A El Cajon, CA 92021 rescue helping to find loving homes for dogs, cats.
This rescue hasn't posted any pets that match these criteria.
All area's driving distance to San Diego. If the owner is able to come and visit the dog then we are happy to adopt it to you. We do not transport pets, or put them on airplanes.
I am an Animal Behavioral Specialist and Dog Trainer and rescue the badly behaved unadoptable dogs. I am a Preschool International Montessori Teacher ( took my exams in London, University), and Elementary International Montessori Teacher ( Washington DC). For the past 20 years I have studied animals and dogs and how they work together. I am originally From Ottawa, Canada and completed my animal studies in Ottawa, bringing a dog to class in each school that I worked. I have created an elementary school in Ottawa Canada, Elementary program in East L.A, plus worked extensively in each grade of Del Mar Pines in Del Mar, San Diego). I became a home school mom when my children were born, but never gave up working with the animals. I am somebody who simply wants to do my bit to help the thousands of abused or abandoned animals, so I have extended my training and knowledge from the typical household pet to the shelters. Together with my children and husband, we rescue one animal at a time. We take dogs who need education, and puppies who need hand feeding.
I have been a dog trainer for over 20 years.
4 years ago my beloved 18 year old golden/ husky died and with her, a piece of me left. I told her before she died that I would take my talents and knowledge to help dogs who don't have a hope, and humans who don't have the knowledge to help these dogs.
I now help rescue groups and shelters understand why each dog does what it does, and how they can help. I work closely with the Chula Vista Shelter taking the animals who need to come to school.
I am the only person in San Diego that the Chula Vista shelter will allow to take the bigger, hard to handle dogs who will be destroyed due to out of control behavior. I work with aggressive dogs, submissive dogs, and dogs of all shapes and sizes with all different reasons for their behavior.
These dogs come back to my home, my children, my farm animals, and my big and small dogs. They enter boot camp ( see "training" on my website www.shelterdogstodreamdogs.com ) and are not posted until they have passed the area's of respect , manners and basic obedience. Each dog learns to get along with each other, learns to be calm and quiet inside, good on the leash, and crate trained at night. These dogs help me when training my clients and many become therapy dogs simply because they have worked the Therapy dog test so many times in training clients that they pass it easily. I take each dog into public and expect the best from them.
I train each new owner to continue the work that I have started.
Why do I do this? This is my way to give back to society, and at the same time saving lives!
My training facility is in Blossom Valley, El Cajon, east on the 8 freeway.
When we have decided that you are the perfect home I will give you directions to my facility.
