A true gentleman
24/01/2009 - 12/04/2022
Age: 13yrs 2 months 19 days
Frank is the dog training dog. His temperament and attitude has helped many dog's to relax and not to be anxious. He is the Clint Eastwood of the dog world. He's cool, chilled and mysterious.
Having been rescued himself, he understands dog's need positive confident guidance. Frank's loves are food, parks & beach, more food & more food again.
Benny is a young papillion X who's bring joy and mischievousness to the team. Benny's had high aggression issue's in the past and has learnt that having positive guidance is the key to happiness and a higher quality of life.
Benny's loves life and what it has to offer. He is affectionate and loves to learn new things like skateboarding, tricks and nose works - searching for specific objects. Benny loves Frank and hopes one day he will be as big and handsome as Frank.
Secretly, Benny is having an affair with Frank's wife Tesla. (Don't tell Frank although Franks happy to have the time away from her)
Adopted from a K9 rescue, Jazzy has come out of her shell and taken on the position as dog manager to Frank & Benny.
When on the job, her independence & assertiveness teaches
dog's about manners & that she may be small but she still deserves respect. Jazzy loves to sleep, eating, chasing the ball & skateboarding.
Tesla brings to the training her classy modern day sassy chix looks that male dogs drool over and females want to be her. She is flirtatious with the boys and has no time for the girls. Telsa teaches
dog's about social manners, respect and although she may look sweet and innocent, rub her up the wrong way, she'll explode in a flash then return to her sweet innocent demeanour in half a flash.
Adopted from a GAP -Greyhounds for Pets (WA), she wasn't interested in racing but rather play with her siblings. Tesla found her new home sweet home with Frank, her life companion.
P.S (she's loves having secret rendezvous plays
