Boxers and Buddies

Dog Training Classes

You will be required to attend at least one 5-8 week long professionally run training class with your new friend within 4 months of adopting.

According to a national study ( 95.3% of all dogs relinquished to shelters by their owners had NO formal obedience training. 47.3% were relinquished for behavioral problems that could be corrected through training and education. The studies conducted by the National Council on Pet Population also showed that there is a strong association between owners that adopt a dog from a shelter and owners that give up that dog for behavioral reasons. The study showed that the majority of owners of problem-behavior dogs own these animals less than 3 months prior to relinquishment. Thus, there is a window of opportunity that provides guidance and help, but it is a very narrow window of less than 4 months. Boxers and Buddies believes in finding a permanent home for their dogs – families that are loving, dedicated, responsible and willing to work to keep an animal as part of their family. It is for this reason that the training requirement exists.

We offer and recommend positive reinforcement dog training classes to help set you and your pet up for success.

Boxers and Buddies adoption counselors are available to you by phone and e-mail, free of charge, for the life of your adopted pet. We are also gathering an extensive Adopter Resource Library online with great information for new pet owners, which will be online soon.
