Bringing a shelter or rescue dog home is exciting but often there are behaviors that weren’t evident during your visit.  Many people adopt a dog and within a short time they realize they need a trainer.  Barking, anxiety, crate training, jumping on people, pulling on the leash, chewing, barging through doors, won’t come when called…the list is long of undesirable behaviors that either landed them in the shelter or they may have developed at the shelter.  Also, many trainers will have “proofed” the dogs around cats, children, and in public places so you can be specific in your search criteria. 

At www.adoptatraineddog.com we’re trying to take the guesswork out of your next rescue or shelter dog.  You can find the dog that you’ve been looking for and you don’t have to suffer through the unwanted behaviors. 

There are trainers all across the country that are working with shelters and rescues to help save dogs’ lives so check back often as we continue to grow.
