HOUSTON – Training a dog from a shelter or rescue group isn’t all that different than training any other dog. What might be different is the individual dog’s learning history and life experience. Keep in mind, our dogs are always learning, so your dog has probably picked up some skills (perhaps not all desirable) along the way. He might also have some experience (or lack thereof) that will affect his behavior in your home.
