"Doggie Be Good"
Every week the Humane Society of
Broward County receives hundreds of dogs surrendered to the shelter
because of behavior problems! The good news is you do not have to
give up your dog because he has problems, every dog does! Instead
enroll him in Doggy School and teach him the rules through our POSITIVE
