We decided when we opened ourselves to others that we would provide a chance for Champion hounds, leading them to become WorkingPartners, and place them with meriting and working organizations or individuals who have proven Worthy. There is no one path open to anyone qualifying for a prepared pooch, from a veteran to a K9 to a field partner or guardian, But all find a steady partner to enable them joy, despite special difficulties of their unique life. Realistically we may not save them all on our own, as we are only a few individuals right now but because of our teamwork, our ideology and belief in Love, we see a greater impact every day.

Coon hunting is a favorite sport for man and dog to work at night, a rare opportunity for most. These Elite Partners find a challenge that starts from youth, breeding and eventually gameness. Follow a few of our favorites as we explain the concept of starting a dog before taking it on the first Hunt.
CoonDog Scent Work - Live Trap
In order to fulfill their instincts as a CoonDog we give them the ultimate test, a Live Caught Raccoon. Don't worry after letting the dogs smell and sing for us, these guys are released back into the woods.

CoonDogs are taken afield and worked in the trees using a variety of pelts, scents and distractions to prove your dog is on the right track!

Herding is an essential tool for any shepherd, cowboy or pig farmer, a rare sight for most. These Elite Partners pursue a challenge that starts with obediance, breeding and eventually eye. Here we teach a foundation for theirs - and our own success.
