand on commands such as sit, down, come, leave it, drop it, stay, and loose leash walking. You will learn teaching methods that do not require force or coercion, helping to establish a loving and rewarding partnership for life. The methodology will also prepare you to address problem behaviors such as jumping, nipping, barking, etc.

The class runs for six one hour-long sessions, meeting weekly. We are currently booking for the Saturday, March 1st class at 10:00 am. Cost is $75, with a $40 deposit to secure a spot in the class. Please find attached an application for the training class: Obedience Training Application If you would like to attend, please return the completed application, along with payment, to:

Gene’s career in training and behavior modification started over a decade ago with his own rescue dogs’ behavior issues. His passion to help his own dogs brought him to the MSPCA. Here he served as an apprentice while attending Mount IdaCollege to attain his Canine Behavior and Training Certificate.  After graduation, he taught group classes and worked with shelter dogs. He went on to become the Behavior and Training Coordinator for the Brockton MSPCA. He continues his education through seminars and classes, while also running his pet related business, Muddy Paws Obedience. Gene works with multiple rescue groups and owners to modify existing ‘problem’ behaviors and teach new tricks.
