Nearly 100% of dogs surrendered to shelters are given up within three months of being in a home. Educating potential adopters about what to expect before bringing an animal home is crucial to a successful adoption. Equipping rescue and shelter personnel and volunteers/fosters with the resources to provide basic obedience training is another way to set up a companion animal for a successful transition into a new home.

Paw It Forward organizes workshops and seminars for rescue volunteers, foster homes and the general public.

Our workshops focus on force-free training and behavior modification, steps to resolve basic training problems such as leash walking skills, house soiling, and pet/kid safety.
