Pet Behavior

Mission Statement for Behavior and Training Helping To Create Forever Homes

The Behavior and Training Department provides an enriching environment for the shelter animals as well as ongoing support through out the life of your pet. We focus on evaluating incoming animals to make the best possible matches for a life long home. We maintain the human- animal bond through exercise and socialization with each animal. Through our training classes, we provide direction and support for newly adopted dogs as well as continued encouragement for long time dog owners. We also offer behavior advice through telephone calls, email and private behavior consultations. It is our goal to keep people and pets together by offering the necessary support and by reducing frustrations that can occur when pets and people aren’t speaking the same language. One of the most effective methods is learning basic obedience and handling skills.
