Our Creed

I am my pet's pal
Entrusted with his care
And I will never fail him
No matter when or where

I'll always be forgiving
If she makes a mistake
For I know they are loving
And think that I am great

I'll teach them all they need to know
To get through each new day
With love and care
I'll be right there
"Good Job," my folks will say!!

Love and Training makes the difference

I interviewed a young man who told me his family always had dogs and cats at home. It didn't seem like a big deal; they were just always around. Once he married, he and his wife decided to adopt a dog from their local shelter. They chose a lovable mutt and named him Lucky, because when they found him he had been scheduled to be put down in less than an hour.
They got Lucky home and everything was great -- for about two hours. Then they discovered Lucky the dog had behavioral problems. You name it, and this dog did it. Soon the neighbors were furious with Lucky's barking, his jumping fences, and his digging in their flowerbeds.
The young couple was about to return the dog to the shelter when one of their neighbors suggested they have Lucky trained. The neighbor even offered to pay for the first two lessons. The couple agreed.
After just two of these training sessions, that dog began to change overnight into an obedient, wonderful, and loving companion. Now each Saturday morning, Lucky, with leash in mouth, wakes up his pal, ready for the week's group training class. It seems all the dogs and their guardians absolutely love the experience of working together to create a bond unique and special to each of them. The young man said, "I wish I knew about training my pet when I was a kid. It's a great feeling knowing Lucky wants to be loved and to please my wife and me. What a great friend he has become."
