Need a Behavior Consultation?

Do you have a newly adopted pet? Undesirable behaviors (such as separation anxiety, jumpy or mouthy behavior) or potty training getting you down? We believe all animals have what it takes to be great pets, they may just need a little extra TLC and you may need a few training tips. Contact us for a behavior consultation!

School Programs

We partner with local schools to provide bite prevention and responsible pet ownership education, with material tailored to young minds. During the summer, we are pleased to host Camp Canine, for kids ages 8-12 to have fun learning how to train and care for their dog. Contact us today to schedule a presentation with your group or class.

Canine Communication & Behavior Seminar

Would you like to raise funds for your organization? Is education about dog behavior, bite prevention and responsible pet ownership needed in your community? You can raise funds and educate with KARE’s Canine Communication and Behavior Seminar. The seminar is a unique two day program to help educate communities about dog communication, behavior and resolving behavior problems.

How do you bring this seminar to your community? Your organization hosts the event charging a minimal fee (organizations have charged between $45.00 to $100.00 per person for both days). The fees collected are for your organization and the maximum number of participants is determined by the size of your facility. The only fee you pay to KARE is for any travel (airfare or gas & hotel) expenses. Contact us today to schedule a seminar for your community!
