Oh, Behave

Kitty quandaries or canine conundrums? We can help.


All in person classes are back in session and are posted on our dog training page. If you are having trouble with your canine (or feline) friend, Behavior & Training has a number of 1-on-1 services to help (private training, consultations, and virtual consultations). Please email ohbehave@marinhumane.org for the quickest response or leave a message at 415-506-6280 and we will help you get set up for these services — and check out our online cat workshops or learn more about consultations.

Need 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.

Animal Behavior Advice Lines

Our behavior advice lines are staffed by behavior specialists who’ll help you try to solve your pet’s issues, whether your kitty is “thinking outside the (litter) box” or your dog is struggling with an addiction (to counter surfing). Occasionally, we’ll ask you to come in for a consult, and sometimes we’ll visit you and your best friend at your home.
