I commute 2hrs one way to attend the amazing and informative workshops offered by YDF. The knowledge and experience offered at these workshops is a valuable tool for anyone wanting to learn more about dogs. Whether you are looking for training advise, behavior issues, diet recommendations, and much more, this is the place to go!

Your Dogs Friend provides an invaluable service to rescue dogs and their owners. I am a dog trainer and adoption coordinator for a local humane society. Your Dogs Friend provides workshops, seminars, and training classes designed to make the dog adoption process a success. We've used their services many times. Margie Dowsett

YDF has been unbelievably helpful in providing seminars for both professionals in the dog rescue field as well as dog owners in general. Their training approach is gentle with positive reinforcement methods emphasised. We have learned an incredible amount about how dogs think from their speakers and classes. And they provide a free seminar series as well to help reach the largest number of people possible and help change the perception and treatment of our canine companions in society.
