Webinar Speaker Series

In 2022 we're delighted to be hosting nationally (and internationally!) known experts for our free webinars. We are especially excited to use this funding to highlight voices that are often underrepresented in dog training, including Black, Indigenous, and People of Color.

Veterinary Behavior Support

Some dogs benefit from behavioral medications- which means consulting with veterinary behaviorists. This expert care is (understandably!) expensive, so we're offering financial assistance to clients in need.


If you're working with us and need financial aid to visit a vet behaviorist, email us at

Spanish-Speaking Pilot Program

We believe that folks who speak Spanish deserve access to dog behavior and training support. We're on a mission to better understand Austin's Spanish speakers, finding out what they need and how to provide access. We're looking for a paid bilingual coordinator to make this happen!
