Learn how our dog training programs in Riverside, CA can help you and your pet meet your training goals.
Mary S. Roberts Pet Adoption Center offers training classes and resources to address a variety of needs for companion animals. Our training philosophy is based on the behavioral science concepts of positive reinforcement. Training your pet using these methods will not only help them learn new behaviors more quickly, it will also strengthen the bond you share.
Training is offered virtually and in person. Anyone is welcome to join our virtual classes, whether you’re a member of our local community or joining us from afar!

Geared towards teenaged pups practicing their dog-dog social skills in a safe and supervised setting, we offer Adolescent Playgroup!
Trainers narrate play and combine pups who are compatible playmates, monitoring carefully to make sure puppies are learning and having good experiences.
Puppy Kindergarten is designed to meet the training and socialization needs of pups that are under 5 months old. Owners and their pups learn to adapt to new people, dogs, environments, and experiences.
This is an introductory-level course that addresses training areas of immediate concern to dog owners.
