Sometimes, it isn't worth bringing our nervous patients back into the clinic. We still need to check on their progress regularly to ensure they are improving and you are comfortable with the plan.
Our belief is that with proper education, empathy, and understanding, families and professionals alike can learn to work and live with animals to the benefit of both parties. Every few weeks, the team will offer specific workshops designed to enhance your understanding of animal behavior, training, medicine, and care.
While ABWC teaches several classes of their own, we also rent out our space to local force free trainers. Schedules change periodically, so be sure to see the full Group Classes page for more details.
