Your Dog’s Best Friend

Rescuing a dog is a rewarding experience.  Adoption is the last and most crucial step in taking a dog
that had little hope and giving it a happy and fulfilling life.  Unfortunately, a few dogs have difficulty in
adjusting to their new home.  And not every adopter knows how to effectively help the dog adjust to
its new home environment and to the activities of its new family.  Shih Tzu Rescue of Minnesota is
always willing to advise adopters regarding basic behavior or obedience training at any time.  But if
you feel that you need additional help with specific training or behavior issues for the Shih Tzu you
adopted from STRMN, Your Dog’s Best Friend is available for private, in-home training sessions
with you and your dog.  The training session(s) is meant to intensively address specific behavior
issues, and is not intended as a substitute for general dog obedience training.   Your Dog’s Best
Friend has generously agreed to provide training at a reduced rate for dogs that have been adopted
from STRMN.  

Here is an excerpt from Your Dog’s Best Friend’s website that explains how they will work with your

“At Your Dog's Best Friend, we spend our days hosting dog groups where we teach owners
how to "Dog Whisper" and help dogs socialize in a positive environment.  We work with
several veterinary hospitals and rescue agencies to create great dogs when all hope seems to
be lost.  We do in-home training to help dog owners rehabilitate dogs with behavior problems
and learn how to manage the dog’s behavior themselves.”
