Dakin’s One-on-One Behavior Consults – Dakin Humane Society is now offering one-on-one behavior consults and private dog training lessons at its Springfield location. Consultations can cover everything from smaller annoying behaviors such as barking to more serious behaviors such as separation anxiety or aggression. Private dog training classes are perfect for dogs who need to learn manners but may not thrive in a group class.
