Please note: trainers can cost between $75.00 and $125.00 an hour for one-on-one training.
Just like you would take your dog to a vet for illnesses, we expect you to get training for your dog or puppy. All dogs can benefit from training, and it is the responsibility of every dog owner. PLP does not have a kennel and neither directors or board members have space for dogs returned because adopted dogs have not been properly trained.
Typically, most dogs only need one or two sessions to improve leash, or behavioral issues.

This means you cannot physically care for or provide vet care. We will do our best to help with a way to keep the dog in the home first.
If you want to return a dog because of lack of training or behavior, you will need to contact a trainer first. We can help provide resources and trainer recommendations. We do not have a kennel and we are 100% foster based. We do not have a facility. It can take anywhere between days to over a month to find a foster home for a dog as we only use approved foster homes. *
