Heeler

Zero is the perfect dog and a 100% balls to the walls true cattledog- a true cattledog probably isn’t a good choice for most people. Zero was returned three times to rescue before he found a home with us. He was a terrified out-of-control fear monkey when he first came home. But he shook off every label and blossomed into the magnificent confidant dog he was meant to be. Zero was begging for a home that would provide him with respect, rules, fun, training, structure and above all fairness. Zero lives to be challenged and constantly learn new things. He has thrived in his new life by going for endless hikes and 15 mile runs alongside a motorcycle on trails. By diligent religious repetitive safe and fun training every single day of his life, that continues to this very day. By working for every single toy he wants to play with. By us making time in the middle of the day to take him out for hours and hours of structured exciting exercise. And most importantly by us being his staunchest advocates and protectors. He wasn’t a dog who just needed to be loved, he needed a badass partner who could step to the line and be more for him.

Iron Roy

Roy is a hard dog. His cuteness belies his seriousness. The fastest and most agile dog in our house, the most accomplished. High drive but not biddable. Sensitive but he keeps his own council. The lesson I’ve had to learn is that he demands fairness above all else. Without it there is no dialogue with him about anything.
