“SPCA classes are worth their weight in gold! They showed me how to help my dog “Walter” face his fears and enjoy life. Last weekend we walked by a big dog on the trail and for the first time, no drama. Walter gave a little ‘woof’ and we were on our way. Wow!!” —Trisch B.

“We adopted brother and sister dogs and they have already taken the Out and About and Agility for Fun classes. The Dog Socials have been tremendous too—we’re on our third one and we’re going to keep going to them. SPCA staff is so helpful and our dogs continue to make steady progress. It’s more about training us humans than the dogs!”—Mark L.
