Who is Grace?

Hi there. I’m Grace. I am a very hard working, compassionate and strong willed woman who loves a challenge and never backs down from a hard days work, which is a good mix for working with dogs that are having trouble getting along in the world with us humans! The greatest reward I get in life is when someone tells me I saved the life of their dog so they didn’t have to give it up! I love nothing more then showing people how to be a leader in their own world and all aspects of life! I am a leader, and walk my own path in life and I’ll go where ever it takes me!

Kindness, patience and routine produce happy dogs that will never turn on a human!!

This is my dog Daddy.  He came to me about a year ago from a gentleman who had no idea on how to raise a gladiator.  Daddy came from a home where he ruled the roost and did so quite proudly. Read more…

Grace’s Rants & Recommendations

I am passionate about making life better for every dog I encounter. I am forever gathering information for my own use in the day-to-day running of a house full of dogs, so I blog a lot of what I find. I also blog when I need to rant about something that needs to be ranted about. I hope you enjoy my blog. If what you are looking for isn’t on the blog, please contact me at and I will see what I can do.
