Obedience Training is NOT for your Dog
If you've adopted a dog from this rescue, you know that you are required to attend obedience training within six months and provide proof of completion to the rescue. (And if you haven't adopted a dog from us, now you know!)
One out of three adoption applicants asks WHY they have to go to classes. Obedience training is NOT for the dog. It's for socialization, working with the dog with distractions and bonding. It's for you and your dog as a team. Almost anyone can teach a dog to sit.
Don't forget -- you own a dog that society is afraid of. It is your responsibility to make sure that your dog is well trained and well mannered in all situations. A Canine Good Citizen certification is ideal for our breeds.
Let me put this into perspective: I have been working with rotties for 11 years. I have taken dozens of training classes with my own dogs, with the rescue dogs - and even with other people's dogs. I have titled dogs in obedience, put Canine Good Citizen titles on almost every dog that has called my house "home" and have worked in competitive sports with several dogs. I can be found on Monday nights at training class with Kai. I do not need to go to class to teach my dog things. I am there to give him distractions, to fine tune what he's already learned, and so that he and I are a team.
So NOW is the time to sign up for classes and complete this requirement of your adoption.

Obedience Training and your Dog (including how to pick a trainer)
Hurricane Ike did its damage. People lost everything they owned ... and many lost their lives. Now that they're starting to get back to normal in Houston (not so much in Galveston), the list of dogs needing help has come to us.
The dogs need you - Help us to help them. So far, Mischke, Mario, Bella, Millie, Daphne & Sebastian , Bonita, Crystal, Luigi, Geno, Annie and Rose have joined us already in New Hampshire. Coming mid-October are Lorenzo, Zoey and Daphne, along with Mojo and Morrison who are Gustav survivors from Louisiana. Our Texas ally Tom has three more waiting after this crew, but they need heartworm treatment.
We often ask for money, and won't turn it away if it's offered (and your donation is tax deductable). But what we really need is FOSTER HOMES -- for the dogs in boarding currently and for the dogs coming in this week, next week and after that.
If you are an approved adopter, just drop me an email if you can foster. If you are interested in fostering and you're now to our realm, please fill out a foster application.

Since 1998, I have been taking dogs from the Center for Animal Care & Control in New York City. In 2005, we moved 25 dogs into permanent homes from the city. In 2006, we moved 52 dogs into permanent homes from the city. The NYCACC takes in all stray and city impound dogs as well as owner turn ins and averages 3000 animals a month. Owners are allowed 72 hours to reclaim their dog, or the dog becomes available for adoption or may be euthanized. To get these dogs to safety, we need to move them to boarding space. DISCOUNTED boarding space in New York is $25/day. That gets expensive quickly and we need HELP with it.
~We take several dogs every week. Your continued support is needed. ~
