The first photo is of my male, Riggs, taken at the Horst & Micha Knoche seminar in May of 2011. They came in from Germany to do a two day seminar for our training group. We were trying to show how far we'd come after working off the Michael Ellis Focused Heeling DVD I got for Christmas. Riggs had just turned 1 yr. old the weekend of the seminar. They were impressed with Riggs and said "he will make nice obedience for you". It was cute in their German accent.
Here is my second photo submission for the contest. This photo is of my female GSD, Tara, then 3 yrs. old, and my new puppy, Riggs. They like to roll around in the grass next to each other, bark and have fun, especially after playing in the sprinkler on a hot summer day! Riggs was just a little over 3 months old in this photo.

241. Dixie Lee the Alapaha Blue Blood Bulldog
Submitted by: Gerald
This is Dixie Lee who came from a breeder in Greenwood, Ms. She is an Alapaha Blue Blood Bulldog, just shy of a year old, (born on 9-11). She is purebred and registered with the ARF. The shot of her with the 2 balls was hard to capture, though since she came here always plays with more than one object at a time. It’s a screamer when you see her with a Kong bone and a ball or large and small Kong. I have a feeling someday she will come to me and open her mouth and a jillion objects will fall out! They are all different, just like us.  She is very responsive to me and we hope to train her to have a job. We just love her to death!!!! Wanted to mention that I was reading about the raw diet on Leerburg that helped me finally pull the trigger as far as raw feeding goes, though I really wanted to years ago when I had Akitas, though didn’t have the courage about raw bone then.
 
242. Rüger the Doberman
Submitted by: Leslye
Here are two photos of our 10 month old Dobermann pup, Rüger. He is from one of the breeder's first litters after laws came in in Australia preventing tail docking. And the usual comments about him are, "Look at that tail!" 
He was the last born of a litter of eleven, (and the largest, the breeder had to help pass his head at the birth), and quickly became the boss of his siblings. We have had three Dobermann bitches before this boy and when the breeder told us "he would be a handful" we thought we knew what she was talking about. How wrong we were.
This strong-willed, pig-headed, dominant dog has had me in tears of desperation quite a few times as he has tried to continue on us with his bossy ways. I have had great success int he past using gentle reward-based training on our previous dogs, but this guy had me bewildered as I wondered if any method would work!. Then came the online searching trying to find help.
All I can say is thank God for Ed Frawley and all at Leerburg. Finally, someone with a matter-of-fact manner who deals with hard dogs like mine and can solve real problems. We still have a long way to go with Rüger, but Ed has given me the confidence to know that we are actually capable of getting on top of this animal's behaviour. Put simply, I am seeing that with his incredible wealth of knowledge about dogs, Ed's method work.
 
243. Nikko the Shepherd/Rottweiler Mix
Submitted by: Michelle
This is Nikko, he is a 8.5 year old Shepherd / Rottweiler mix that I got when he was a year old.  He is an awesome dog.

When I lived at home he could tell when my father’s diabetes took a nose dive and he would nudge him, every time he was right on.

256. Ava
Submitted by: Daina
Here are a couple pictures of Ava when she was a puppy. She is now 21 months old and a beautiful black sable.
It was winter when we got Ava as a puppy, so with all the in and out bathroom trips I got a pair of fleece lined slip on crocks to make the job easier in the snow. I always kept a pair by the door, and for some reason she always liked sleeping on my crocks in some shape or form. Sometimes even going to sleep with her little puppy face inside one of them. She was always good and didn't chew them, but she loved sleeping with them. I have many pictures of her, but the one I'm sending is our favorite. I was at my computer one evening, and I turned around to see tired little Ava just as you see in the picture. Too tired to move fast, so I was able to get the picture taken. I'll never know what she was thinking, but I wish I could.
In the second picture I was playing peek-a-boo with her around a tree during one of our winter woods walks.

Submitted by: Kiersten
This is my Alaskan Husky, Tikko, and my boyfriend, Andrew, standing at sunset on Mount Kanoya with Mt. Susitna, and Knik Arm in the background (Anchorage, Alaska). Tikko is my skijor race dog, and a wonderful hiking companion. He can easily run 30 miles a day and would be happy to run more. He loves playing tug, learning new tricks, chasing ground squirrels, pulling me on skis, swimming, and hanging out with his best dog buddy, Tessa (the German Shepherd). He is extremely smart but certainly has a mind of his own. I bought him as a pup from a mid-distance musher in New York. His breeding is a mix of multiple Iditarod winner Swingley and multiple sprint (Rondy) and open North American winner Saunderson lines.  He is a wonderful dog, and a joy to own.

292. Ellie & Jaya Papaya the GSDs
Submitted by: Katie
Photo 1: Eliana vom Kraftwerk, SchH2, AD, CGC. GSD, 6 years old
"Ellie" is my first GSD and the first dog I have participated in Schutzhund with. She has taught me just about as much in training as I have taught her! She is a wonderful companion that I enjoy many hours with hiking, swimming and snowshoeing. As you can see, she humors me and is always up for a little fun. I LOVE her!
Photo 2: Jaya von der Olgameister. GSD, 7 weeks
"Jaya Papaya's" life as a puppy can be summed up with "eat, sleep, tug." She was an easy-going, fun-loving puppy with a great attitude. She is proving to be a wonderful, active companion swimming and hiking. I am training her as my next dog in Schutzhund and am very excited about our future.
 
293. Atom the Min Pin
 
Submitted by: Lizabeth
Photo 1: Here is one of my entries for your contest of my Min Pin, 4 years Old neutered male, Circle W Atom
Atom, I am beginning to think has 9 lives! Although he is AKC classified as a Miniature Pinscher he is definitely a Terrier at heart. He goes to ground after any unfortunate Mole that crosses his path. And will wholeheartedly give any rabbit a run for their money. He has lived through a few incidents already that I thought he wasn't going to make it, mainly a toy lodged in his throat that had to be removed by our Vet, being sprayed directly in the face by a skunk (YUK) which put him into trachea spasms where he could not seem to breathe, and last but surely not least a heart murmur :(

304. "Neetchie vom Sterntal" the GSD
Submitted by: Gabriele for the the photo contest.
My girl Neetchie is 3 years old and comes from an East German working dog line. My favorite picture is the one with the little boy hugging her. It was taken at an open house for the vet school and Neetchie seemed to enjoy all the attention she was getting. I had to include a second picture because it shows another side of Neetchie. A dog with lots of drive and athletic ability. So far we have attended 3 agility trials and she has earned her Novice JWW and Standard titles. Neetchie gets all the credit, because I'm not an experienced handler and had never shown a dog before. Things have been moving a little too fast for me and we are taking a little break right now so I can improve my skills as a handler. I learned the hard way (we had a collision and I fell down during a front cross) that it takes quite a bit of skill to run a fast dog. However, I'm planning on showing her at GSD Nationals in September.
 
305. Envy the German Shepherd
Submitted by:
Envy is a happy, excitable adolescent, who is always ready for the next fun activity. She is not my first German Shepherd, but she is my first higher drive, tug-crazy dog. I'm hopeful we can channel that energy into lots of success in obedience, agility, and possibly schutzhund!

Well, we followed your advise and they are having a blast together. Both dogs are from Misty Ridge in MD and we liked Elsa's tempermant and personallity so much that we got Kaiser from the same stud. They are both trained by a MD trainer that has worked with Michael Elllis! Cool. They are the best dogs ever!! They get exercised, worked and loved daily.

310. Casper
Submitted by: Lori
This is Casper. As you can tell he is no stranger to the camera. I took all these myself and sent a few in case you wanted to use holiday shots. I also would really like to thank you for your videos. I was very old school in my training techniques and it showed with poor Casper. He worked because he was made to. When he was out of the ring he did very well. In the ring was a different story! Without correction, he would "zoom" the ring and forget all about me, every time. I needed a way to get him to "want" to work without "making" him work. A friend suggested I look into your website and I was hooked! I have ordered not only 5 videos, I have a leather tug and bait bag! In only 4 shows I have put 2 legs towards his CD title, 2 legs towards a Beginner Novice title and 1 leg towards his Rally Advanced title! I couldn't be happier and Casper couldn't be happier either. Please continue your great work. My husband is looking into starting a dog too! He is seeing the wonders it has done for Casper.

Submitted by: Texanna
Super intelligent long haired GSD, loves to play "Go Find," & ball 24/7. Lives in Sun City, a retirement community in Hilton Head, SC. Kody is the protector of small dogs at the dog park. He is our fifth GSD.
Kody took my husband totally by surprise when a young boy with MS came by on July 4th while his parents held onto each arm and asked my husband if it would be alright if their son petted Kody. John complied and allowed Kody to approach the child. Kody went up to the child and sniffed him all over then bowed his head and allowed this little boy to pet him. It was difficult for the child to pet him because of his disability but somehow Kody knew this child had something wrong so he just let him pet him and kept his head down and very still. The engagement between Kody and the little boy was so miraculous and made this child so happy that it brought tears to his parents eyes. Kody is the sweetest, kindest GSD I have ever known.

Gracie is 3 years old and is a Border Collie/Greyhound cross with lots of energy and many quirks but we love her very much.

Submitted by: Scott
Here are a couple pics of my new puppy. His name is Dio and he is quite a fireball. These pics were taken when he was 7 weeks old, just a day after I brought him home. On Aug. 11th he turned 6 months old and is doing great in his training. Super smart and tons of drive. I am using the Micheal Ellis system to train him and absolutly love this system. I have most all the videos that Leerburg has produced with Micheal, but am still missing a couple. Dio is currently recovering from a surgery to remove a sock from his intestines. I have no idea how he was able to get a sock to be able to swallow it, I use crates and a pen to contain him and he is never off lead. Thankfully he is recovering quickly and we will be back to training very soon.

Verona is now 1 years old, Anika is now 3 years old.

351. Sophie the Pekingese/Chihuahua Mix
Submitted by: Carrie
Sophie is a pekingese/chihuahua mix! I rescued her from a kill shelter in Tennessee and she was very sick when I adopted her. After a few months of multitudes of specialists and testing, she got diagnosed with everything from IBS to food allergies. I was told her condition would be chronic and incurable. Upon doing a lot of research and talking to a few different people (Cindy being one of them), I rejected her diagnoses. I found a specialist online who pointed me in the right direction. Turns out, she had a severe case of giardia. Since aggressively treating her, she's been as healthy as a racehorse. I switched her to raw upon recovering from her parasites, and she is extremely healthy now. She's a very active little one who keeps me on my toes. She is fiercely independent, but I love her for it and wouldn't change her. A lot of people would say that she is lucky to have me, but I think we are both very lucky to have each other. I love her more than words can say and I can't remember what my life was like without her in it.

German Shepherd Dog
Birthdate: January 19, 2010
Kuruk and I are active in Schutzhund and will be going for our BH mid September and our Schutzhund 1 this November (if all goes according to plan!). He is an awesome training partner and I used a lot of Michael Ellis’s techniques in his training this time around. From the very beginning I taught obedience without a leash or collar – this way the dog has to think and is not cued by the leash, which I realized we really CAN’T help doing (as the video says!). Needless to say, I get more comments on his great obedience work – he is a happy, precise worker and is a joy to handle. And last but not least – the best friend I could ever hope for.

(Brecken Vom Leerburg).  She has turned out to be a great herding dog. She already has one High in Trial and one High Combined Sheep & Ducks as well as many 1st place awards.  I have a lot of good pictures of her herding, but these two were the most fun.

372. Muttley
Submitted by: Paul
This is (Sir) Muttley on July 15, 2011, on his seventh birthday, getting ready to ride back home after a walk on the NCR trail in Baltimore County. Muttley was rescued from the streets in a Baltimore ghetto in February 2006, and I saved him from euthanasia. He was my first dog as an adult, and he was quite a challenge, but we have been very good for each other. His breed mix is unknown, but probably some GSD and perhaps Mastiff and/or Rottweiler. He is about 80 lb and he looks something like a small Anatolian Shepherd dog.

378. Rust & Layla the GSDs and Coco the Chihuahua
Submitted by: Belinda
The 1st picture is Rusty our male 2 year old german shepherd.  He's still intact and super friendly with people, kids, other dogs and animals.  Thought I'd get him neutered when we started having aggression problems. We're still waiting, lol.
The 2nd picture is of Layla (our 1 1/2 year old spayed female german shepherd) and Coco (our long haired 2 year old neutered male Chihuahua).  Layla finished her raw hide chew treat and is waiting paitiently for Coco to abandon his chew treat.   The shepherds get along very well with our Chihuahua as well as our cat and 2 bunnies.  If I leave the bunny hutch open, Rusty will go put his big head inside the hutch and lick the bunnies and the bunnies don't mind at all. 
I was always a bit intimidated by german shepherds until we got Rusty and I learned for myself what wonderful companions they truly are.
 
379. Rocket
Submitted by: Mary
Rocket - Sport Dog, 6/10/0, Cosmo (Border Terrier)/Ambush (Malinois/Border Collie)
After being bred for flyball , Rocket (Rock-It) was returned to his sire's owner. They worked with him for a number of months, and then he came to live with me in January. I completed Michael Ellis'  Basic Obedience course in October 2010 with my Australian Shepherd Ariel (Agility Dog Champion, USDAA). Rocket is working at becoming a competitive agility dog. Because of his foundation in marker training, he has been a quick study in agility, e.g., mastering reliable, independent 12 weave poles in under a month. He competed in his first USDAA agility trial in July.

Submitted by: JoEllen

Raider passed away at age 9 from cancer. He liked to lay on his back playing with the handcuffs. He would bite the cuff, it would tighten up and wrap around and he’d bite it again, he would play with them for hours. That was his favorite toy.
Photo 2: Pepper, age 11, Border Collie
Pepper is a wonderful, intense Border Collie that loves agility and her toys, any toy, actually. She’ll turn a milk carton into a toy.

We feel safe and secure with the three watch dogs. It is a team effort. Someone coming in the door wakes the first one up Mattie (2 yr old GSD). She wakes Gunnar up (5 yr old GSD) to bark at them. Which finally wakes the old girl up ( Chelsea 12 yr old Lab) who licks them into submission.
 
390. Rocco the Kind Shepherd
Submitted by: Luis
Rocco is a King Shepherd. Even though we live in the city, he finds his way to adventure through making use of ALL the parks natural areas, climbing and exploring every nook and cranny there is. I hope to have him perform in Agility and Tracking. His nose is always to the ground, so I'm hoping we can also become a successful Search and Rescue team.

393. Matsi the Doberman Pinscher
Submitted by:
Here is a couple of pic’s of our 5-year old Doberman Pinscher  whose name Matsi ( Nez Perce Indian name meaning Brave but Sweet), pronounced Mot see.
The breeder from whom we got Matsi  really wanted us to show him, but we had told her from the beginning that we strictly wanted a family dog, we wanted him to meet breed standards but he wouldn’t have to be perfect for the show ring.  Matsi did turn out to be a show dog – just not the way we expected him to be.  He had a “walk-on” part as a guard dog in the Kansas City Opera ‘Aida’.  He is such a good breed representative that by the time the show was over even those afraid of dogs were coming over to give a scratch and get a toe lick. The lead soprano was initially terrified of him but he came to become her “good luck charm” and she would come find us back stage before her solo and rub his belly – kinda of like a Buddha in a Chinese restaurant!
