Training Program

While dogs wait for their forever homes here at the Animal Adoption Center, they receive bi-weekly training from our certified dog trainer, Eva Perrigo. During the bi-weekly training sessions, Eva Perrigo assesses each dog and addresses whatever they may need help with. This training ranges from basic commands to overcoming bigger behavioral hurdles. Not only do the skills learned through the training program help each dog become more adoptable but they provide the adopters with the right tools for successful pet ownership. We also provide training vouchers to dogs that may need a little extra help, first time pet owners or puppies.

Thanks to the Community Foundation of Jackson Hole for funding this training program and making this possible through 2018!
