Training for Animal Shelters

Does your shelter need to increase revenue?

Are you concerned about your adoptability and return numbers?

Have you considered adding a Certified Professional Dog Trainer to your staff?

Shelter training and enrichment programs are highly successful in reducing signs of stress and anxiety, while encouraging human bonding and promoting calm, predictable behaviour.  This allows the dog to not only present their best-self to potential adopters but creates a positive and safe work environment for staff.    Animal Shelters with in-house Professional Dog Trainers have a proven history of increasing adopt-ability, reducing return rates, and improving the quality of life for dogs living within the kennel environment.  They also have the added benefit of increasing public awareness by offering training to the community, in additional to providing another revenue stream to better support the animals in care.
