The bond I have with dogs has shaped and defined who I am today. I want people to understand the similarities between human and dog behavior. Respect is ultimately what balances a good relationship. I try to teach people this through my methods. My relationship with my dog, Junior, isn’t one of dog and human -- it is a true friendship. He is my "right hand dog." He’s calm, confident and respectful, which is everything most people don’t believe a pit bull can be.

The Dodo is bringing the animal-loving community together via the Internet, and that is something I will always fully support.
