Dog Training Tips at the Southern Ocean County Animal Shelter

A Chatsworth based dog training expert will be available at the Southern Ocean County Animal Shelter in Manahawkin Saturday, January 22 for questions and tips.

My pound puppy-CymruAccording to the Human Society of the United State, 6 to 8 million dogs and cats find themselves at shelters each year.  About half are euthanized because there aren't enough good homes.

Martha Windisch a certified dog trainer, living in Chatsworth, thinks most behaviors that cause people to abandon their pets are easily solved by training and socializing.

The Southern Ocean County Animal Shelter is located on Hay Road in Manahawkin, just off Recovery Road.  The trainer will be available from 1pm until 4pm.  

Dogs and cats will also be available for petting, loving and adopting!

Hi Laura:

I agree with that dog trainer that most behaviors that cause people to abandon their pets can be solved by training.

And I hope a lot of them get petted, loved, and adopted!

Thanks for the publicity!  We had a great crowd of people today at the shelter for the Ask a Trainer event in celebration of National Train Your Dog Month.  I answered training questions for 3 hours straight.  Many intelligent questions were asked on the part of the dog owners who attended.  It was really neat that some of the attendees had dogs that they had adopted from the S. Ocean Shelter.   After answering questions, I gave a training session to Blizzard a wonderful blue Pit Bull.  Blizzard loves to learn and he is getting good at his hand signals and his waits and stays.  His come has improved immensely, but needs more work.

I forgot to mention that Blizzard is a shelter dog looking for the right forever home.  He's a very active dog so a potential adopter would have to be ready to provide guidance, training and management.

Martha-Thanks so much for what you're doing to promote shelter pups, kitties, and all animals in need of a good home!  Blizzard sounds like he's going to make someone's life complete!  If you'd like to send a picture of him or any announcements, I'll help spread the word!  Again, thanks for all you do!
