"Super Champ"

Champ has passed final testing, so he is now known as “Super Champ”, a victorious conquering hero! He did great on his final exams and is being allowed to graduate with honors. It is difficult to imagine a replacement for Champ, as his session with his trainers nears its end. He is such a lovable dog and his trainer has grown very attached to him. (Who wouldn’t after having an awesome pup for 10 weeks). He said Champ is a wonderful dog with a sweet, affectionate personality who can also have lots of fun. Champ has made a lot of progress over these 10 weeks and his trainers are very proud of him. He hopes Champ gets all kinds of treats and attention at his new home with his forever family. He definitely deserves it.

The BEST Boy

Champ has such an endearing personality and his swap week trainer says he will never forget what a good dog he was during swap week! He gets along well with other dogs and people, and everyone can’t help but love him to pieces. It’s fun to watch him run when he plays with his hound buddies in his running squad, Lamont and Derek. His swap week trainer wishes he had a picture of him drinking out of the same bowl with Trixie because they looked so cute sharing!

Champ has mastered everything now and is ready for his final testing on all of the commands. The last thing he finished learning was to wait in the “sit” position outside his kennel at feeding times, and it’s been a rewarding success! His whole team is so proud of him. His swap week trainer hasn’t seen any signs of aggression over toys or anything else. It gladdens his heart to see the progress these dogs make in just 10 short weeks.

Some sweet words from his swap week trainer: “I love how Champ gets excited to get out at play times. Like many of our dogs, he has transformed well into a delightful companion and best friend for any human on earth, becoming more outgoing and extroverted over the session as he became more comfortable around us. We’re always glad to see each other, so of course I wish I could adopt him as my own pet. I know he will be so thankful to have a forever home. Champ is a champion in the history of this program, renowned among all greyhounds and a special blessing to us all!”

#1 Hound!

Champ the greyhound is a VERY affectionate dog! He loves being petted and is happy to give as many doggy kisses as you can handle. His trainer is glad that he has been able to spend more time with him, and looks forward to giving him lots more attention for the remainder of the session.

Champ’s trainer takes him into the training room every day and personally confirms that Champ can do his commands, and this guy knocks ‘em out of the park every time. He knows everything! Champ is a great dog and his trainer is working diligently to make sure that he will perform his commands in different locations so he can get comfortable being obedient in all sorts of environments and settings - not just in the training area. Champ is smart, and is adapting quickly to these new challenges.

Champ is so loved around the dorm and is going to do great when he gets to his forever home. He is going to have so much fun getting out and running around with his new family! He’s eager to play and have a good time with people and other dogs, and he’s always exceptionally sweet. I mean just look at that face! His trainer is confident that Champ has all the makings of a champion pet, and wishes he could adopt Champ himself!

Yep. I'm handsome and I know it.

Champ has had a great week! He knows all of his basic commands. Sit is still a work in progress. He loves his bed and at times he just wants to hang out relaxing.  His inmate trainer says Ivan’s a relaxed guy with a laid back personality.  

Ivan enjoys his training sessions and the treats don’t hurt either.  He likes to hang out with his fellow greys and doesn’t have any problems sharing his toys or bed.  His inmate trainer believes that Ivan is going to be a great companion for his new home. 


Heart Of A Champion

Champ’s inmate trainer says that when you meet Champ you’ll immediately see that he has the heart of a champion.  He’s a good lookin’ guy but he’s not stuck on himself.  He get’s lots of compliments on his black/white coat and there have been some whispering that say his markings remind them of the finest of dairy cows. 

He says it’s a joy to work with Champ because he’s always happy and excited.  He’s been extraordinarily brave in adapting to his new environment and training.  His inmate trainer says that it’s always fun to see how the dogs transform during the course of a session.  It’s a true treat to watch their personalities emerge.  Champ has had a wonderful disposition from the beginning and his inmate trainer says that he’s looking forward to helping Champ achieve command perfection!  

Stairs? No problem!

Champ has had a greyt week! He knows leave it, stay, here, heel, release, let’s go, and hurry. He is still slow to respond to kennel, wait, down, and bed; he does do them, just not on the first try. He really enjoys his bed when he wants to be on it! Champ has a fantastic personality - it’s not him being coy, he’s just a slow jam. Champ is an exceptional dog and will have no problem getting it before the session is over.

He jumped on his own this week, and he did stair training for the first time, too! He was reluctant the first time up and down, but by the third time he had no problems. He is a wonderful, relaxed dog and his trainer has not found any aggressive behavior toward anything at all.

Attention Hound

Champ has had a great week. He knows, “let’s go,” “wait,” “stay,” “bed,” and “leave it.”  Sometimes he’s a little slow responding to “hurry,” “kennel,” “release,” and “heel,” but it’s early in the game, so he’s got plenty of time.  He hasn’t learned to sit or jump yet.  

 Champ’s inmate trainer says that Champ enjoys treats but is just as motivated by attention.  He’s like a little sponge that will soak up all the attention you can give him.  

Peanut Butter and TV

Champ has had a great week! He and his trainer have bonded well, and he has proven himself to be quite the genius. Champ has such a wonderful personality; he is so relaxed and laid back and enjoys just hanging out on his bed with a Kong full of peanut butter. He walks well on a leash and has been working diligently on heel, stay, bed and wait. His trainer has found no signs of aggressive behavior towards anything whatsoever. He is motivated by food and that is sure to make training a breeze. He loves being around people and other dogs and will make an excellent companion for anyone lucky enough to snag this guy. He did notice the TV for the first time this week. It was kind of funny – he thought there were people in there, but then realized there was no reason to be afraid of all the pictures and sounds coming from the robot box. Now he likes watching the TV and isn’t scared of it!

Did someone say TREATS?!

Champ is doing great!  His inmate trainer says that he seems calm and laid back. He’s doing really well getting acclimated to his new environment. Champ seems to enjoy new people and has greyt fun with the other dogs.  

His inmate trainer says that training should go well, as Champ seems really smart AND treat motivated. He perks right up at the thought of treats and has a great appetite.
