Originally a rescue/rehab center for Pit Bulls and Mastiffs, the facility also temperament tests all bully breeds, boards bullies for those individuals who have a hard time finding overnight care for their bullies and Mastiffs. The Facility is 100% BARK FREE, cage and kennel free (except for feeding and sleeping). We specialize in anger management for dogs, dog to dog aggression, dog to human aggression, dog to dog introductions, boundaries, and overall socialization for your bully.Founded by a 20 year specialist and expert in dog aggression, Pit Bulls, Mastiffs, and American Bulldogs. The subject of many shows and articles because of his unconventional, but extremely effective techniques. Obedience training is not part of what we teach here at The Bully Connection, but more of a real life maintenance program that allows for you to keep, and have control over your bully. Structure, consistency, and exercise are the principles of the program.

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog or puppy versus getting dogs for sale or puppies for sale from a dog breeder? When someone is breeding puppies, they are creating new dogs who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog or puppy and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale from a puppy breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog or adopt a puppy at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
