So you want to adopt a foster/train program dog?
We are working with shelter dogs. Some have been returned, surrendered, or placed on the euthanasia list. These dogs come to us as good candidates for the program because of their need for training to fix behavioral issues.
These dogs are not, and will never be perfect. Dogs are NOT robots. Even with training, a dog's personality and quirks will not change. Many behaviors can be maintained or managed, but we typically work with older dogs that have been set in their ways for many years. Our program is designed to enhance the lives of these dogs, and although we strive to fix every problem behavior a dog presents, some behaviors may persist (usually in extreme cases) despite training. Adopters must be willing to love and work with these dogs regardless.
We offer two follow-up lessons for any questions, concerns, or training goals that an adopter might have! It is the adopters responsibility to schedule the follow-up lessons within six months of the adoption date.
We ask that our adopters contact us if they need to return the dog. Dogs cannot be rehomed or returned elsewhere per our contract. Although the dog required to be returned to us, it is mandatory that you use the two follow up lessons prior to surrendering.
