Belinda and Jeff are both actively involved in rescue and fostering dogs. After seeing so many dogs turned over to shelters, rescues and often just into the street, for what in many cases is a problem that can be fixed with basic training, they decided they can make the biggest difference by helping people build better communication with their dogs through training.
Belinda and Jeff also enjoy competing with their dogs in a variety of dog sports including Conformation, Hunt, Obedience, Dock Jumping and Rally. Dog sports encourage bond building with your dog and increase your communications skills while having a great time with your dog. If you're interested in any of these sports, please ask, we're happy to point you in the right direction!
