Hi everyone and welcome to For Pup Sake Dog Training. My name is Patti and as a professional and experienced dog trainer, I'd like you all to know why I want to offer my services to you.
I have had some amazing dogs, some crazy dogs and some dogs who, quite frankly, weren't the sharpest pup in the pack and I have loved them all. Almost 6 years ago I brought home a 9-week old Shepherd\Rotti cross whom we named Wick. At the same time, I was just beginning my formal training to become a Professional Dog Trainer. Wick would train along with me and would later become my demo dog. As she has matured she has grown into a smart, sweet, wonderful dog. But something else really cool happened. Something I hadn't anticipated.
She and I developed a very special relationship. We bonded, we communicate and there is mutual respect. As I said, I have always had great dogs but this is different. Delving deeper into what Wick is capable of opened my eyes to the possibilities and I know there's so much more than she and I are capable of that I can't wait to explore. Since Wick joined me I have added 2 more dogs to my pack and have trained with all of them. I have a total of 4 large breed dogs living in my house and that is often met with surprise when I tell people but it's not hard. They're not my babies, they are canine members of our family. We co-exist, we work together, we play together, we go places together, we enjoy each other. I mean, isn't that why we get dogs in the first place?
I want you to feel that way about your dog because it truly is magical.
