The Day I Rescued


During this video, you will hear the story of Lucca, a 12-year old military dog. She served on hundreds of missions before she lost a leg in an explosion. Not a single Marine died under her watch. At the beginning of this video, you will see her receive the highest medal for valor. 

Learn With Jenza Dog Training

Jan here - many times during the course of a conversation the question about 'training' arises. While PAWS cannot recommend anyone, I have personally used Lisa's services and can without any reservation recommend her. IF you have training questions or concerns please give her a call. She and her husband Dave will help you understand how important training is. They teach obedience beginner classes up to Advanced Agility classes and everything in between! A link to her website has been provided.
