Bark Busters To Help Shelter Dogs

Bark Busters Home Dog Training is proud to announce the kick-off of a new program designed to train volunteers at area shelters to work with adoptable dogs to help get them more “adoption-ready”.

The kick-off to this program begins on February 21, 2009, at 9:00 A.M. at the Houston Humane Society, 14700 Almeda Road, Houston, Tx. Connie Archer, behavioral therapist and trainer for Bark Busters, says, “We are very excited about this new program and the response we have had from the volunteers at Houston Humane. Our goal with this program is to make those shelter dogs even more appealing to the potential adopter by teaching the volunteers to work on some very basic skills with the dogs.” Instead of just getting the dogs out to run and play, volunteers will have the basic tools to be able to work with the dogs on basic commands, such as sit, down, sitting to have leash put on, and teaching the dogs to walk without pulling on the leash.
