German Shepherd Dog

When we adopted our dog, Corky, she didn’t even know her name and didn’t know any commands. 

By the end of Foundation Skills, she knows a ton! How to sit, lay down, and even go to bed!

Most of all, you gave us the skills and knowledge to train Corky on an ongoing basis. Corky had a blast!
