Who Rescues Who?

It's no secret. We've always had a heart for working with rescue dogs and helping dogs find a second chance. There is such a thing as teaching an old dog new tricks and giving them the tools to succeed in life. We've worked with countless rescue dog owners, as well as K9 Heights Owner, Eric Allport having two rescue dogs himself. No matter how they come into your life, the seem to weasel their way into your hearts and you are never the same.

Dogs have a special place in our life, and we always want what's best for them. It's also important that you have a plan in place for their care in case something were to happen to you. We'd like to share Stan's story, and a kind family who offered to step in and lend his owner a hand.

Meet Stan

Stan came to K9 Heights thanks to some K9 Heights Alumni and their family. Stan's owner was taken to hospice and sadly passed away from cancer. Luckily, Stan's owner was friends with a K9 Heights Alumni and they agreed to bring Stan to us to get him training in order to help find him a new home.

Stan is a 7 year old, Male, Pitbull who has been well loved, but little to no structure in his life and most likely never walked on a leash or in public. He's a happy and friendly guy, but he needs to learn basic obedience so he will have many options for finding a wonderful new family to love him. 

This guy is eager to learn and is such a love bug. Stan's guardian angel who brought him to us, will be making sure that his vet bills of neutering will be covered before finding a new home. Stan always has a smile on his face, and wags his tail any time he sees one of our trainers coming his way.

Stan is currently doing our Total Transformation, 4 week board and train program with K9 Heights, where he will be working on basic obedience in the home environment, walking on a loose leash, and learning his manners in public. He will be trained utilizing balanced training methods, such as a prong collar and e-collar. When he has graduated from our board and train program he will be looking for a forever home that loves him as much as his dad did. If you you have a Stan sized hole in your life, or know someone who would be a good candidate for a forever home for Stan, please email FindStanAHome@gmail.com

"It came to me that every time I train a dog they take a piece of my heart with them. And every new dog who comes into my life, gifts me a with a piece of their heart. If I live long enough, all of the components of my heart will be dog, and I will be as generous and loving as they are.” -Author Unknown
