Dog Training

Please be very careful about who you pick as a trainer for your animals. Dog trainers are not governed by any central body and do not require any formal training to practice in BC.

Victoria Humane Society only supports positive training methods and we are opposed to any training methods that include shock collars, prong collars etc. Contrary to popular believe, there is never a good way to use them!

If you wish to discuss potential dog trainers with us, please contact us and we will be happy to provide recommendations.

If you are looking for online resources, we strongly support the work of Ian Dunbar, Sophia Yin and Chirag Patel. They all have excellent websites and numerous training videos and articles.

You are the lifeblood of our work on behalf of animals.

You are the lifeblood of our work on behalf of animals.

As a non-profit organization, the Victoria Humane Society depends entirely on donations from kind-hearted people like you. Every month, we rescue literally dozens of dogs and cats, and sometimes other small animals, many from horrific circumstances such as neglect, starvation and abuse. The associated costs of rescue are significant, from arranging transportation for the animals out of remote communities and into our care, to emergency medical bills to save animals lives, to spay and neuter costs, vaccinations, hospitalizations, medications and on-going food costs and incidentals. Monthly and one-time donors are literally our most critical form of support. We thank you for donating what you can today.
