402. Annie
Submitted by: Brittany
Annie 3yrs.old, Little Miss Annie came to us at 12 months. Annie spent her first 12 months of her life in a crate that she grew into so sad. She never saw anything but the bars of her crate, She was feed through the bars and ugly aggressive more than anyone could image. Who would have ever thought she would turn out to be such a wonderful friend. Now she is a full of life, there is no day that goes by that she doesn't bring a laugh or two into our lives. The energy she has is amazing as you can see in one photo she has her eyes on the go-frr balls her favorite by far. Her next step is to get her into some herding lessons to give her the best life ever. She needs a job that she was breed to do. Can't wait for her to finally have everything she deserves in life.
 
403. Leonidas
Submitted by: Lacey
Leonidas came into my life just four months after my husband was shot and killed in our home. He has been my therapy and has brought energy and love into my life on my darkest days. Learning to teach and train him has become a welcome and healthy distraction from the grief I suffer with the loss of my husband. Once a timid puppy he has transformed into a stable and confident dog who loves people and wants to work. Just this month I almost lost Leonidas too, due to a lower bowel obstruction, and it was devastating. Thankfully he has made a full recovery. Both photos were taken by me in Alaska.

She is a great dog, although not for everyone by any means. If you note her teeth are reallly worn down, from playing fetch, I have some physical limitations now so to exercise her I play fetch a lot, she was actually barking at me to throw the ball (not a great idea, I know but I let things slide sometimes).

489. Donner the German Shepherd Dog & Laddie the Golden Retriever
Submitted by: Christine
The German Shepherd Dog is Donner, certified in human remains detection (area, wilderness, evidence, buildings) with the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department.  Just turned nine in August.  He has been certified since 2005, and has worked many wilderness searches for lost hikers (presumed deceased), and many "evidence" searches - clandestine grave sites, etc.  In one event, he was able to locate a severed arm of a freeway accident victim.  I adopted him from the Redlands Humane society after he was taken away from his owners due to neglect at one year and four months of age.  He passed our evaluation for hunt and prey drive beautifully and has been working happily ever since.

The Golden Retriever is Laddie, certified in live-find search and rescue (area, wilderness, buildings) with the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department.  Just turned 10 in July.  He has been certified since 2004.  He has worked quite a few wilderness searches for missing hikers/lost persons (Alzheimer, suicidal subjects).  I purchased him from a family who said he was too much puppy for them at the age of seven months.  He, too, evaluated beautifully in hunt and prey drive.  He is a typical GR, everyone is his new best friend, and he has never met a stranger (lost or otherwise) he doesn't love!

As you know, these dogs are not just used to locate the subject, but to also clear large areas quickly so resources can be moved elsewhere in the hope of locating our missing subjects in a timely manner.

This is "Layla" (Layla Von Vardeman Hof) she is 7 months old.  I had a childhood GSD and when our 16 yr old lab passed away last summer I knew what our family needed next.

We got her at 8 weeks and have loved having her. Both her parents are German born Sch IPO careered dogs so I have high hopes for this little girl, if us as trainers don't mess her up!

Submitted by: Melodie
My GSD is a rescue from the NH animal rescue league. I adopted him at 5 months old with hip dysplasia and a grade 5-6 heart murmur. He wasn't expected to see his first birthday, which we celebrated four months ago. He is a warm, loving member of the family, who reminds me daily that life is meant to be enjoyed each and every day. He is a happy boy who has taught me so much more than I will ever be able to teach him.
He is my first GSD and I have found your website information extremely valuable. I purchased a cow bell from your website for him to use during out walks in the woods with his friends. Since that purchase, I have been receiving and enjoying your e-mails. Thanks for sharing all your wisdom.

538. Jake
Submitted by: Paula
Jake passed away July 7, 2011 at about 15 yrs old (we took him in as a stray 14 years ago, so his age is a guess). My husband found Jake in his employer's parking lot in 1997. He was scrawny and beat up, so my husband gave him a cheeseburger from the vending machine and brought him home. We were surprised to learn he was a pit bull, but we put all stereotypes aside and he became our best friend and greatest joy for 14 years. He was a loyal, happy go-lucky dog, and we will never forget him. It's because of him that we adopted another pit bull from the animal shelter. Jake was a great ambassador for his breed. This picture was taken while fishing over the fourth of July weekend a few years back.

544. Sky, Lego, Blue
Submitted by: Teresa
Photo 1: This photo was taken by my friend Wendy Tisdale. Wendy has given me permission to enter this photo in the photo contest. It pictures my three poodles in an old (leaky) Sportspal canoe at my pond on Vancouver Island in Canada. The day was one of the first warm ones this summer – one of those happy warm days when the sun is one’s friend. I have a framed print of this on our sun room wall.
The poodles are:
L-R
Bonvivant Black Sky CGN (10.5 yr toy poodle - Sky)
Ch. U-SHR Tudorose Queen’s Own Wit JH WC CDX AGNS AGNJS (5 yr standard poodle – Lego)
U-HR Tudorose True Blue JH WCX CDX AGN (9.5 yr standard poodle – Blue)
Photo 2: This photo was also taken by my friend Wendy Tisdale on very different day: a cold and pouring-with-rain fall hunt test day on Vancouver Island, Canada. Wendy snapped this photo of a fast-moving dark-coloured dog in the rain. The photo makes my heart sing. Blue is my first dog and it was with her that I entered the world of hunting and retrieving tests. She is not a natural performance dog but she is an example of a dog who can be taught step by step what to do and how to respond in training situations. As soon as an expectation of her becomes black and white, it becomes her game and then she is a joy to work with. This photo shows her at her best: focused on the job at hand, taking it seriously…and with inherent joy knowing that she is doing a job well.

546. Hank
Submitted by: Justine
Hank was three years old at the time the photos were taken. I rescued him from the SPCA where I worked at the time. He was a dog that lived in the backyard for the first 9 months of his life with no training or human interaction what-so-ever, and then was given up to the shelter when the family got tired of feeding him. Being that he was a purebred lab, the shelter expected him to get adopted quickly. This, however, proved to be untrue. Hank lived at the shelter for almost a year. Over that year him and I bonded, as I was his trainer. I learned everything I know by religiously following you and Ed. I worked with Hank every single day, rain or shine, and I took him everywhere I possibly could with me. Hank became a very well trained dog that nobody wanted. So I took him home. Sadly, I had to put Hank to sleep last year when he was 5 years old. It was the hardest decision I ever made.

575. Nero the Pitbull/Boxer & Kai the Border Collie
Submitted by: Spencer
Photo 1: I would like to submit this photo of my boy Nero. Be cautioned, mixing a Pit-Bull and a Boxer can create a monster... Training Nero has been the most difficult task of my life. His stubbornness knows no bounds. If you play tug with him he just might pull you over, he has no awareness of his strength. Regardless of what I tell him, everyone outside is trying to get into our house. He's been known to gently comfort my wife when she's crying, even though he has little time for affection and gentle isn't in his vocabulary. I've watched him fight off waves off bees by snapping them out of the air, he has no regard for his own safety. There is nothing that can stop him. Needless to say, there is no amount of trouble Nero could cause, there is nothing I won't be patient enough to teach him, I love him with all of my heart and he's my boy.
Photo 2: This is my other dog Kai. She is a three month old Border Collie. She is from a working line and is amazing! By the way, Nero just adores her. They are very excited about being able to play together when she's older! :) She loves us dearly, along with barking. We definitely have to include that. Kai + Happy + Toys = Barking. Kai's training is progressing awesome! What took six months with Nero is nearly accomplished with her. Boxer/Pit-bull's are difficult to train. :( She could be a poster child for Ellis's methods. She will recall off of almost anything and engagement in new environments is a breeze. Her athleticism is astounding. When I tell her to go in her pen, she jumps in with ease and spins in the air so that she can quickly retrieve her treat. Well those are some tidbits about her. There isn't enough time in the day to explain how much she makes us happy. Border Collies are an amazing breed but I will say this. They are a trainers dream but their energy would be most people's nightmare.

579. Sancho the Boxer
Submitted by: Kelly
I'd love to introduce you to Sancho, our boxer puppy. He is our very first dog and the absolute love of our lives. Sancho came home to live with us at nine weeks of age, and we will be celebrating his first birthday in a few short weeks. He is curious, clever, ridiculously athletic (he makes sure we exit the house for at least a couple miles a day) and a huge goofball whose favorite toy is a now-filthy stuffed orange cat. We have learned so much in this last year, and certainly have the Leerburg training videos as something to thank!
In the second photo, Sancho is sharing the stage with our 11 year old cat, Thai. There is always competition for the sunny spot between those two.
 
580. Boca the Belgian Malinois
Submitted by: Stephanie
Photo 1: Cain Biting Off More Than He Can Chew – This is a picture of our Belgian Malinois puppy, Boca with her litter-mate, Cain, biting her tail. Don’t feel too bad for her – she was the terror of the litter and Cain is getting his payback!
Photo 2: I Said I don’t Want My Picture Taken! – This is a little more representative of Boca, our sweet Belgian Malinois puppy, when she was 8 weeks old.
Boca has been a handful since she was born to Chad’s pride and joy Dutch Shepard, Loki, (whose grandmother was a Belgian Malinois). As Boca was being born, she broke through the sack, turned her head and bit Loki on the tail, hard! She is a complete sweetheart and keeps us laughing constantly.

583. Hannah the Belgian Malinois
Submitted by: Tamara
Let me introduce you to Hannah, our 15-month old, purebred Belgian Malinois. She is 78 pounds of Belgian Malinois intelligence, energy, and drive! One of Hannah’s favorite past times when she is outside is to find pieces of wood of varying shapes and sizes and build woodpiles on the property. Once she has built her woodpiles, she selects a piece of wood from one of the piles, picks it up in her jaws and proudly trots around the property with it. When she is done, she finds a grassy spot in the yard and lies down and starts chewing on her tasty treat. She doesn’t eat the wood - just chews on it. In the two photos selected, Hannah has her wood “carcass” by her side. From a distance, this large piece of wood does resemble a carcass (like a deer). Hannah loves to drag it all over the place!

Submitted by: Kim
Here are 2 pictures of my dog Suesse. She is a female, sable German Shepherd and is 3 year's old. For some reason, when she gets nervous during a rainstorm she likes to climb up on things...one of her favorite "safe places" is looking at herself in the mirror of the bathroom while standing on the toilet lid. (I don't know why this makes her feel safe??).

592. Jag the GSD & Banshe the Irish Terrier
Submitted by: Peggy
Here are 2 photos of ours to share. We are an active family with adventurous and athletic dogs. We spend the summer at the lake and all our dogs have enjoyed an assortment of water sports over the years.
Photo 1: The first is of our GSD Jag taken in the summer of 2010. Jag was born on Nov 24, 2006 so he was almost 4 at the time of the photo. His favorite activity is chasing his Flying Squirrel toy with a flying dock jump. In fact, this toy and activity have been used with your marker training techniques to train a selection of behaviors for obedience and rally. I taught the send away on this 75 foot long dock with the reward being the dock jump for the toy. The 4 foot wide dock is a great spot to work focussed heeling and the backing up for rally. I wish I could take this toy into the ring!!!! Jag now has 2 legs of his Utility and we are aiming for the 3rd shortly.
Photo 2: The second photo is of our wild Irish Terrier Banshe. The photo was taken in the summer of 2009 when she was a ripe old lady of 13 years. Banshe was the family pet and she was small enough and brave enough to join in in all the kids' crazy activities from tubing to the ski chair and to water skiing!! THe quality of the water skiing pictures were not as good as the ski chair but they are pretty funny still. Banshe passed away in the spring of 2010 at 14 years of age and my now 22 year old daughter took on a rescue mini pinscher from a puppy mill in Pennsylvania to fill her shoes. This new portable pet is also water skiing, and tubing and ski chairing so I'll enter his pictures next year.
 
593. Kisses
Submitted by: Rebecca
Her name is "Kisses" as in Hershey's Kisses, and she is 4 years old. She was born at the Belleville Humane Society, and they named the puppies after candy, aka Gummy Bear, Reeses, Skittles, and Kisses. She does LOVE to give kisses, ironically. My husband retired from the Army recently, and when he would walk her in uniform everyone would ask him if she is a military dog. My daughter was afraid of dogs, and to get her over that I got her the puppy 4 years ago and they are truly like sisters. Her hobbies are chasing squirrels and taking long naps on her sheepskin bed from you guys! Her best friend is a Rottwieler named Samson who lives down the street. My daughter had a "wedding" for them.

595. Willie
Submitted by: Paula
We found Willie along a country road on a cold March day. He was a ball of mats, teeth rotten, a real mess. He was not potty trained (or too old to remember) and acted like he had never played or peed on a post while taking a walk. We knew no one would take him, so we kept him. He happily wore diapers as he bobbled around the house. It was a challenge learning how to best care for him without losing our mind or having our home destroyed, but we adapted and grew to love him a great deal. I can still hear his funny little sounds he made when he chewed his food and the way his ears flopped as he bounced around the house. What a little cutie he was.
