Our Experience Training A Famous Rescued Fighting Dog:
In March of 2013, I traveled to the West Coast for the better part of a month to further my education as a canine professional. During my trip I had the honor of apprenticing with some very talented trainers, and the pleasure of working with some very special dogs. I’d like to share one particular experience with you!
Meet Lucas, one of the dogs rescued from Michael Vick’s fighting ring back in 2007. He now lives at the Best Friends Animal Sanctuary in Kanab, UT. I had the privilege of working with him for a couple hours one morning...

...BEHAVIOR MODIFICATION SUCCESS STORIES!
Proudly presenting: Winston, the affable American Bully, and Tobias, the feisty Frenchie. These two are the doggy backbone of our business, and help us successfully rehabilitate some of the most aggressive dogs in the region. Big, small, fearful, confident, or timid; these two pups handle them all with grace and skill, turning the most troubled canines into safer, balanced, model citizens.
AGGRESSIVE GERMAN SHEPHERD:
We know that leashes can break/be chewed through by a panicked or punky dog. Or that owners can drop or lose them unexpectedly if their dog lunges suddenly or reacts aggressively to another dog or some other environmental (which the two Great Dane pups in the video below did this on the regular prior to coming in). So, instead of crossing our fingers and hoping that the unexpected and “life” doesn’t happen (which it always does), we simply train for it instead and don’t rely on physical force and restraint. We rely instead on teaching the dogs impulse control, accountability, and that there are consequences. This keeps the public and the dogs safe, and maintains an awesome quality of life for our owners. Our training doesn’t eliminate risk, but sure as heck mitigates it significantly.
This client had struggled for many years with these two 140lb #greatdanes. While of sweet dispositions, these two beasties were completely out of control. She could not physically control one, and certainly not two at the same time. Not on leash, and definitely not off-leash. Here, we are proofing the dogs’ heel in my neighborhood to empower the client and show her that physical strength and muscle will never work alone to manage a powerful dog. Advanced obedience training is absolutely the magic missing link that changed not only the pups’ states of mind, but also upped the handler’s relevancy in a way she never thought possible. Seeing someone cry from happiness because their dogs (who were notorious for bolting) recall on a dime when called, and calmly walk at their side regardless of the world happening around them? Worth 10x more to us than what they spent on our BOARD AND TRAIN .
Here at The Loyal Hound, we will figuratively hold your hand and guide you from the day you call us for help, to the day you no longer need us, however long that may take ❤️ :

100% OFF-LEASH OBEDIENCE
My American Bully Winston enjoying some off-leash time on the trails with us! Without the control that low-level remote collar training can give owners, my intact, high drive working dog could not responsibly roam like this.
Camping Adventures in North Boulder with Raymond! Just three months prior, being off-leash safely with this rescue lab would not have been possible. Our two-week Board and Train helped Raymond learn that he didn't need to bite strangers or attack other dogs when he was uncertain, and to look to his owners for advocacy and guidance.
Winston and Tobias doing some duration work in Place command. If you have a dog who rushes the door or attacks guests, this non-negotiable command with an implied "stay" can be a great way to provide inclusion, and safety for your guests.
Winston helped a ton in the rehabilitation of these two Rottweilers! In just two weeks' time, the male, Jackson was no longer blowing off his owner's commands off- leash to go attack strange dogs, and Lexi's on-leash reactivity was eliminated entirely. They now enjoy calm walks in highly populated places, and get way more exercise since they can safely hike off leash with minimal management from their owners.
We have zero problem with dogs snuggling on the couch provided they have no behavioral issues and there are clear boundaries, rules, and a healthy owner/dog dynamic in the household. My pups Winston and Tobias are always happy to showcase their exemplary manners.
Joey the GSD is now a SAFE member of the family, and no longer barks threateningly and tries to bite guests coming into the house. His owners were very tired of feeling like prisoners in their own home! Sam and Karl, ages 7 and 11, love Joey, but is behavior was scaring them! The whole family feels much safer knowing that Joey is under control and knows how to conduct himself in the presence of new people. We trained this dog to defer to the owners and hold a down or place command when people come in.
