Victory for Sasha!

Sasha is another victim of BSL. She has been wrongly identified as (hold your breath) a pit bull! Sasha is one of the lucky ones because yesterday it was verified that she is in fact an American Bulldog and therefore allowed to go home with her family. It really does make a difference when we take a few minutes out of our busy day to sign a petition put forth to save dogs like Sasha. For Sasha's full story go to The Petition Site. But don't stop there...speak up for other innocent dogs effected by BSL. This is happening all across the US and internationally. Don't think because you don't own a pit bull that this doesn't effect you. Every dog will have it's day when they are judged because of they way they look. It has happened to German Shepherd, Dobermans, Akitas and now it is happening to Rottweilers, American Pit Bull Terriers and many of the bully breeds. How would you feel if someone came to your home and legally removed your dog because it was a certain breed or breed mix? Your Lab could be next! Speak up for those who can't speak for themselves.

  1. Awesome, Dee. Very well said. You are so correct that we ALL need to fight BSL. Any large breed (or not so large) could be the next target of uneducated and ignorant politicians trying to bring about a "quick fix" to make themselves look like they are doing something. BSL does not work. No dog deserves to be judged on looks alone. They are all individuals.

Dog Training Philosophy

My photo

I train dogs using positive reinforcement training to modify unwanted behaviors.  I step outside the traditional training box and use therapeutic-grade essential oils to assist in my behavior modification regime when it comes to dogs plagued with fear and anxiety as well as aggression.  My philosophy is to heal the dog's mind, body and spirit, not just to rid the dog of unacceptable behaviors.  I specialize in shelter dog rehab, reactive rover, and fearful fidos.
