Dog Tips

PawsCo is unique in its commitment to incorporating a training component into the rescue process. While the PawsCo Training Team provides training support and resources for Fosters & Foster animals, we also work to educate the public about proper training techniques and provide informational resources so everyone can better understand their furry family members. While the links on this page are a great place to start, they should be used for informational purposes only. PawsCo does not guarantee the information provided on this website.

We encourage owners to ask a qualified professional with any questions, and remember to only use positive reinforcement techniques. Find a list of our Preferred Training Partners here.
