This is a program was designed to help save dogs who, because of severe behavioral issues, are in danger of losing their lives to euthanasia.
Tessa's Cause was created to honor the life of a fearful young dog, under one-year of age who was euthanized when she failed temperament when she was surrendered to that shelter. It honors all dogs who find themselves faced with death because their issues either went undiagnosed by a qualified professional or were misunderstood by by their handlers. Tessa's Cause was created by My Best Friend Dog Training LLC (parent company of The Dog Super Nanny), and is the only program of its kind in the United States under this name.
