Working with a Multi Dog Family/SleepyDogTraining.com/NJ Dog Trainer/NY Dog Trainer/Pa Dog Trainer



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.

image5Working on “leave it,”respecting the personal space of others, and impulse control.

image7Great focus Nyla, Molly and Tink!

image8This is a pack of 3 female pit bulls. Both owners and dogs are doing a fabulous job of reinforcing the girls skills by diligently practicing their their sleepydog homework.

*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!”

From sleepydog- We hope Albus feels better and is cone free soon!

 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!

“A good dog never dies, he always stays, he walks beside you on crisp autumn days when frost is on the fields and winter’s drawing near, his head within our hand in his old way. ” ~ Anonymous


This is a beautiful tribute made by Hannah’s mom/owner Elise Campbell. In the video she chronicles the first year from Hannah in the shelter to Hannah today. Hannah had a bunch of issues like resource guarding, dog on dog aggression, barrier frustration, and redirecting on her handler, among others.

The first time I met Elise and Hannah I told her that if she did the work, in a year, Hannah would be a different dog…Elise looked at me and said, “A year?!?”

Well, it’s been a year, Elise has worked really hard with Hannah, and the result is a dog and her mom/owner who are both different now. – Each has been changed, in a beautiful way, by the other.

Check out the video here:

It’s true, we each get the dog we need.  🙂

Elise is also a wonderful photographer, check out her work at :
