So here is your chance to add a family member and start it off with some cool training. They are able to do this because of a grant from Two Seven Oh, Inc.

"We want to help educate those who adopt dogs from the shelter on the basics of dog training so they can continue to work with them. Local trainer Dave Brooks, of Calm Your Paws Dog Service, will give the lessons. Part of each session will be spent teaching the adopter how to bond with the dog and help it feel comfortable in their home.
