Dog Training

What puppies and dogs experience has a huge impact on their behavior-especially if these experiences happen when a puppy is young. Many behavior problems can be prevented with early socialization and positive, consistent training during puppyhood and adolescence.

Having clear structure and boundaries for your canine companion is also important. Your canine needs to know what is allowed, and you need to know how to portray the rules in a clear way so there can be mutual understanding.

Positive outlets for energy are necessary for every dog on a daily basis. The right mix of physical and mental exercise will help your dog be a better companion.

The Coulee Region Humane Society is dedicated to helping owners and their canine companions through individual counseling as well as a classroom environment. We offer support for you to help develop a solid relationship using positive training techniques.

We look forward to helping you and your dog.
