KNOXVILLE DOG TRAINING RESOURCE FOR SHELTERED DOGS

Down and Dirty Dogs aims to improve quality of life and adoptability of sheltered
and fostered dogs through play, behavioral assistance, and temporary respite outside of the shelter environment.   

OUR Vision

We support local animal shelters in training sheltered dogs giving them the opportunity to learn new skills and have dedicated play time outside of the kennels. Our goal is to increase these dogs' enrichment and emotional well-being. Training and learning outside of a shelter environment provides dogs with “real-life” skills and behaviors that will increase adoptability and the success rate of adoptions.

WHAT WE DO

  • We provide these sheltered dogs with well-deserved time outside of the shelter to play and run around, while receiving proper training from a team of dog-lovers.

  • We support our area shelters to help dogs find forever homes, especially Young Williams.  Most shelters do not have the space or resources to focus on behavior and training, so we help provide the shelters with that resource.

  • We exclusively use positive reinforcement for shaping or changing a dog's behavior. Our core value is canine well-being and safety.
