Approximately 25% of dogs euthanized in shelters throughout the nation (around one million annually) are dogs that have been surrendered by their owners. The excuses can vary from “I'm moving” to “My dog is sick”, and a substantial number of dogs are surrendered because their human companions become impatient with their dog's behavior.
Adopting an animal is a lifelong commitment, and there are easy resolutions to these issues that can preserve the human-animal bond. Keep your family pet, eliminate unnecessary euthanasia, and easily solve behavioral problems by:
- Spaying and neutering
- Taking your pet to the vet to ensure that there are no health issues
- Training and socializing

The Benji Method: Teach Your Dog To Do What Benji Does in the Movies
Written by Joe Camp, the writer and director of all five Benji movies and all of Benji's television programs, The Benji Method is a non-regulation training program that dispels the notion that training your dog must be difficult, or must be done by an expert, or that you need a PhD in animal psychology to even try. It's fun to read or watch and fun to work with, and the program captures the spirit of how movie training with Benji is approached with exercises dog lovers can truly enjoy with their dog.
