Unleash the Spirit of Generosity, Be a Hero to a Homeless Pet.

Unleash the Spirit of Generosity, Be a Hero to a Homeless Pet.  Adopting a dog from a shelter is an exciting, feel-good event.

Merry Christmas!

Wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year filled with Love and Happiness!!!


First Public Outing UPDATE!

Sorry for the late update!!!
Well, Chase’s first public outing was a learning experience. It didn’t go well as he had several outbursts and shutdown on me a few times. It didn’t help that I was just as nervous as probably Chase was!!
The setup wasn’t the greatest as there was music playing and too much comotion to even try to explain the tricks and how to do them especially without a microphone.
So back to square one with a new training regimen – Control Unleashed by Leslie McDevitt. Hoping to get Chase to the point where we can continue to show off his tricks!!
Check back for updates on the new training regimen!


Tricks Demo: Our First Public Outing

This Sunday, May 25,2014 will be our first public outing as we were asked to perform a tricks demonstration for Leadership Lackawanna’s Family Fun Day to benefit Griffin Pond Animal Shelter’s Foster A Pet Program.
I am looking forward to taking Chase out of his comfort zone as well as myself as I’m not to fond of speaking in front of so many people. So I guess this is a training session for me and not for Chase this time – hahaha!!
Stay tuned to see how we did!!!

Debbie has also gone beyond my training and taught Chase many playful and clever tricks; she was always diligent in making sure she kept the learning process fun. I was so impressed with their tricks that I invited her to teach a Tricks Workshop at the training center. It’s a great success; the students enjoy the amusing and interactive activities with their dogs. Watch Chase’s video on YouTube, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p5XmqxNqFaE&feature=youtu.be.

Chase will always be a work in progress. When Debbie and Sam leave the house, Chase must go to his room. There he…
