Major CGC & Raven CGC
Major is a 3-year old Labrador that was rescued from an abusive gun dog trainer. When we got Major he was underweight and afraid of life. Major was a team effort of many people and after giving him time to learn that he was okay, Major blossomed. Major is part of the Wisneski family and watches over 9-year old Stella. Rescue is very important to the Wisneski family so when Major became available we knew he would be a great match.
Many months went by and it was apparent due to Major's hard life that he was not going to be a night alerter or feel confident in the car; he simply slept. Major is an excellent public and daytime alerter. This is where Raven came in. Raven has some public barking issues and is a very high energy dog making her unseemly for public access work and a hard dog to place. Raven, however, is an excellent nighttime alerter and great in the car. So Raven is now a permanent member of the Wisneski household, also known as "Team Black Dog." Please follow their journey on Facebook at "A Guardian Angel for Stella."
Johanna did a lot of work with Porcha and her real-time diabetic training. All along Johanna has volunteered her time helping with these dogs and has never had her own. We watched the bond between Porcha and Johanna grow over time. When we came to a very hard realization that Porcha had some fear issues that would prevent us from placing her with a family, we decided that Porcha needed to be with Johanna. We are so happy Johanna has her very own partner and still continues to help with our new dogs in training!
Rosie and Brianna completed team training July 14, 2012. Brianna and Rosie live in Loudonville, Ohio. Rosie has gotten off to a great start alerting at night, from a distance, and through all types of distractions. Rosie is a Started Diabetic Alert Dog and was placed at 15 months of age. We look forward to watching this team's relationship grow.
Brutis CD RN CGC
Is a yellow Labrador Retriever born August 20, 2010. Brutis was bred to be a competitive field trial dog but it was determined that he was better suited to being a Diabetic Alert Dog. Brutis is now Quinn's forever partner in Coto de Caza, California as of May 2012!! We did a team check in October and they are becoming a great team! Brutis goes to school daily with Quinn, age 10, and she is an excellent handler of Brutis.
Hero is a black male Labrador born December 28, 2010 at Neverest Labadors in Fox Lake, WI. Hero is now in service with his handler, Nancy Evans in Greenville, South Carolina. Hero was raised and trained by Stefanie Loraas. Hero and Nancy are a wonderful team and we look forward to working with them and keeping them on track as they grow as a team. We have checked in with Hero and Nancy and they are taking obedience classes to continue their team building and Hero is alerting well for Nancy and a perfect gentlemen in public.
Oakly RN RA CGC
Oakly is an Australian Shepherd from Medallion Aussies in Southern California. Jaye and Oakly became a team June 17, 2011. Jaye lives alone so Oakly is a very welcome guardian angel for Jaye. Oakly came back to us for some more advanced training and has since returned home with Jaye.
Kim and Destiny officially became a team December 11, 2010. This team resides in the Salt Lake City area of Utah. Destiny has grown up quite a bit since her placement and is doing an amazing job. Destiny is Epie's half sister also from Medallion Aussies in Perris, CA. Kim and Destiny are now a great team and growing together every day. Destiny was donated by her breeder and then was donated to Kim in appreciation of her volunteer real-time work with Epie.
Jill and Epie met for the first time on November 4, 2010. They live in Shell Beach, CA. Epie went right to work for Jill the day they met and we are confident they will grow to be a very solid team. Epie is a 2-year old Australian Shepherd from Medallion Aussies in Perris, CA.
