  • My Thoughts On The Movie “A Dog’s Purpose”

    My thoughts on the TMZ clip from the movie "A Dog's Purpose" that shows a German Shepherd being forced in raging water for a movie scene against his will. By now the studio, producers and writers all have weighed in and found ways to justify and minimize what we saw in this disturbing video. A series of deflections to justify what happened.



Our Golden Retriever puppy was very hard to control. He was constantly chewing on everything including our hands and feet. We needed help so we hired Happy Dog Training. Ralf has been working with our dog Teddy for 6 weeks and he is now well behaved and totally manageable. Ralf is a very knowledgable in the area of canine behavior and his knowledge has resulted in excellent results I highly recommend Ralf and his staff.” – Tony C.
