Are you struggling to help your adopted dog adjust to the home? We can help. If you have adopted from us and are having issues you aren’t sure how to address, please email us at We are happy to provide post-adoption behavioral support.

Looking for obedience and socialization opportunities for your dog? SSPA is affiliated with P.R.O.U.D. – (Promoting Responsible Ownership of the Under Dog). PROUD offers obedience classes as well as a walking/socialization group in Sacramento on alternating Saturdays that help give all owners the opportunity to safely socialize dogs–even reactive ones. It’s a fun, informative environment. We hope all our adopters will check it out.

Also, please visit our information page for links to online resources for a variety of dog training and behavioral issues.

IMPORTANT: If your family is struggling to keep your pet, there is help! Please visit for more information. If you feel need to surrender your dog, the Petco Foundation can help you safely rehome your pet. If you adopted your dog through SSPA, we ask that you contact us directly if you feel you cannot keep your dog for any reason.
