ABOUT THE PROGRAM

Traverse Outdoor and the Cherryland Humane society are working together to find homes for outdoor loving rescue dogs. The importance of canine communication and training will dramatically assist in placing these amazing dogs in their forever-family homes.
Traverse Outdoor Landscaping and Irrigation has offered to establish a scholarship fund for dogs that display a greater need for behavior training. The fund is awarded by CHS staff after careful analysis suggests that the availability of the class will greatly improve the placement of these “Outdoor Lovin’ Dogs”.
Traverse Outdoor is a Traverse City based landscaping and irrigation company with over 40 years of service to the community.

LOCAL IMPACT

450 DOGS WERE ADOPTED IN 2018-2020

80%

Of those dogs benefited from the Canine Behavior Training Program (CBTP) Scholarship Fund provided by Traverse Outdoor Landscaping & Irrigation!
45% of those dogs were hard to adopt dogs OR were at risk of returning to the shelter due to behavioral concerns.

IMPACT

With the help of the Training Program, our wonderful staff and volunteers, along with Traverse Outdoor’s support… these dogs are in loving homes learning how to be dogs and overcoming their fearful pasts.

SUCCESS STORIES

Here are personal thoughts, from adopters, on CHS’s Canine Behavior Training Program!

“This is a huge benefit for anyone getting a rescue dog.”

 “It was very helpful…can always learn new things…every dog is different and not all rules apply, every time, so good to have lots of tools in the toolbox and high value treats!”

“It (the scholarship fund) was a pleasant surprise.”ngs.

 “Thank you for funding this program. So much change on both sides (the pet and the family) and these programs help the two understand each other and build trust. Tia is great to work with and is so full of knowledge. She genuinely wants to see the pets become a valued part of the family and is willing to help where she can. So again, THANK YOU for your commitment to the Cherryland Humane Society and this program!”.

“Thank you so much to Tia for sharing her knowledge. This new momma needs the training as much if not more then Dudley. I couldn’t be more grateful. Dudley’s already teaching his little brother how to lay down and relax. They are destined to be best buddies!”

 “We really enjoyed leash walking because our dog is such a puller! The socialization piece was also very helpful with this being our first dog, and because we didn’t know her history with other pets.”

THANK YOU!
