We offer adopters of rescued dogs a place to bring their dogs for tutoring. We are located in a beautiful woodsy area which allows for a quiet, nature filled environment-perfect for learning and for safely simulating the type of environment a dog may need to train within . We need help picking up all the branches and sticks that fall from all the trees in our six acre property. We have a cart that a volunteer can go around the property and pick up sticks. Please note these are not huge branches just some sticks-so no heavy lifting. In addition there are no dogs on our site when volunteers visit, (Dogs visit us by appointment only)-so no worries about any interactions with dogs. And we promise....no pooper scooper duties.

Your time to do this is not only appreciated but very important as sticks are not only distractors for dogs in training on walks, but also harmful in terms of how they can hurt those on both sides of the leash!

You can volunteer for as long or as little as you would like-even just an hour helps us out.

Thank you for considering us worthy of your volunteerism,

Pam and the dogs of Doing Right By Rescues!

Mission Statement

We are a non profit with two missions; To provide tutoring to individuals who have rescued dogs and to provide low cost educational sessions relevant to those who rescue or foster animals.


We provide assistance with non traditional dog training (not formal obedience) for those who have kindly opened their homes and hearts to rescued dogs. We specialize in providing tips, training and equipment recommendations to deal with reactivity issues which sometimes come with rescued dogs. We also provide hands on customized instruction at our six acre zen-like training facility to help people learn techniques to calm and destress their rescued dogs.

Whether a person has adopted a dog (or is fostering a dog for a non profit organization) we work one on one (no group classes) to support them as they help dogs transition from rescue to rehomed. We also offer home visits for rescued dogs adopted by senior citizens who may be unable to come to our facility.

We are certified Tellington Touch Practitioners and members of the Pet Professionals Guild for Force Free Training and have signed a pledge to employ only kind, positive reinforcement and humane handling techniques at our tutoring barn.
