The key to a happy life with your dog? Training.
Behavior is one of the top reasons dogs are surrendered to Heartland. We are partnering with GoodPup on the mission to help every dog and dog parent live their best lives together.
GoodPup has created training that is effective, affordable, and rewarding. GoodPup training is 1–1, at-home, on your schedule, with trainers ready to help 24/7.
A week of private training with GoodPup costs the same as a single group class at most pet stores.
For some shelter dogs, finding a home is just the beginning of their journey. That’s why we’ve created a canine scholarship fund to provide low-cost and no-cost training for dogs adopted from our shelter. You can help a shelter dog make their new home a forever home by donating to our new scholarship fund. This fund will be used to cover scholarships for GoodPup training subscriptions, giving adopters the tools they need to make these dogs’ transitions successful, as well as support the ongoing one-on-one work in the shelter to help these dogs during their stay.
Your donations will help shelter dogs get the skills they need to succeed.
This scholarship was created in honor of Bojangles, who lived at Heartland for 7 months while waiting for his forever home. During that time, he earned a special place in the hearts of all our staff and volunteers. Training and enrichment were essential to caring for Bojangle’s mental and emotional health while he waited for his new family to find him. Training also gave Bojangles the skills to be successful once adopted.
