Tips from the Trainer
It is always exciting to bring home a new pet, especially one that has just been adopted from a rescue agency, shelter, or adoption center. New pets need to have the​ rules established as quickly as possible. Everything from house breaking, crate training, and nuisance behavior could come up while they adjust and settle in to their new home. The good news? These can all be easily addressed with training and patience.

On this page you will find websites to certain behaviors that have been accredited by our dog trainer, Karen Owens. With these tips you can easily adjust your pet'​s behavior. If you've just adopted a new pet and you want to make sure that the transition from shelter to home is easy and stress-free, check out the "Bringing Your Shelter Dog Home" page!
