Socialization Program

Pets Return Home currently uses three dog packs that assist in helping behavior challenged dogs learn canine manners, discover trust, build confidence and implement acceptable behavior patterns.

Interested in adopting one of our dogs? Apply today!

After a 3 day quarantine and behavior assessment, new dogs are introduce to the pack. Our nonreactive pack members each have their own contribution to help guide new dogs through their behavior growth. Our behavior development experts work with each dog individually and with the packs to increase predictable behavior.

Board and Train Ambassador

Hi, I’m Tucker. I’m a Sharpei and Labrador mix (Sharbador). I’m so lucky. I was once on the list for euthanasia at the local animal control facility because I needed eye surgery for an ingrown eyelash. Fortunately, I was able to hook up with Pets Return Home. I’m sort of an expert here and I meet each new dog to see if they are overtly dog-on-dog aggressive. If the dog is, I just turn my back on him and walk away. I make sure there’s no fighting and the behavior specialists here note how the other dog reacts.


Play Activity Director

Hi, I’m Turbo. I’m a Louisiana Catahoula Leopard dog adopted from the local shelter. My job at Pets Return Home is to engage new dogs in play when they arrive. I’m pretty submissive and I can usually get even the grumpiest guests to play when I lie on my back.

Sergeant at Arms; Puppy Management

Roxie here. I’m a Blue Pit Bull. I’ve had six litters in my three years at the scary puppy mill. I’m the primary alpha canine at the facility, and they tell me I offer outstanding correction skills in the Puppy IQ program. I really enjoy playing with all the dogs at Pets Return Home. I just won’t tolerate dog-on-dog aggressiveness.
