Dexter Creech

dog training with Dexter

Look at how proud he is! We love you, Dex!


Mr. Dexter is a rescue that has rescued his new owners’ hearts! He is a super happy and confident puppy who just completed his one on one dog training with Professional Dog Trainer, Alfredo Ayala. He learned all his basic obedience commands and was a joy to work with.  He was very proud, as you can see from his graduation photo, to have completed his good doggy training!  Boy, will we miss that guy!
