Adopting A Dog – What Everyone Should Know
Are you considering adopting a dog or have a newly adopted dog? Adoption is a great way to help a dog in need, however these dogs often come with “emotional baggage” that factor into their behavior in your home. This one hour session will help you learn:

  • Why a dog’s previous “life” is important to you
  • How the source of your dog plays a role in its transition
  • How a rescue dog’s breed and age should be considered in your decision to adopt
  • How to make the transition into your home easier on everyone

Class is taught by Brenda Belmonte, CPDT-KA, owner of Two Paws Up Dog Training and a Certified Professional Dog Trainer offering personal instruction for dog owners through the use of positive reinforcement training. This builds a cooperative relationship between the dog and owner. She is Lake Forest and Lake Bluff’s trusted local dog trainer!

Gorton Community Center will take and may use photos and videos from this event for its promotional purposes. Your attendance indicates your consent to the above.
