This is ❤️Miss Ladybird❤️, she is looking for a home of her very own for Christmas.🎄 She's a 4 year lab pittie mix. She was abandoned at a New York Animal Control center after having some complications while delivering her puppies. She is staying with one of our veterinarian friends while she recovers from her spay surgery. She's great with people and kids. She's not so great with cats and we are unsure how she is with dogs, she's been fantastic with her puppies though! We'd be happy to help with any training needed going forward. 🐾 Reach out to [email protected] with any questions. 🐾
💕We'd appreciate the help spreading the word to find this lady a home 🥰

At the eleventh hour on the eleventh day of the eleventh month - we will remember them. The Armistice, an agreement to end the fighting of the First World War as a prelude to peace negotiations, began at 11am on 11 November 1918. Armistice is Latin for to stand (still) arms.
We thank all the veterans, both past and present for fighting for the freedoms that we currently have. ❤️🐾

Though it may look like it, a dog NEVER bites "without warning". There are always signs, they are usually just subtle. If a dog doesn't growl before the bite, it's likely that the dog was punished for growling in the past, so he learned not growl and just bite instead.

Things we learned today: Even though they say they are for indoor, the fly trap "bags" are NOT for indoors! Our sincerest apologies if you noticed a strange odor in the building today, the traps have been taken down! The flies won this battle, but I swear I'll win the war!!!!

ALWAYS watch you children around dogs! Contrary to popular belief dogs don't actually love being hugged and climbed on by kids. Close contact is considered rude and invasive.

🐾 The pet care business is a booming industry that everyone is trying to get into and these days we are seeing so many new pet care businesses pop up. There are a few things to keep in mind when searching for the best option for you and your pets. When choosing a facility or any kind of professional for your dog, it is just as important for you to interview them. Here are a few key points to ask about:

💫The first MOST important thing that you want to be aware of is the qualifications of the person who owns or is running the business. It's great that people love dogs, but if they have no actual experience in the industry and zero qualifications, then it's likely not a good idea to send your pup there, simply for safety reasons.

💫You want to make sure that anyone running a pet business (especially a daycare/boarding facility) is a professional in some kind of capacity- like a CERTIFIED (anyone can call themselves a trainer) trainer, vet tech, groomer or someone who has already worked in the industry for years.

💫You want to make sure it is a licensed, legal business in the town.

💫What kind of training does the staff have?

💫Ask about cleaning and sanitization protocols, what would they do if there was a Kennel Cough outbreak?

💫Do they allow people to stop in for tours? Do they have to be scheduled or can you just drop in? If they don't allow tours at all RUN!

💫How does the place smell when you walk in? Are you immediately bowled over by the smell of urine or f***s? Or does it smell clean and fresh?

💫It's nice if a place looks good, but is it actually dog proof and safe? Are there double gate systems to ensure that pet's don't escape?

💫If it's a daycare, is there any kind of structure or is it just a free for all where the dogs run wild all day and come home stressed out and overstimulated?

💫Is your dog happy to go or do they try to leave with you?

🐾 When choosing someone to help care for your dog it's important to find a good fit as it will likely be a long term relationship. Always ask as many questions as you need and ALWAYS trust your gut! 🐾

As a structured daycare, we reinforce basic obedience and impulse control. One of our favorite things to work on is gate control! Meaning we teach the dogs not to cross the threshold of the play yard gates unless invited to do so. This is also a really important safety feature. Here are some of our handlers putting in ! 🐕🐾❤️

Do you know where our name "Recurve" comes from? Growing up, Stephanie's father taught her and her siblings the art of archery. A recurve bow is Steph's favorite type of bow, just like the kind Robinhood used! When choosing a name for the business, they say choose something that means something to you and something that is different from all the rest. Steph couldn't resist the chance to combine two of her favorite things! Dogs and archery! When looking through some of our program names, you'll notice the running archery theme! 🐾🥰

Here at RcK9 we have added the "Muzzle Musketeer" program! Just because a dog is wearing a muzzle does not make them a bad dog! Some dogs have big feelings and they aren't always sure how to express them properly. Wearing a muzzle keeps them honest. Because the owner of Recurve K9, Stephanie, is a trainer, we are able to take on some of the more difficult dogs. We help them learn to socialize properly and teach them the skills to handle different situations appropriately! We LOVE helping these dogs grow into confident pups! 🐾🥰

Our Story

A long time ago, a pit bull stole my heart. Years later I was working in an animal hospital and the local ACO brought in a pit bull type dog. His name was Rusty and after being locked in a house alone, for a month, he had broken through a window in an effort to save his own life. Unfortunately we were unable to save him, heartbroken and angry I swore that I would do everything in my power to make sure that would never happen to another dog again. Thus began my foray into rescue. Fast forward several more years.. We had become familiar with a few rescues and had taken on several fosters. Then one day, a local kid asked if we could take his dog because he just didn’t know what he was getting into when he got the dog and no longer had the time or means to take care of him. Sure, what’s one more? Enter “Zarek” or “Z” for short, a deep red roan pit with ridiculously over sized ears. Shortly after “Z” came home, I realized that he had some serious behavioral issues and that we couldn’t really ever adopt him out. As far as training, I really had no idea what I was doing so I started to read, A LOT. The more I read, the more I learned that the issue that most of these dogs had was not because of their breed, but because of a certain lack of training. In fact, most of the dogs that we ended up taking on, had some pretty serious issues that could have been avoided had they received proper training in the first place!

My roots will forever lie in rescue, I still help when and where I can but my passion, dare I say obsession, is training. I studied and received my CDT from Penn Foster, I am an AKC Certified CGC Evaluator and AKC Certified Trick Dog Instructor. I opened Recurve K9 Training and Behavior Modification in hopes that I could help keep dogs from ever going into the shelter. Bully breeds in general, hold a special place in my heart but I do work with dogs of every breed, size and age. My goal as a trainer is to help improve communication between dogs and their humans to ensure a long and happy relationship.
