Van is my sport dog, my soul dog and my best friend. We compete in dock diving, fastCAT, Rally Obedience, agility and weight pull, For Focus Dog Training his job is as a neutral dog. He helps dogs who are afraid or a little too over excited about dogs how to be calm and collected around other dogs!
Dover is our gentle giant. He is a 120 lbs Great Pyrenees who competes in fastCAT. But his biggest passion is helping with puppies! He is my active socialization dog who teaches puppies how to appropriately react to other dogs.
Sixx is the newest addition to the Focus family. She is a Cane Corso who is my next sport and demo dog prospect. We will be doing fastCAT, Conformation, Disc, Dock Diving, Rally Obedience and weight pull
