At Saving Great Animals, we recommend that all of our new adopters do some training with their new furry friends. Not only helps it establish a great bond, but it also help the dog to understand what is expected of him or her in the new home.
If you are looking for online resources to help with basic dog training or dog health related issues, please visit PreventativeVet.com for an excellent range of well-researched methods and advice.
If you are in need of in-person training support, we recommend only Positive Training techniques and do not support the use of physical corrections, prong collars, scolding or punishment. Dogs learn best through positive reinforcement of the desired behavior.
We recommend several wonderful trainers and encourage you to contact them:
