There is a major effort underway in Rochester to make sure shelter dogs don’t become aggressive when adopted.

Local dog catchers respond to several calls every week and an expert from Colorado is hoping to change that.

News10NBC’s Pat Taney spoke with Aimee Sadler Wednesday morning. She is in town to teach the professionals how to train shelter dogs to make them better pets and ultimately to find a forever home.

The Verona Street Animal Shelter in Rochester says it wanted to host the three-day training event because the right training could mean troubled dogs can be saved.
