DOG TRAINING: Pups Learn Important Lessons


At the Animal Rescue League, a training program is helping dogs learn important lessons.

It’s called the Canine Good Citizen Testing Program.

Dogs learn skills like walking without distraction and obedience in public places with other dogs.

All breeds are welcomed and the training costs just $5 dollars per animal.

For every pit bull that goes through the test, the Animal Rescue League receives $150 dollars towards their spay and neuter program.

“I encourage dogs to get this training so they’re not a part of the stereotype of certain breeds,” said Gloria Shipman, an employee with the Animal Rescue League.

Dogs receive a tag on their collar for completing the training.

It occurs four times each year with the next session taking place in February.
