For Keeps

Thinking of getting a dog? Why not consider adopting your next canine companion? Astrid Nicole, our Etsy shop and ArtFire Studio's namesake, was adopted by us in 2006 at the age of two. We could tell by her manners and temperament that she had been loved and trained, but some shelter dogs aren't as fortunate.  An article at Petfinder.com states "Did you know 84% of shelters and rescue groups see pets relinquished because of issues that could have been resolved with the proper training and resources?" Don't let this happen to your new dog. For some advice from a Certified Pet Dog Trainer, read about the Train FurKeeps Program  all to comemerate January being  National Train Your Dog Month.

What a great blog, and so true..all it takes is a little bit of our time to have a happy well behaved pup.No dog wants to be ill behaved..they need direction and training..and that makes them happy too and less stress on them.Training is all part of interacting with them..it's fun and great exercise for the brain and body for humans and dogs too.
