It takes a miracle to train a dog.

A rather remarkable story out of Southern California, two dogs are spared a one-way trip to the shelter by nothing less than the image
of Jesus Christ appearing on their doggy door.

It's remarkable because it took Divine Intervention for these two rather normal

The only thinking solution is to educate owners. Cesar Millan is a great start.

What's needed is more charity put into free training and free education.

If any of my furry readers knows of free training classes around the country, I'll be happy to put up a notice.
