Our mission is to provide no cost, professional force free training and behavior services and education, to owners of the companion guardian breeds that don't have the funds to hire breed qualified trainers. This is so the dogs aren't in danger of losing their homes due to behavior.
We are an all volunteer organization, with a rigid policy of no force, no fear, no pain, and no harm training methods. If you own a Great Pyrenees, Maremma Sheep Dog, Akbash Dog, or Kuvasz with unwanted behavior, but can't afford a trainer, then you've come to the right place.We can help you with your companion guardian breed. We are working to obtain our 501(c)(3) status, but as of now, we do not have it, so if you donate, it will not be tax deductible yet. With shelters and rescues around the country overwhelmed with dogs, we want to do our part. To offer no cost professional force free training and behavior services for those that don't have the means to pay a professional trainer. We plan to have a fund to help cover the costs if we are too full and need to refer you to a paid professional.
Similar to a rescue, we survive on donations too. When you donate, we keep it in a fund for when we need to refer someone to another approved force free trainer, the fund will pay for it. Your generous donation will fund our mission. We are working to obtain our 501(c)(3) status, but as of now, we do not have it, so if you donate, it will not be tax deductible yet.
We lost Koda Bear on Tuesday, January 5th, 2023. His loss was unexpected and devastating for all of us who grew to love this little guy. He was treated very poorly by a professional, and ultimately, couldn't survive it. God sent many angels to watch over him while he prepared a special place where he will never feel pain again. Koda Bear will be ready in his special place when God calls for his two Guardian Angels, Arlinda and Brad, to reunite them, and every animal they saved, for an eternity filled with love and joy. Special thanks to Great Pyrenees Rescue Montana, who moves mountains to keep these dogs safe.
We will ensure Koda's memory for you.
How do we stop this kind of behavior with a dog this size? We stop the intention, before the action, without saying a word.
Just fold your arms and turn your head BEFORE he jumps on you. If or when he sits, then reward the sit. He will quickly learn to sit instead of jump. That is an example of force free training
This is Koda. He's been blamed for almost everything. Don't blame your dog for unwanted behavior that you may have taught him.
There is really nothing else to add, the video speaks for its self. Nice work Abby.

Since we support people with low income or in temporary financial despair, we created an Amazon Wish List of common items that can help keep dogs in their homes. We will give items out as we see the needs. We also have a few things there we need too. Thank you.
