January 2nd through 18th
Volunteer Trainers will be available to give 45 minute to 1 hour basics training sessions for new adoptions. You can sign up and either a trainer will contact you to arrange a 1 on 1 session, small group session or an appointment time at the wrap up event January 18th.
WHY ARE WE DOING THIS?
Because ForceFree Oregon along with other ForceFree organizations around the world understand
that better relationships and trust with our canine companions begins with communication.
If we can help owners to communicate and understand their dogs better, we know
their dogs may be spared aversive training methods and tools in the future.
By giving the basics of modern,science based training methods, dog owners
can make informed decisions on training and tools such as collars and harness.
Support for new adoptions, especially shelter and rescue pals can help dog owners
handle unexpected behavioral issues, help cut down on returns / surrenders to shelters
and contribute to a dogs happy life. We do this to prevent the use of prong and shock collars on
dogs disguised as training. To inform our communities on the benefits of reward based, positive reinforcment
WE DO IT BECAUSE WE LOVE THEM TOO!
Spaces and availibility is limited. Available to new adoptions from Dec. 23rd to January 1st.
Dogs that are showing reactivity / agressive like behaviors towards other dogs, people, children
should schedule a 1 on 1 session and not attend the group events.
