The AHS Behavior Dept. is working hard to get the older puppies and adult dogs more adoptable. Our “Paws2Teach” classes enable us to socialize and train dogs on a weekly basis, and the dogs definitely improve with every lesson.
Here is volunteer Christy teaching Bear how to “settle” and accept petting calmly. This is such an important skill for dogs to know, and many simply don’t. Often, that’s why they ended up at the shelter to begin with!
I couldn’t do this important work without my P2T volunteers! I love you guys.
“The aim of life is to live, and to live means to be aware: joyously, drunkenly, serenely, divinely aware.” ~Henry Miller
