Took it of my dog Heiko before digital cameras were affordable!!

It was taken at Sebec Lake in Maine. The second we opened the car door he would run down to the dock and we would hear a big splash!!

28. Feta the English Cream Golden
Submitted by: Jason
Attached you will find a couple of my favorite pics of my English Cream Golden, Feta. He is a certified therapy dog, and I’ve actually watched him crawl up to infants on his stomach and roll over for belly rubs…..he just instinctually knows how to be sensitive and delicate. To say he’ll be a good distraction for those ill or injured is an understatement, and I’m fortunate enough to get a front-row seat to that once we start volunteering regularly. Simply, it would be criminal for me NOT to share him with as many people as possible.
One pic was taken at about 3 months (my absolute favorite), and the other was taken a few months ago as he turned 2. We visit that Lincoln Park pond for him to get his fix of geese and duck watching, and while he hasn’t bagged one yet he’s quite the rat and rabbit hunter around Wrigleyville. So he thinks anyway…..haha. We’re headed up to northern Minnesota next week for his first lake/boat experience, I can’t wait.
29. Bella the Australian Shepherd

Submitted by: Nita
The dog is Bella, 2 yo Australian Shepherd.
Bella is one of those dogs who gives her all when you ask. She loves to work and train and is active in obedience, rally, herding, and nose work. We hope to pick up tracking and any other activities that pique our interest.

30. Taku the Alaskan Malamute

Submitted by: Sue
Taku is an Alaskan Malamute who participates in confirmation and weight pull. He does rally obedience and agility for fun but doesn't compete. I did not know what his name meant until after I named him. Be careful what you name your dog. Taku is super energetic to the point where it is uncharacteristic for the breed. In Alaska, the big, windy storms are called Taku.

Submitted by: Garrett
Skita is our 11 year old German Shepard dog. She was a rescue. We actually stole her when she was 11 months old and days from death. Our vet told us we were wasting our time. 11 years later he is still scratching his head.
Melon Head is our three legged Belgian Malinois. She too is a rescue, found on the streets of Baltimore with a mangled leg. The vets tried to save it, but it did not work out. She is a ball chasing machine, and only has a problem when cornering at high speeds to the left.
Shiloh is our 5 year old German Shepherd dog. He too is a rescue, he lived with a shut in( he was loved to much). When we got him he was 160 lbs. and could not run. He is now 110 lbs. and very fit and happy. He sees life thru bone goggles.
35. Deputy Merle G. BoJangles the Catahoula-Coonhound Mix
Submitted by: Candice
Above is our pup, Deputy Merle G. BoJangles. Merle is our 19 month old Catahoula-Coonhound mix, who we rescued as a 20 lb 8 week old pup. Merle is a dog with an extremely high prey drive, always willing to work and do a job. He loves to swim and he has a "grade A sniffin' nose," too, as he is an expert at finding rats in the lumber piles.
I've followed all of Ed's advice since the day I brought Merle home, and have recently begun e-collar training (thank you!!!!)...He's becoming such a great dog---still clumsy (he wants to be an agility dog...haha) and stubborn at times---but we love him. :) His favorite toys are his Orbee on a string and his homemade Tug :).

Kiba is my current search and rescue dog. He is a tracking/trailing dog. He is stubborn as a mule but that's what makes him so good at his job. He loves to sleep on his back with all four paws in the air. He also makes some of the strangest noises anyone has ever heard.

82. Tully

Submitted by: Kris
Tully is an amazing boy who just happens to be the pilot dog for an AAT training program I've developed at the small college where I work. He is a graduate of Fido Beta Kappa and earned his CGC title at just 4 months of age! As soon as he was old enough to test (1 year) we got his AAT title under his belt and he is soon to start his therapy work at the Villager Inn Assisted Care Facility in Castle Rock, WA. Once Tully and I have been "on the job" for 2 years, I plan to attain my AAT Instructor certification from the Delta Society and will be offering classes (with Tully as my co-pilot) here at the College. He's a pretty amazing guy and I can't imagine my life without him.
I've included two photos of Tully here . . . one (which is too adorable NOT to include) was taken at 13 weeks of age and the other is taken just a few months ago in his AAT vest, standing in front of the wall of accolades that we keep up for him here at school.

88. Jetta and Maxie the Pomeranians
Submitted by: Tina
Photo 1: Jetta is an adorable Pomeranian. She loves to play tug with her toys. Sometimes we think she's a bit confused about being a dog since she almost seems catlike the way she bathes. She always cleans her face and paws like a cat. But then again our cat thinks its a dog, she always comes running when the dogs are doing their tricks.
Photo 2: Maxie is just a total treasure. She has the cutest expressions and is so smart. We sometimes have to spell things so she won't know what we're talking about. She loves to snuggle and perform her tricks. She also is very photogenic
89. Maggie
Submitted by: Claire
"Maggie" is my service dog used for mobility purposes for the past 6 1/2 years. Here she is playing with a neighbor's grandson. She is wonderful with everyone from a strange child to a person in a hospital bed and cheerfully works for me when necessary. At age nine she is in perfect health.
90. Riot
Submitted by: Nancy
This is Riot. She is an 8 month old Malinois/Dutch Shepherd. She is a handful at times, well, actually she is a handful all of the time. But I love her to pieces and wouldn't trade her for anything. As you can see in the second picture taken at 7 months of age, she has a full bite and loves to play.

They have their Canine Good Citizen titles and they are registered Therapy Dogs with Therapy Dogs International (TDI) and have done Reading to Dogs programs helping challenged kids get the confidence to read aloud and improve their skills and also have logged many nursing home visit hours. They have some ribbons in AKC Rally, too. We enjoy our time with our dogs!
94. Rain
Submitted by: Mandy
Rain was in a local pound and scheduled to be euthanized on the day I picked her up. She had been running loose and evaded capture for 2 weeks. While in the pound she very frightened and snarled and growled at everyone. I saw her on and went and adopted her. She is now a wonderful dog, excels at obedience and agility and is a wonderful addition to our family.

98. Kenai the German Shepherd
Submitted by: Hilda
Kenai is a goofy, very friendly German Shepherd. Loves to be a ham for the camera, especially if treats are involved. She almost died of parvo as an 8 week old puppy so missed some critical weeks of training opportunity. For almost 2 years, she was very enthusiastically crazy whenever she saw people or other dogs. We tried various local trainers for about a year, but it was Leerburg's articles and DVDs that really made the difference in her obedience, especially off leash. Thanks for all your great products!
99. Stasi
Submitted by: Deborah
I rescued Stasi when he was about a year old. He had been chained to a tree his entire life and was poorly socialized and aggressive. I have worked extensively with him using a motivational approach. Since then, he has done Rally Obedience, Agility and Sheep herding - both small flock fetch style and large flock tending style (what GSD's were originally breed for). Attached are photos of Stasi performing small flock fetch style herding.
100. Ender the GSD & Kwana the Staffordshire Terrier
Submitted by: John
Attached are two pics of my dogs, Ender (GSD) and Kwana (a long-legged Staffordshire Terrier aka 'pit bull'). Ender's about 24 months in the photos. He's East and West German Schutzhund stock, parents were both Schutzhund 3. He's got incredible drive and is very hard. After testing to determine if he had the right stuff for Schutzhund training, he very calmly walked over to the agitator and peed on the fellow's leg. I think he was expressing his opinion of the testing with great clarity. Kwana is of indeterminate age, about 12 now. Ender doesn't argue with her about possession of bones. She was in the house first and is very self-confident.
She mostly sleeps, preferably next to people; when she's awake she likes to eat, then lean up against people and prepare to sleep. When she was young she flew through our woods, becoming airborne in relentless pursuit of squirrels.
101. Shady Grove
Submitted by: Randee
Shady Grove (named for a bluegrass song; I wrote new lyrics for it about Shady). 4 1/2 years of age. Adopted from an elderly man who had a stroke 3 weeks after his wife died.

102. Luther the GSD
Submitted by:
I took this photo of our 5 month old GSD yesterday. I really love it. He looks so regal and wise ( but then I may be biased). He has been a wonderful addition to our family and has settled into life on our farm here in Australia beautifully. He is great with our 3yr old son and friendly with everyone... just how a young GSD puppy should be. He loves all our animals and really is just a pleasure to have around.
103. Loial the Mastiff
Submitted by: Hilary
Loial is a Mastiff aged 2 years 8 months. He's a New Zealand show champion but mostly just our lovely pet. He's about 90 kgs so can be a handful at times, but is a baby at heart and loves his sofa and teddy.

110. Kwik the Belgian Malinois and Monty the Yorkshire Terrier
Submitted by: Chris
Here is a picture of our Belgian Malinois "Kwik" and his little buddy "Monty" a Yorkshire Terrier. It was taken at the top of park near our house in Boston, MA. i just love they are both looking out over the hill toward bay in the distance. Kwik the Malinois is 3 and half years old. I got Kwik from a friend of mine who is the head trainer of the Boston Police K9 unit, were I was assigned as a civilian. He knew I wanted a GSD or a Malinois but not a full fledged working dog. I do mostly agility with him and he's just a great all around pet. Monty the Yorkie came to me when my girlfriend and I moved in together (she had the Yorkie and he is 4 years old) and he is a great little dog. Both dogs get along great and are best friends.

112. Emma
Submitted by: Ashley
These 2 pictures are of our dog Emma. She is half Yellow Lab and half Rottweiler. She is 3 1/2 years old. She is an amazing dog. Just recently she had to have TPLO surgery on her back leg and she was awesome through the whole thing. We had to travel about 2 1/2 hours from our home in Springfield MO to Overland Park Kansas to have it done and that's not easy when Emma gets car sick. Thank goodness for motion sickness pills form the vet. She is now getting back to normal and loving life. She is such a joy to us. For a dog that weighs 110 pounds she is so gentle with our son (her best friend) that is getting ready to turn 2 next month. He climbs all over her and she just sits there and lets him. I want to Thank You! for your puppy training DVD's. If it wasn't for the them I probably would have given up on the puppy that was a handful. We often joke that our son was easier his first year than she was her first 6 months. I love my Emma-Bear and am so glad to have such a wonderful dog in my life.
113. Indi the Weimaraner
Submitted by: Carla
Here are some very nice photos of my dog Indi (short for Indiana Jones), a 7 year old Weimaraner. We earned our CDX title in AKC obedience last October with respectable scores. Though he is not an easy dog for a green handler, he is a kick in the pants and just couldn't ask for a different dog to earn my first titles ever with in obedience.

115. Sammy
Submitted by: Tina
I had bought Sammy on July 24, 2011.  He was 3 1/2 weeks old.  His mommy wasn't producing enough milk, so the owner was bottle-feeding all the pups.  I am a stay at home mom, so I offered to bring him home and bottle feed him myself.  I have always been an animal person!! The formula recipe that the owner told me to use wasn't working so I searched and searched and found your site.  I have been feeding him your formula ever since and he is doing great.  When I got him, he weighed 4.8lb and now he weighs 10.4lb.  I talked to the owner about his litter mates and asked if she has kept in touch with the other pups and she said yes.  I asked what their weight was and she told me that one had died, and the others weigh 8lb, 7lb, 6lb, and 5lb.  I thought to myself that I must be doing something right!!!  Thanks to your site and all the info I have found and from you emailing me back, you have made my little sammy a healthy looking boy.

I have also recommended the leerburg web site to my friends and people i meet at the park or just walking with jack von dee.

117. Dexter the Rottweiler Mix
Submitted by: Nicole
I saved, or actually stole him when he was a young puppy of 7 weeks… his previous owners or should I rather say idiots didn’t take care of him at all. They took him away from his mom way too soon, and only fed him bread which led to malnutrition and both his front paws were completely disfigured. My vet said that it would take 3 months for him to recover, but in only 2 weeks with good quality food and lots of love and care he recovered completely and could walk normal.
He is turning 3 in October and I love him dearly, he is my friend and protector and I will continue to ensure that he has the best life possible.
118. Dustan the German Shepherd

This is my sable 10 month old GSD named “Cruise.” This picture is untouched with the exception of a little blur to the background. The lighting is real. This was taken just before sunset while we were walking in the forest. I call this picture “Sunset Cruise” I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
121. Kindle & Ozzy the Yorkies
Submitted by: Amanda
Stardust "Kindle" My Dreams - 11 years - Kindle came to me through the Save a Yorkie Rescue at age 5. Kindle is a true Yorkie, he is a King. He's sweet and laid back and prefers to spend the day sitting on your lap being petted than anywhere else. Have a nice comfy blanket or bed? That's where you'll find him sleeping. Kindle enjoy's long walks on the beach (as long as you carry him) and sleeping on the most comfortable pillow in the house.
Ozzy - 1 year and a half. Ozzy's best friend is a Doberman and he believes he's one as well. He has no idea he's 7lbs. He's fearless and fun and loves to play. He's currently being agility trained and absolutely loves it. You won't find this Yorkie resting comfortably on a pillow, you'll find him playing in tunnels, jumping through tires, and "dancing" (one of his circus Yorkie tricks). Ozzy enjoys sitting up high, waiting for his brother Kindle to innocently walk past, and then pouncing onto Kindle's back (in a move we call the Flying Squirrel).
122. Mishka the GSD
Submitted by: Anya
This is my GSD, Mishka who is a little over 2 years old now. As you can see, he is both serious about protection (undeterred by clever disguises) and secure enough in his masculinity to enjoy a bit of unconventional accessorizing. At 10 months old, he survived an intestinal torsion, so I am all the more grateful for his sweet, goofy, sometimes challenging, and always rewarding presence in my life.

Submitted by: Kathryn
Bo (Bo Vom Sablerock), 2 years, 10 months. Bo is a German shepherd that I acquired as a puppy from Sablerock Kennels, Minnesota. I intended to get him into some kind of dog sport, but never made it. However, I have trained him relying on videos from Leerburg and Canine Training Systems. The outcome has been great, and Bo is basically our mostly well mannered kid, buddy and motor home companion.

129. Kayla & Yana
Submitted by: Denne
The older dog (age 4) is Kayla and the younger (5 months) is Yana; both German-bred from Lundborg-Land Kennel in California. Kayla 'trained' Yana and they remained close pals until Kayla left us in 2010, 8 days short of 13 years, which is good for a 100 lb German Shepherd. Kayla was absolutely the leader, with such strong will that I called her "Chief". You could virtually see them communications in the backyard around the pool. I've had dogs all of my life but had nothing so unique as the relationship between these two. I don't give this picture a title, because each person who sees it gets a different 'meaning' from it. I took this picture shortly after bringing Yana home from the Breeder, 10 years ago.
130. Leonidas the Boxer

Submitted by: Vanja
I have several boxers that I love dearly. Every one is unique in their own way. The picture attached is my 4 year old boxer boy Leonidas.
He has special place in my heart as without him I probably would not be here to write this email. I train in obedience and agility but I always wanted that special pretty show dog. LOL Considering my working boxers come from German working lines as I grew up in Europe with German boxers I had hard time warming up to american bred boxer. I opened my heart and after 16 months of searching found really cute red brindle pup I wanted to show. I was in for the big surprise. He became champion in only two months of showing and absolutely no training. He came home as young champion and he would sit and watch through the window me and my other boxers working obedience and agility. I would let him out and he would clear that agility course like a pro. He would repeat inside of the house sit, stay, down and everything I worked with rest of the dogs outside in the field. Leonidas has exceptional drive and focus and he would do anything to please me and protect me. He grew up to be one of the top boxers in the USA multiple best in show and best in show specialty winner. Not only he is a exceptional show dog but he is the one I am grateful for being here today.
He was never though or train to be service dog or help but his bond is so strong. Leo knows when I am sick, when is something terribly wrong and he has his own ways of warning me that is time to see the doctor on different occasions. If it was not for him I would never know and my condition would be discovered to late. He is my heart and my soul-he is my best friend and my guardian angel.

Tonto is a companion to our family, fierce protector and all around awesome dog.

135. Marshal
Submitted by: Mike
We rescued Marshal at the age of 7 months after he became too much for a family to handle due to his constant need for attention and aggression with other dogs. He obtained his CGC and TDI certifications by the time he was 1.5 years old and does some volunteer work at a nearby retirement home. He is working on his CDX & Rally Excellent titles – which we hope to achieve in the next four weeks. He can effectively search a field for any article and is learning how to track.
His training continues with weekly sessions in an advanced class which emphasizes handler trust and out of the ordinary situations.
Marshal was an excellent addition to our family.
((In the second photo, Marshal is the GSD to the left of the Golden Retriever))
136. Gunny the English Cream Lab & Kolby the Black Lab
Submitted by: Cheryl
The first one is of our lab, Gunny, and his best friend Kolby, also a lab. We live in the desert and these boys love walking off leash whenever they can. This was taken as the morning was dawning. They were so innocent then. They thought, as did we, that nothing bad could happen to them. A few months later, they were both bit by a desert sidewinder rattlesnake. Gunny, the English Cream lab, received all of the venom while Kolby received none. Within 35 minutes Gunny was given a vial of anti-venun and within 8 days was as good as new. These two have so much fun together and are best buds.
He is the life of every party. Whenever Gunny arrives, the fun quotient gets dialed up a few notches.
The second photo is a close up of Gunny taking a breather while running with his friends. He’s one happy guy.
137. Charlie the German Shepherd
Submitted by: Frenchie
Meet our lovely 3 year, 10 month old black German Shepherd. His name is Charlie and is the most spoiled dog in the universe. He travels with us everywhere and as proof, you will see one of the pictures here where he is enjoying a hilton bed in one of the pet friendly hotels in the San Antonio, Tx area.
The other picture is waiting on a command by me at our local park.
We LOVE our GSD, he is the most loyal and intelligent pet we have ever had. He understands every single word we say and behaves like a king. He is not aggressive toward people or dogs, he only really hates cats. I posted pictures of dog bites I received from another German Shepherd who came to attack Charlie back in June, 2011. Charlie wasn't even barking at the dog. She just got away from her 10 year old owner and attacked mine and I got bit in the process of separating them. Why would a female attack him, not sure.

In order to complete the contract for our 1st Cane Corso (ION) whom sadly passed away @ 3 months old Due to a freak accident, (deer pellet lodged in his trachea, the vets said they had never seen or heard of such a thing). We purchased one of your DVD’s ~~ Pack Structure to complete our contract with the first breeder. We learned a lot from It & although I believe you are more into the German Sheppard’s, we believe we have a mighty fine looking boyJ He travels a lot with us, camping, Whitewater rafting, hiking, fishing, wherever we go he goes.
141. Mica the German Shepherd
Submitted by: Patrick
Mica is a 4 year old female German Shepherd that was rescued from a Rottweiler Rescue just over seven weeks ago. She has already progressed from pulling me down the street, not knowing (or at least following) any commands too walking nicely beside me, knowing and following the commands of down, sit, come. She is currently in the distraction phase of the recall. She no longer requires two tennis balls to play fetch and will retrieve more items now. She is one of the few praise driven dogs.
142. Thor & Venus the Doberman Pinchsers
Submitted by: Sue
Photo 1: Thor is a Doberman Pinscher who is 9 years old. He is a rescue that I adopted at 13 months old. He appeared to have been kept in the yard and was not trained in anything including house breaking. He spent 6 weeks in foster care before I adopted him. He went on to get his CDX in Obedience in both AKC and ASCA with some very respectable scores and class placements. Besides that he is a well behaved and loved member of our family who gets along well with my other 2 Dobermans and our 3 cats.
Photo 2: Venus - Doberman - Rescue - approx. 5 years old.  Has a CD in AKC obedience.  Trained thru Utility and will compete in Open in the fall.  Is a Certified Therapy dog.

Submitted by: Bernie
My GSD puppy in the photo is Emer. She was almost 12 weeks at the time I took the pic, now she is just over 7 mths and is a very excellent puppy out of some good European working lines. She was born in my town and her litter gained a kind of celebrity status around here. It was surreal when a ten year old girl walked up to me one night about a month ago and asked if Emer was one of the Lubertazzo puppies. I said yeah, how the heck did you know that?

The "brown" photo was taken in 2008 while hiking Westwing Mountain, Peoria, AZ. Cierra was four years old.
The "helicopter photo" was taken in 2011 while flying (for a power line construction contract) near Norwood, CO. Cierra is six years old.
Cierra was labeled as a "vicious biter" by an irresponsible dog owner, and eventually turned in to rescue at the age of three years. We took Cierra in as our first foster dog, and quickly adopted her at the age of four years. She is a wonderful girl who simply needed strong leadership. We fly helicopters and Cierra travels the United States, Canada and Alaska with us. She has flown as high as 13,500' feet elevation in the mountains and clearly loves her helicopter. We love her very much

172. Skye the Rescue American Pit Bull Terrier
Submitted by: Diane
Skye is my rescue American Pit Bull Terrier. She had been abandoned at the house across the street from mine. I found her tied up with no food or water and already skin and bones. For the first few days I was taking food and water over to her but then I got p****d off and took her home. Long story short - she is now mine. My only real issue with her is she climbs fences (had to get an invisible one). She gets along great with my older girl and both of my cats. She is about 3 1/2 years old and is a brindle/white with blue eyes.
173. Lucas & Elton the Doberman Pinschers
Submitted by: Debra
Photo 1: Lucas, having some fun in the snow. Doberman pinscher, 5 years old in photo. One of our rescues and the most wonderful dog we've had. Smart, confident, affectionate and very laid back except for his high prey drive! He wasn't a high drive hunter, he was a SMART one who used observation and stealth. We miss him terribly.
Photo 2: Elton, in the "water zone." Doberman pinscher, 2 years old in photo. Elton loves to play with the hose and sprinkler. We don't allow him to obsess, so he knows he only gets to play for a little while which really focuses his attention. He likes to bite the water.

179. Svartifoss the American Brittany
Submitted by: Diane
This is Svartifoss, our 1.5 year old American Brittany, playing soccer in the Alabama snow on Christmas Day 2010. Who would have thought we would have any snow, much less so much snow? He is 2 now and we played a fast game of soccer this morning (but with no snow).
"Svartifoss" is Icelandic for Black Waterfall. We often think he should be called an "Alabama Absconder," instead of an American Brittany, for all the objects he runs off with.

183. Tex the ACD & Jake the Black Lab
Submitted by: Laura
Tex, a 3 1/2 year old ACD - Tex is the reason that I ever became acquainted with your website and products. He had a history of fear-reactivity, which - with the help of a great trainer and the information I learned on your website and DVDs - we have overcome! He has titled in sheep-herding, but is showing even more promise in the agility arena. Tex is a loyal partner and family dog.
Photo 1: He is pictured here with my son, Ryan.
Photo 2: This is Tex as a baby with our Black Lab, Jake (now 7 years old). As shown in the picture, Jake is very tolerant and has tons of patience. Those qualities coupled with his love for people help him excel in his job as a certified therapy dog. Besides providing emotional support to children, hospital patients, and nursing home residents, Jake loves the sport of Dock Diving.

186. Gracie the GSD
Submitted by: Shriley
Here are 2 photos of my GSD named "Gracie" As these photos show, she can be both regal and a doofus. It was hard to pick just 2, as I have so many different and interesting photos of her. She's a real nut! She loves chasing snowballs thrown with a chuck it and leaves in the fall. If I carry a leaf in my hand, she will do anyhting I ask (she's marker trained). Like I said, she's a nut....
187. Scooby
Submitted by: Tim
Here are my two entries for Scooby the Wonderdog. Scooby just turned 3 this month and it will be two years this November since he rescued us. We met through German Shepherd Rescue of Northern California and knew he was the dog for us. He was given up for being wild (neglected if you ask me) so we enrolled in group classes immediately. To make a long story short he has now been on five Therapy visits since passing Therapy Dog International's certification and has also earned his Canine Good Citizen.

198. Willie the Standard Schnauzer
Submitted by: Peggy
Willie is a Standard Schnauzer from Skansen Kennel in CA. He is always up for our daily walk and some fun, but is a couch potato the rest of the time. He's a registered therapy dog for the Lollypop Farm animal shelter Pet Partners program; once a week we visit the elderly, group homes, adult and disabled day cares or incarcerated youth. Willie was weaned on a raw diet and he is still on it. He also loves fruits and vegetables. When it's too hot or too cold to walk, he walks on the treadmill instead. He has a very high prey drive and the remote training collar has been a huge help. That's my buddy, Willie!
199. Willow the Goldendoodle
Submitted by: Vurla
Willow is now a certified therapy dog and has brightened the day of countless adults and children. We visit anyone that needs us (her) and have spent countless hours providing smiles, offering comfort, calming fears and educating the young on community service. Willow does a number of tricks that amuse and entertain, but the one that seems to have the most impact is when she says her prays either at their bed side or standing with her head bowed between her front legs. I submitted this particular picture because I knew very early on that Willow would one day devote her life to helping others and every time I looked at her heart shaped nose and those loving eyes in this picture it confirmed she was put here for a very special reason.
