Classes with DogsDid you know that dogs who’ve received some obedience training are less likely to be surrendered to a shelter? To help train, and enrich the lives of our dogs, we run special group classes just for shelter dogs – everything from Adoption Academy™ (basic obedience) to Hollywood Hounds™ (tricks). Level 2 and higher volunteers may take shelter dogs through classes.
