Dog Training Education Month (Thursday, Feb. 1- Wednesday, Feb. 28)
Training has been shown to be the single most important factor in keeping a dog in his or her forever home and strengthens the bond between owner and pet. S & D K-9 Rehabilitation and Think Like a Dog both offer a free training session for dogs adopted from the Tri-County Animal Shelter. You can also inquire about additional training at your local PetSmart or Petco. Celebrate the month by signing up your furry friend.
