Ask the Dog Trainer Discussion Group

First Monday of every month

Whether or not they come to us from a shelter, our four-legged friends can sometimes exhibit challenging behaviors that require proper training in order to be understood and successfully resolved. Dealing with these behaviors doesn’t necessarily come naturally to humans. We invite you to bring your questions and receive educated advice and helpful tips on dog behavior!
