We will continue to update the information and the pertinent links in a timely fashion. Dogs are our passion, thank you for sharing your time with us and with your "best friend".


I don't think hitting, choke collars, or electric shock makes for a strong bond and you don't advocate these. I watched you with Nicoles's dog and wanted the same result.
