OTHER SERVICES

Rescue Select

The Preferred Dog Board & Train OR Individual Lesson Program

Blue Bridge Dog Training can help with the selection process at a local shelter. Preconceived ideas about the breed, size, color, fur length, and any other characteristics you would like can lead to difficulties, or at worst, the return of the dog back to the shelter. Making an informed decision at the beginning of the process can reduce the risk of tremendous heartache down the road.
