Early on in Toms career he started helping rescues rehabilitate dogs. When working with a rescue, they had a young all white and confident pittie who was gnawing away at his kennel, making his gums bleed. Tom spent time training Snow to be adopted out. Tom would work him throughout the day, found that he loved the treadmill, and was a very sweet young dog. Tom knew the kennel life wasn't for this guy so he took him home for a night. After testing out the bed and getting to know Drax, Snow never went back, and became a new member of the pack.
Snow is very calm and helps keep dogs company while adjusting to new environments. He shows them that there is nothing to worry about because he is all cool calm and collected.
While Tom was training dogs in Cleveland, one of his clients came upon a lonely wanderer found near the highway. He had no tags, microchip, or any information. Tom took on the responsibility of caring for him while searching for his owner. After a few months of no luck, and whole a lot of bonding time, Tom decided to make this pup his own and named him Drax!
Drax is a very well socialized dog, he is our main guy when introducing new dogs to the pack. He is also great with puppies and teaching them the ropes! He is paid very handsomely with his raw food.
Sasja has been with Kay since she was a puppy. Sasja has a whole lot of personality, loves her mom, loves company, and loves to run aimlessly and bark at things that are not there. Kay contacted Tom, to teach herself and Sasja, how to communicate on a higher level. It changed Kay's and Sasja's relationship completely. Kay and Tom became intrigued about each others beliefs, Tom was fascinated with Kay's knowledge about feeding a species appropriate diet, as she had been feeding Sasja since she was a pup. Kay was static that Sasja could roam off-leash, thanks to remote collar training from Tom. The two, dog loving individuals, became a team who fell in love with their passions for dogs.
Sasja supports us all by being comforting and playful! She keeps the energy positive and fun getting most dogs eager to play within minutes of meeting them.
