About two million dogs a year are euthanized in shelters – 65 million pounds of dead dogs a year.
Most of these dogs are healthy young adults that were acquired in haste by young people with unstable lives.
Too often these dogs have had little or no training.
To put it another way, more healthy dogs are killed for LACK of training every year than are actually trained by all the professional dog trainers in this nation.
So what we say and DO in the world of dog training matters at LOT – at least to the dogs.
