Hope2K9 adoptable dogs come from all sorts of backgrounds; often surrendered due to behavior issues, but then transformed into the best possible versions of themselves after completing our training program. Our program consists of basic obedience foundation, state of mind training to emphasize the dog’s ability to be calm on command and make good default choices, as well as basic manners training (no jumping on people, rushing doorways, stealing food, barking at guests, begging, whining, etc.).
We use remote collar training as a first choice training tool, which repeatedly supports our nervous or insecure dogs in gaining confidence and clarity, while also resolving attitudinal issues present in the headstrong or entitled dogs who seeks to engage only when they want to. Nothing worse than your dog suddenly becoming deaf to your call when you’re in the middle of a park and it’s time to head home!
Occasionally we will receive a dog in for adoption that was previously trained for one of our Home2K9 Dog Training clients, but the owner is no longer able to care for their dog, and wants to know it will be placed somewhere with adequate training to honor the dog’s skills. This is an amazing opportunity for some lucky adopter, since so much about this available dog is already known. Unlike adopting from a shelter, with the known history and comprehensive training in place, we can empower you to speak the same language as you get to know your new dog. We are committed to helping you provide clear leadership and advocacy, and truly experience freedom and peace of mind with your rescued companion.
