Training Pets and Saving Lives

According to a survey conducted by Petfinder.com, the largest online database of adoptable pets, approximately 84 percent of animal shelters and rescue groups see family pets returned to them because of behavioral issues that could have been resolved with the proper training and resources. Sadly, these adoptable pets almost always have a harder time finding forever homes because their behavior problems were left untreated.  In celebration of National Train Your Dog Month, Petfinder.com partnered with Andrea Arden from the Association of Pet Dog Trainers (APDT) to launch Train FurKeeps, a program designed to teach families easy training techniques and ultimately decrease the number of pets relinquished to shelters.
