Shelter Dog Class

Nearly every canine resident at AWS participates in Shelter Dog Obedience Class. Led by a team of dedicated volunteers, our canine trainers lead the dogs through class, teaching basic commands, agility and more.

These bi-weekly classes keep the dogs engaged, enriched and challenged while they wait for their new homes. Observing the dogs in class allows us to learn more about their personalities and capabilities, which we share with their new families. Teaching and reinforcing positive behaviors while at AWS sets the dogs’ off on the right foot with their new families. We encourage all adopters to continue their dog’s training, especially with classes right here at AWS.
