Choosing the right dog food

We feed and recommend Victor Hi-Pro Plus. Designed for all stages of life of large breeds, the calcium to phosphorus ratio is correct for proper growth of puppies, is great for working dogs, and five of the first six ingredients are meat based. While it does cost more than most bulk foods, cost is reasonable for a super premium dog food, and it is available in both 40# & 50# bags. Victor Nutra Pro, Diamond Naturals Chicken & Rice, and Large Breed Puppy are also acceptable. AAFCO information*

Raising a Working Bandog


Getting Started Right

The video series "Obedience Without Conflict" and  "The Game" by Ivan Balabanov is an excellent video series that we highly  recommend to our clients, as it will help owners become more productive  and responsible handlers. Of course, the level of this benefit will  depend upon the owner's commitment.

I have seen many videos on obedience training, and it is my opinion  that this is by far the best I have come across, as it takes a research  based, scientifically tested and proven approach to animal psychology,  and incorporates techniques that allow promote clear communication with  our canines in a completely practical and effective manner. Ivan  Balabanov has proven his techniques in national and international  competition as a top  competitor, and even obtained world championship titles in Schutzhund.  This video series is the only obedience video that I endorse without any  reservations. This video series also helps lay a basic foundation of  communicating with a canine that can later be  beneficial for PP work or sport work.
