Free Pit Bull Training During the Month of October
The City of Albuquerque Animal Welfare Department is hosting free Pit Bull and Pit mix training every Saturday during the month of October.
Animal Welfare’s goal is to get much-needed resources to these dogs and the folks who love them. Understanding the breed of a Pit Bull is the first step to being a responsible pet owner. A well-trained Pit Bull can be an ambassador for his breed, showing the world that with a loving home and training, Pit Bulls can make wonderful pets. Education and responsible owners are critical in changing the perception of this breed.
Animal Welfare Department staff would like to express heartfelt appreciation to Kennel Kopadres, Petco, Boofy's Best for Pets, Pet Safe, and Sandia Pet Products and the Dog Trainers for their enthusiasm and generous sponsorship in their efforts to help end the current cycle of public misconception and homelessness among Pit Bulls.
