Additional training tip via email.

I was able to get a pitbull adopted to a good home after training it and rehabilitating it. The pitbull was thrown from a moving car and when I found the dog i took her to the Vet, paid for the surgery, trained the dog and got her adopted to a good home.

I'm a very easy going guy.

I started in 1996 as a K-9 officer for the Richmond Police Police Department. From there I attended a vocational dog training program through Save Our Shelters Pen Pals. I later pursued my education at Animal behavior College and graduated as a ABC certified obedience dog instructor.

I recommend that customers spend their money wisely.

Your dog's age, breed, sex, weight, your dog's last visit to the Vet and the training or behavior issue.
