Endorsed Trainers

ARF is a group of volunteers that endeavors to provide the best care possible  or our rescues during their time in foster care AND after they are adopted.

One of the ways in which we have reduced the revolving door syndrome of returned dogs that so many shelters/groups face is to REQUIRE all adopters to attend training classes.

If a dog is adopted in the London, Ontario, area, training classes are INCLUDED in the adoption fee.

“Awesome Dogs” is our trainer of choice in London.

If a dog is adopted by families that live too far away to attend weekly classes with Awesome Dogs, training classes at the adopter’s expense are a mandatory requirement of a canine adoption. Below is a list of facilities that ARF volunteers have researched and shown to endorse and practice the form of training ARF endorses: positive reinforcement.
