As you can see, we have all types of coats to look after and different challenges when it comes to training equipment. I am a positive method trainer. I only use equipment that will work.
Teki is my fully trained Therapy Dog. She has passed all her test and is certified. Teki is the ruler of the house. All she has to do is smile to let the other dogs know what to do..
Tilly: Pit Bull
I still don't know if I'm up for a Terrier. True to the Terrier type she is a ball of energy. I wanted a Pit Bull to train for Therapy Dog and Agility Dog. Of course I would not buy one as I am a rescuer. Deuces Blue Pits donated Attila to me to help change the Pit Bull image. She has finished her Advance classes and is well on her way to the Therapy Dog. She finished her puppy agility training in 2006. Her first doggie friend was an Akita. She is soooo unafraid of large dogs. Tilly is my peacemaker. She doesn’t have a mean bone in her body.
Indiana: Pit Bull
We rescued Indy from the local shelter. He had a crushed leg. When we got it fixed the vet said he would be good as new and he is. Within the first year of living here, he saved our house from burning to the ground. We had emptied ashes to close to the house and it caught on fire. Thank God for Indy..
Nella : Australian Cattle Dog Blue Heeler
Nella was on death row at an Ohio shelter. Nobody wanted a very young cattle dog. She is a bundle of energy. I had her transported to us and have never regretted the decision. She is the class clown.
