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.

When you live in a multi-dog household, it is important to properly manage your pack.
This photo illustrates one of many exercises I do with my dogs to keep harmony within my pack, and my home.
I have a strong relationship based on trust and respect with my dogs. Three of these dogs had major behavioral issues. As you can see, they have come a long way.
Want this kind of harmony with your pack, in your home?
What are you waiting for?
