We’ve been working with Josh, an adult pit bull since he was adopted by his wonderful forever family. Josh, like many rescued dogs had a very rough life before he was rescued. He has scars all over his face, neck and front legs from whatever happened in his life before rescue. luckily, the family who adopted josh saw through the scars and decided to foster him, and then adopted him. Like most dogs, Josh has forgiven and left behind most of the baggage of his early life. He is a super sweet and funny boy, who is living the good life with his adoptive forever family, who love him dearly.
Recently we have begun the process of socializing Josh with other dogs. below are photos of what that looks like. we start with 2 leashed dogs in a neutral area, then go into the resident dogs yard with both dogs, then if all goes well, into the home.
The photos below are of step one, walking in a neutral area, a local park…
Josh did really well with our Cozy at the park, in Josh’s yard, and in Josh’s house.
We can’t wait to introduce Josh to another calm dog like Cozy…
Keep up the good work Josh and family!

Living With and Training a Pack of Dogs/SleepyDogTraining/NJ Dog Trainer/NY Dog Trainer/Pa Dog Trainer
At sleepydog llc. we live with our own pack of dogs. They are a well trained pack but that said, we are constantly working on their skills to keep them well trained and happy.
For example most mornings our dogs wait in the kitchen in a sit, stand or down stay, to be released one at a time into the yard…
Once in the yard, they wait in a sit, stand or down stay to be released once again…
After these types of short sweet training sessions, our dogs enjoy playing ball, chasing squirrels, and playing dog games with each other.
We choose different types of training /behavioral mini sessions like these to reinforce the positive behaviors we want and need.
The best thing about working our dogs daily, is that they are happy, satisfied dogs who are a pleasure to live with.
want happy well balanced dogs? want dogs who “listen” to you?
“because, at the end of the day, a sleepydog is a happy dog.”
May 2016 be a wonderful year for all sleepydogs and their families!!!
sleepydog llc. had worked with beautiful sweet pit bulls Nyla and Molly after they were adopted a year or two ago. We were called recently when a third dog , Tink, a young energetic pit bull was added to the mix.
Tink is young and very energetic and came to her new adoptive home without much or any training.
Here I am evaluating the three dogs together –
It was evident that Nyla and Molly just needed a quick refresher. Tink, on the other hand, needed to start her foundation training and behavioral work from the beginning.
*This session was photographed by the wonderful owners of these dogs- beautiful pit bulls Nyla, Molly, and Tink.

“Just wanted to give you a shout out. Little Albus made his first trip to the ER this week with an ear infection and hot spot. While there, the staff commented on how he was the best patient they had and certainly the best trained bulldog they’ve ever seen. He sat, stayed, and came like a pro. I told them it was due to you. Thank you again! He’s feeling better now but hates the cone. We miss you!”
NB- Albus recently graduated from our popular Puppy Basics Package.
Here is a video of his last Puppy Basics session, during which we practiced the recall, among other things. Our helper dog Cozy came along to make this session even more fun and informative!
Keep up the good work Albus and family!
