Workshops and Classes
The Dumb Friends League Animal Behavior department is staffed by experienced counselors who offer assistance with cats, dogs, rabbits and other small mammals. The department has been in existence since 1991 and has served as a model for the national Pets for Life program, a training curriculum for shelter professionals offered through The Humane Society of the United States.
Often, kittens brought to our shelters didn’t receive proper training as infants. To help keep young kittens in their homes, we offer Kitten Kindergarten to ensure that they start off on the right paw. To help adult cats in their home we offer Clicks & Tricks. Our classes focus on building relationships through clicker training and teaching them the basic skills needed to be well-mannered family members.
We also offer a behavior series for those wanting to learn more about cat and dog behavior.
