In order to boost the adult dog adoption rate and improve the behavior of shelter animals, the Animal Protection and Health Inspection Office is working with private dog training schools to send shelter dogs out for 30 days of animal training, which includes the use of such basic obedience commands as "sit," "lie down," "wait," and "heel." This obedience training will increase dogs' stability and ability to concentrate, and improve problem behaviors such as jumping on people and excessive excitement. After dog training, new owners will not have to worry that their dogs are "unteachable." The city's animal shelters also have dog training personnel able to teach training techniques to people who are adopting dogs, ensuring that new dog owners don't have to worry not being able to teach their animals.

Shelter dogs may have been frightened, driven away, or abused in the past, causing them to lose their trust in humans. When such dogs are suddenly thrust into a new environment, it is easy for them to develop problematic behavior, such as aversion to humans, timidity, running off, food aggression, and even making defensive attacks. A helping hand is needed if these traumatized dogs are to recover their trust in and love for humans. The city's "T. (Trap), N. (Neuter), T. (Train), A. (Adopt)" policy calls for spaying or neutering after a health assessment, followed by socialization or desensitization of dogs that are timid or highly excitable, which is intended to help the dogs to approach and interact with humans without stress. In addition, dogs are taught basic obedience commands. This ensures that people raising dogs for the first time will have a good beginning, and also bring about a major change in the public's stereotyped impressions of shelter dogs. By improving the character of its dogs, the Animal Shelter will ensure the good quality of adopted animals. The Animal Protection and Health Inspection Office cordially invites you to see the change in shelter animals, which has given them new opportunities for happiness, and we ask you to join us in supporting adoption and opposing abandonment—Yes, we can!
