Are you a fanatic for learning more about behavior and training?  CATCH courses and workshops go beyond basic obedience to help students work with dogs that have behavioral issues. We find the problem-solving process to be fascinating: from basic issues like jumping, pulling, barking, and house training to learning about the more advanced challenges like fear and aggression cases. Many of our students turn their passion for dogs into newfound skills and use them to work with dogs that otherwise would not have the easiest time finding a forever home. Get in touch with us to learn more!

    Wow!! This is great information…I just went to my local animal shelter to become a volunteer…came home and saw this email. Very helpful-thanks!

      Thanks, Karen, that’s fantastic that you are volunteering! All the best to you and the dogs. 🙂

    This is terrific information. I also just started to volunteer at a shelter walking the dogs. The instant halter will be a great help. These dogs are so eager to get a walk – I’ve been concerned about the pulling. I will demonstrate this to the person who gave our orientation. Thank you so much!

    • David Muriello says:

      Our pleasure, Joyce. The dogs are lucky to have you!

    This is such a great idea! I’ve recently registered as a foster for dogs whose owners are unwell. Will make sure to remember this tip when my first foster pooch arrives.
