THE PURPOSE OF HOPE2K9 FOUNDATION

Hope2K9’s primary mission is to prevent dogs from needing to enter shelters and rescues, by providing education and support to dog owners who are struggling. We believe that the best place for your badly behaved dog, is in your home with training to resolve his/her behavior issues – which consistently point to a bigger picture imbalance in your life that you will likely learn to correct through helping your dog.

WHEN WE HELP OUR DOGS, WE HELP OURSELVES

In the event that a dog must be rehomed, our adoptable dogs have come from shelters, other rescues, or have been surrendered by owners who are no longer able to care for them and/or address their behavior issues. Some of our adoptable dogs may be special needs medically, or have other challenges such as deafness, blindness, paralysis, amputations, illness and injury.

We do not discriminate against special needs dogs, but do have limits to our resources for care and adoptability of such dogs. Occasionally we will receive a dog in for adoption that was previously trained for one of our private 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, we can empower you to speak the same language as your dog, provide clear leadership and advocacy, and truly experience freedom and peace of mind from the start. Our program is funded primarily by the boarding services we provide, which are tax deductible, and available to all dog breeds, ages, and behavior issues.

If you’re interested in training for your dog, please complete a contact form and we will be in touch with you right away for a FREE in person evaluation or phone consultation.
