I have trained dogs for over 30 years now. Currently, I own two Australian Shepherd rescues - a Mother and Son duo. Her son is what is known as a "lethal white" as he is the product of a merle-to-merle breeding. He was born completely deaf, and blind in one eye - he is my avatar. They are both AKC CGC trained and certified. The deaf/blind son is trained with over 20 hand signals and touch commands. The Mother has earned her novice titles in AKC Canine Agility, and is pictured above in the banner.
