Even experienced dog owners come across unruly pups that might need a little extra help learning basic manners. Or, maybe your pet needs another level of challenge and you want to explore having them become a certified therapy dog? We have vetted local trainer recommendations!

In-person training is currently unavailable at Telford Veterinary Hospital. We hope to resume our training program soon.



Dr. Loeffler has recently completed a virtual Cooperative Care training program in partnership with Uluru and Philly Unleashed. This program is designed to help you train your pet successfully accept routine home grooming care and veterinary care!

Vet care can be scary or overwhelming for some pups. Would your pet benefit from lessons on accepting veterinary care? We’ve teamed up with other local dog professionals to help.
Uluru Virtual Dog Training just launched their newest course for June 2021, a Fear Free Cooperative Care Series with Fear Free certified professionals Alicia Harantschuk of Philly Unleashed and Dr. Joanne Loeffler of Telford Veterinary Hospital!
