Meet our dogs… Bear, Little, MayMay, Cozy and Sampa.
Last year, I became a Certified Beginner Bee Keeper. And, this spring we welcomed our newest pets, about 16,000 gentle Italian honey bees, into our family of dogs, and birds. Here is a video welcoming our new bees…
Keeping honey bees is a very hands on endeavor, especially during the first year. We need to make food for them and feed them, do daily checks of food levels and weekly checks and maintenance of the hives…and we love it.
Here is what the delicious bee food that I make for my bees looks like…
It did not take long for our bees to grow out of their one box hives. So, with the help of our curious dogs, we put together and painted a second “large brood super” for each hive.
Here are the hives in June 2014. The bees seem to really like the extra room…
This is one of my assistants, Bear, a german shepherd helping me with feedings, inspections and general maintenance of the hives.
And here is our beautiful backyard, which would not be complete without our amazing bees.

SleepyDogTraining Loves Presenting @ Career Day/New Jersey Dog Trainer/New York Dog Trainer/SleepyDogTraining
Cozy and I had a wonderful time at Park Elementary School in Newark,NJ. We were invited to present at their Career Day this year. Cozy and I make the perfect team for these types of events… I love the opportunity to talk about animals with kids. And Cozy just plain loves kids. Cozy and I got to show off her awesome skills and got to answer the many great questions asked by everyone who attended. Cozy was loving every kid she met…and she met and interacted with a LOT of kids today. Yes, there were well over 200 hands on her! What a wonderful school – students, teachers, aids, and administrators. We were welcomed with open arms by all…

Meet the McGowen pack…
Here is what Christine McGowen wrote about her experience with SleepyDog Training -
“Can you recommend a good trainer?” The infamous question that I was not able
to answer with 100% certainty. Sure I had met trainers, used trainers, sat in
on training sessions just to see what was out there–however, I was looking for
someone who not only operated a thriving business but who also had a heart for
the lost and dying dogs being euthanized daily because it was a passion that I
shared as well. I met Sarah on FB and knew this is who I felt confident
recommending. Not only did I recommend her but used her myself when we adopted
our third dog. She gave me great insight into what was going on in my pack and
why they were doing some of the things they were doing, i.e. leash reactivity
with other dogs, pulling on a leash, toy guarding etc. She made the training
sessions fun, informative and by doing my “homework” and going over what we
learned, I saw many changes take place–some were accomplished that very hour!
So if you ask me who do I recommend? I can now say Sarah from Sleepydog
Training with total confidence. She has helped us tremendously.

This training game teaches impulse control and respecting personal space as well as the must have command, “leave it.”
Thank you Christine, Brandy, Harley and Ziggy!
A companion animal is a living being — a commitment– not a “thing” to be tossed away at your convenience…
The story of Nina (AHS Newark facility) is absolutely heartbreaking. If you’re interested in adopting her, please direct all inquiries to that facility at 973-824-7080.
This is so sad…after almost 4 years in a loving home, poor Nina was returned to the shelter. Our evaluators were there at the time and were stunned at the actual deep down cries and heartbreaking howls coming for this sweet girl when her mom left her. We need to find Nina another home quickly. Dogs like her go downhill quickly and can actually die of a broken heart. She was evaluated yesterday and we are asking that you share her story.
Nina is a lovely red pittie girl. This 5-year-old sweetheart was recently surrendered when her owner of four years moved to an apartment with a no pet policy. When Nina’s owner walked out that day, she cried and howled for her to return. Nina is a laid back loving girl. This dog was well cared for, as she has several extra pounds on her and is extremely loving and people focused. She walks nicely on leash and is great about being handled from head to toe. Nina will play with toys and shares them with ease. Nina surprisingly didn’t know what to do with the rawhide. Nina shares her food dish like a true lady and takes treats gently. If you already have a canine friend Nina would like to meet them to see if they could be a good match. Nina is such an easy pup and would make a wonderful addition to most any household.
