Behavioral and Training Resources
The following websites provide many resources and recommendations for dog training and behavior. They are hosted and maintained by organizations outside of GPA. These useful resources are an opportunity for learning more about dogs, dog behavior, and methods for addressing issues that may arise within your pack. We wish to provide these resources so that adopters can learn more about their dog(s) and gain knowledge that can improve the relationship between dogs and their people.
GPA MN does not support or have any affiliation with these external resources, and the points of view and recommendations represented are exclusively those of the owners/hosts of the individual sites. Please know that not every recommendation will work for every individual dog, breed, or situation, and results may vary. Please do not put yourself or your dog into any position that you feel is dangerous to you, your family, or your pack. Directly contacting a professional behaviorist about your specific situation is always best.
