An Award-Winning Non-ProfitYour Dog's Friend is a 501c3 non-profit organization whose goal is to help keep dogs out of shelters by educating and supporting their humans. 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.
We have experienced trainers who use only science-based, force-free training methods in manners, behavior, sports, and play classes.
We run free workshops to teach you all about dogs – even yours.
We are here for you. We will help you with your concerns.
Why positive training?Other local trainers will tell you that your dog needs "correction."
Our instructors understand the science of canine behavior and apply humane and effective techniques to train your dog.
Best of all? It's fun.
No chains. No prongs. No shocks. Not here.
We want dog parents to know as much as possible about their dogs. The more humans know, the better chance the dog has for a happy life in their forever home.
So our workshops are free – including guidance for new adopters and presentations on behavior, training, and health issues.
