Happy Paws Puppy training is currently available to all VBSPCA adopters who have adopted a puppy within the last 12 months. Our training schedule offers a Basic class for puppies up to 6 months of age and an Advanced class for puppies between 6 and 12 months of age. Classes are offered as sessions, and adopters will select the date and time of the week that works best for their schedule. Please note that whichever day and time you choose will be the same day and time for each of your 6 training sessions. This allows our training staff to move forward with the curriculum while keeping everyone on the same page, ensuring a successful experience for both puppies and parents. We launch a new phase of classes every few weeks so you won’t have to wait to long to get your training started. For information on our winter schedule or to sign up for a class, email
