Other Family Members
This page is dedicated to the other non-Shepherd furry members of our family. They are very involved in the socialization of all of our dogs and puppies.
Trinket is our resident Maltese but that doesn't stop her from believing she is large as life! She plays a huge role in socializing the dogs to small animals and teaching them the value of being gentle.
Shazam, LAney and Faygo
Our puppies are socialized with cats from day one. Shazam and Faygo live in the kennel with the dogs. They not only desensitize and socialize the dogs to their presence, they also form strong bonds, often going into the individual cubicles to snuggle with each dog.
Crystal and Joy
Our horses, Crystal and Joy, often are used for training with high levels of distractions. Many dogs have never seen such big animals, and being around them can give them added confidence!
Big mama, Princess Leah, Gracie, Nabisco, McKenna, Buffy, Tofu and Delta
Big Mama, Princess Leah, Gracie, Nabisco, McKenna, Buffy, Tofu and Delta are our resident chickens. They provide socialization to the dogs that are staying at the kennel for boarding/training, since they live right next to the boarding kennel. Our chickens also produce many fresh eggs that all go to our dogs and puppies as a great dietary supplement!
