Animal Behavior College Students lend a helping hand by donating their time and skills to help train the dogs at a local Los Angeles Animal Shelter. Best Friends Animal Society is located just north of Los Angeles in Mission Hills, CA.
The Best Friends Animal Society has over 250 dogs on site and enjoys having a close relationship with Dog Training facilities who can lend a helping hand. Best Friends Animal Society Manager, Mike Harmon said “Since we opened this facility last year, we’ve wanted to work with dog training schools as a way to have … a regular source of trainers.”
One benefit to the students helping to train dogs at the Best Friends Animal Society is having a well established, proper facility to complete the 10 hours of volunteer time, for the Dog Training Certification Program.
Our friends at Best Friends are fantastic and we would like to extend a special thanks for opening the doors to our Dog Trainer Classroom Program Students, for what seems to be a win-win, for our students and the Best Friends facility.
Great job students! Thanks for going that extra step to make the visits during the semester, a wonderful experience for the dogs, and for Best Friends Animal Society.

Dogs are just like people: mostly well-adjusted and a little neurotic… and sometimes equal amounts all at once! Accepting this fundamental conflict is part of being a pet owner. If your dog has their “less than perfect” moments that cause you a smile or a sigh… no worries. All dogs do. However, if your dog demonstrates more serious behaviors that cause you or anyone nearby to feel fear, uncertainty or Continue reading
