In honor of Memorial Day, we want to take a moment to make mention of the war dogs throughout history.

"The average career span for a military working dog is approximately 9-11 years. Prior to 2000, military working dogs were considered “surplus equipment” and were euthanized or abandoned after their retirement.

It is estimated that approximately 4000 MWDs were left in Vietnam at the end of the war with only a little over 200 dogs making it home. After 2000, President Clinton passed “Robby’s Law” allowing handlers and their families to get first dibs at adopting their MWD. Today, over 90% of retired MWD’s are adopted by their former handlers. In addition, many dogs continue to support local law enforcement after retirement. If a handler is unable to adopt their working dog, the DOD identified other willing families to ensure the dog has a home. From 2012-14, 1,312 dogs were adopted by individual families and 252 were adopted by law enforcement agencies."

Congratulations to this group of adolescents! Daisy, Iris, Mandy, Madison, and Ulysses are all at different points in their training journey but have made milestones in our Curbing Adolescence class! 🎉🎉🎉 Adolescence is the hardest part of owning a dog - their brains are changing and they literally cannot function the same as they did previously.

The AKC believes that all dogs can be good dogs, and all owners can be great owners, all it takes is a little bit of training, lots of love, and of course, plenty of praise along the way.

The Canine Good Citizen test incorporates 10 skills that every dog should know to be polite members of society.

Our CGC Prep course will help you get your dog well on their way to passing the CGC test and earning their AKC CGC title!

Join us on Saturdays, starting on April 27th, at 12:45 and get you and your dog ready!
