Dog Tips from Dogtown

The Best Friends Animal Society is the nation’s largest no-kill sanctuary, and its remarkable trainers have turned around dogs that others have given up on, helping them live more fulfilling lives and find their forever homes. These trainers build strong, trusting relationships with the dogs through positive reinforcement strategies in training and exercise, strategies you can learn by reading their new book Dog Tips from DogTown.
