Puppies and Dog Training

I’ve now been volunteering at TAILS Humane Society for nearly a month and have logged 15 hours of service. I am going twice a week: Wednesdays are “Puppy Class” where I bring an adoptable puppy to train and socialize with other pups and Saturdays where I do dog enrichment and obedience training class.

A few picks and a video from my first puppy class:

I am working with a Louisiana Catahoula Leopard Dog mix named Jack Sparrow. He is the dog on the left in the photo below.

I am working with several dogs but this is Baxter, a Treeing Walker Coonhound mix. He is four and is a wonderful dog but has high anxiety from being in the shelter.

I took him for a long run/walk on the bike path nearby the shelter and then worked on some basic commands (like sit and down). He did extremely well and was happy when we took a break in the yard.

If you need help finding the right dog for your family, let me know! Even if you aren’t in northern Illinois I can assist you in finding the perfect dog who wants to find a forever home.
