HSTV offers puppy training

The Humane Society of the Tennessee Valley is now offering puppy training classes. Certified trainers help pet owners with housetraining, minding manners and all the other issues that come along with puppy parenthood.

Thousands of animals are surrendered to shelters every year because of behavior problems, says HSTV. Through a grant from the Pedigree Foundation, HSTV will now be able to offer more solutions to the community that supports the mission of Adopt, Spay, Keep.


Classes will meet in our the training center located at 6717 Kingston Pike in Knoxville. All dogs are required to be on flat buckle or martingale collars for training. Classes can be group or private; cost ranges from $20-$100.

Don’t have a puppy? The HSTV adoption center is open Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday 11am-7pm and Friday, Saturday, Sunday from 11am-6pm.
