Positive Motivation Dog Training Pamela Dennison believes that "if you don't have time to train your dog, get a stuffed animal!" And we would have to agree, since many dogs that end up in shelters are surrendered because they "misbehave" -- i.e., their owners have not bothered to train them. What approach is best? Pamela hosts classes and seminars both online and at her New Jersey facility. All dogs deserve the right to learn to be good citizens! This is an excellent site to help you get started!
