The Heigl Foundation's "Learn To Be A Best Friend" program is an initiative that provides free dog obedience training at two Los Angeles area locations: Baldwin Park and South Gate. Members of the public who would like their pet to participate in the program simply need to call to register. The goal of the program is to teach responsible pet ownership and basic obedience commands.
