Services for Animal Shelters and Rescues

Contract Temperament Testing

Let us come to your shelter or rescue and temperament test your dogs to help you place them in the right homes.  You can add on behavior modification plans to rehabilitate the dog in your care if you so desire.  Please contact us for pricing and availability.

Canine Enrichment Programs

Most animal shelters and rescue groups cannot afford behavior personnel on staff but kennel stress is a major cause of deterioration in canine behavior.  Contract us to evaluate the resources in your shelter or rescue and develop a canine enrichment program that will alleviate stress and make your dogs more "adoptable".  We can tailor a package to suit your needs and your budget.  

Staff Training

Do your staff or volunteers need a brush up in canine communication or other dog issues?  Animal shelters and rescue groups answer a lot of behavior questions when the public calls.  Be sure your staff and volunteers have the answers.  Let us help you help dogs.  

Possible topics include:

Common Training Questions Answered
What Behavior is Treatable?
Qualities of a Good Adopters

We are willing to give FREE staff training to 501(c) 3 shelters that are up to a 15 mile radius of Dallas twice a year.  Please contact us for details.

If you have a particular need that you would like to address, please let us know.  We'll let you know how we can help!  We love working with shelters and rescues!
