Pet First Aid and Disaster Response

Saturday, June 11, 9 a.m. – 1 p.m.

Would you know what to do if your dog suddenly choked on a bone? What if your cat ate a toxic substance, like chocolate? Do you have a plan for your pet in the event you need to evacuate your family from your home? These topics, and more, will be addressed in our Pet First Aid and Disaster Response workshop as we discuss how to provide temporary, urgent care to cats and dogs until they can reach a veterinary or emergency clinic.

We want your feedback! Let us know the types of programming you would like to see and we will contact you as new offerings are scheduled. Just take this quick survey.

Dog Training

We recommend positive, dog-friendly training methods, focusing on good manners in the real world and socialization. While Seattle Humane is not currently offering dog training classes, we have provided some training resources below, along with ideas for preventing or addressing behavior problems.  

We’ve put together a list of local options for Dog Training Group Classes and Private Lessons. 

We’ve also partnered with GoodPup to offer one complimentary week of training to Seattle Humane adopters and community members. Sign up here! GoodPup will also make a donation to Seattle Humane for every person who signs up for the complimentary week and continues training past the free trial.
