My story

THIS DOG is on Long Island, NY Hi, I’m Comet.

This little love bug is Comet. Comet loves his people! He is just a wiggle butt, happy boy! Comet was adopted as a puppy during covid and like many covid dogs – did not get properly socialized or trained. At 7 months old, he was returned because they did not have the time or knowledge to train him. He has been waiting for over 1 year in a boarding/kennel situation to find a place to call home. He has received professional training and is exceptional with those people that he loves and respects. Het is a loving, intelligent boy that knows right from wrong. Training a dog is not a three week boot camp - training is reinforcing those rules every single day of a dogs life. Comet needs someone who is a confident individual that will continue to train him everyday. He is eager to please and will do anything for a treat!

He likes other dogs his size – no little dogs, please and would reccommend a slow intro because he gets overexcited and plays rough – that typically boxer style, batting with his paws but listens so well to verbal corrections and re-direction. Maybe an older, and wiser dog who can handle his rough and teach him how to play nicely.

If you live on Long Island and would like to meet this boy - please fill out our online application at We would like to keep him on Long Island because our trainers are here. Thank you.
