Teacher’s Pet is pilot program in partnership with the Fans of Williamson County Regional Animal Shelter. This program aims to encourage the successful adoption of some of the shelter’s longest-stay dogs by providing up to 5 FREE training sessions once the dog has been adopted.
There are 5 dogs in the Teacher’s Pet program to start, selected by shelter staff. All an adopter needs to do to take advantage of this wonderful opportunity is contact Every Dog Behavioral Training to make arrangements. The first training session is held virtually; further training sessions may be virtual or in-person, at the discretion of Every Dog.
Look for the Teacher's Pet logo on the select dogs' profiles. The dogs currently in this program are:
The shelter pays for a positive-reinforcement-based trainer to train select dogs in the shelter twice a week. This training helps the dogs learn good manners and makes their transition into a new home go more smoothly. Once adopted, the Honor Roll dogs' adopters may receive a free session with the trainer in order to learn what the dog has been taught through this program. Going forward, training may continue with the same trainer at a discounted rate.
If you're a positive-reinforcement-based trainer interested in participating in the Honor Roll program, email [email protected].
