2 Years On - GO BOGIE GO!





Two years ago today a 10-pound tumor that had been growing on my spleen, slowly taking over my abdominal cavity and in general being a very bad thing, burst.  Mama rushed me into emergency surgery at the amazing Penn Veterinary School Hospital in Philadelphia.  The prognosis didn’t look good.  I didn’t look good.  Mama’s checkbook didn’t look good.

But damnit, I’m an Airedale Terrier.  We don’t give up when things get tough.

Despite incredibly bad odds, mama and I charged forward and had the surgery.  She even enrolled me in a study on dogs with a certain type of cancer that they were pretty certain I had, hoping that maybe we could have a few more months together if the news was as bad as everyone was predicting and maybe help the doctors learn how to help other dogs in the future.

And then… I surprised everyone by NOT having a cancerous tumor.  And surprise of a second kind… I did have testicular cancer.  Lucky for me the vet thought something might be wrong with “the boys” so she took ’em out when she removed the tumor.  Recovery wasn’t easy, but I refused to be knocked down.

That was exactly two years ago.  Mama and I are a strong, terrier team.  Despite a few little setbacks, I AM A SURVIVOR AND TUMORS CAN KISS MY ASS

Love,
Bogart

Hi dog lover,

No matter what your dog’s problem behavior is…

Be it jumping, peeing inappropriately, aggression, pulling on the leash…or whatever…

There is ONE SOLUTION that can help STOP this problem now

The sad fact is…

Most Dog trainers miss this solution entirely.

They give you cookie cutting training programs.

They use outdated and ‘mean’ dominance techniques.

Or worse yet…

They have no qualifications and are complete phonies.

So what’s the answer to stopping your Dog’s behavior problems?

In 4 simple words…

Discovering your dog’s hidden intelligence.

Let me explain…

In my 10 years as a certified trainer…there’s ONE BIG LESSON I have learned.

More intelligent dogs are better behaved.

A More intelligent dog takes commands easier

…and understands what you need from them.

The good news is…

No matter how clever you think your dog is.

You can >>> Unlock their hidden intelligence quickly and easily.

You can >>> I’ll explain everything on this page.

Don’t waste a second longer coping with problem behaviors you don’t need to be dealing with.
