Join Us In Our Mission to Help Dogs In Need of Homes With Humane, Science-Based Training

How We Help

Spencer Group partners with rescue groups and certified trainers to deliver humane, science-based dog training and behavior education on a scholarship basis. We are committed to increasing rescue dogs’ adoptability into safe, loving homes, preventing the return of adopted dogs, and improving dogs’ emotional and physical well-being.

The Spencer Scholarship provides a free resource to local rescues with foster dogs exhibiting anxious, fearful or reactive behavior. Our trainers provide positive reinforcement rather than resorting to aversive methods for otherwise manageable behavior.

Independent, certified trainers devise training plans that are manageable for busy foster families and provide transitional support to adopters. Spencer Group works transparently and in partnership to help rescue groups manage their limited resources so they can focus on saving more dogs.
