Pet Lovers

Here in Louisiana, pets are part of our lives as much as anything else. Let the Louisiana SPCA help you care for your pet! 

Behavior and Dog Training

At the Louisiana SPCA, our Training and Behavior team utilizes methods that are rooted in the sciences of animal learning and dog behavior to help you reach your behavior goals. From basic manners and advanced skills to fear and aggression, our trainers will help you build a positive, lasting relationship with your dog.

Our Canine Behavior Specialists offer a variety of courses suited to each dog's individual needs. Some dogs thrive in a group training environment where they can interact and socialize with other dogs while they learn obedience, while other dogs require one-on-one attention in private training sessions. Our trainers offer both group and private training options for dogs of all ages, in addition to training workshops for humans and their pets. We also offer puppy socials for you to start early with getting your dog accustomed to other dogs!
