We have manners, puppy, behavior, sports, play, and kids’ classes, taught by experienced professionals who understand dog behavior and use only force-free, positive training. Force-free training is effective, builds trust and cannot cause pain, aggression, or fear in dogs.
Training can be fun!
WHO WE ARE
Your Dog’s Friend is an award-winning non-profit whose goal is to keep dogs from being turned into shelters by educating and supporting their humans. We offer:
- positive, force-free training classes
- free behavior and training workshops
- behavior advice and referrals
We are here to give guidance and support.
We believe that fewer dogs will be given up to shelters if we can help people understand what their dogs need and how their dogs learn.
So, we have workshops and webinars that are free – guidance for new adopters and presentations on all sorts of behavior, training, and health issues.
Some of our previous workshops are online for you to view any time.
Our newsletters include dog behavior articles, upcoming free workshops, new classes, training tips, and more!
Join over 7,000 dog lovers just like you.
We never share or sell your personal information. Never.
ADVICE & REFERRALS
We know you have questions and concerns.
So, we have a Training Coordinator available to help you with training class selection, behavior issues, and resources.
Our website and newsletter are full of helpful information, too.
We are here for you.
WHY IT MATTERS
Your neighbors and friends may still be recommending chokes, prongs, dominance – all sorts of outdated training and behavior methods that can actually cause behavior problems to develop.
Attending our workshops and classes, reading our website and newsletter, and asking for help when you need it can go a long way toward helping your dog become your lifetime companion.
