Don't Forget To Tune In!

Tonight is another episode of America's Cutest Puppies.

Since I am the trainer of Bunker The Dog, and know him personally, I'm sort of biased towards him!

I am having a great deal of fun as I work with Bunker. Bull Terriers are quite an interesting breed, and they have a lot of capability if you give them the necessary time and effort. It is a shame so many people get dogs and then neglect them. Bunker is hardly being neglected, however. He goes everywhere with his family and has a good home and social life. He is actively being used to help raise funds for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. He is learning a ton of things in his daily lessons (such as tracking, retrieving objects on command, on and off leash obedience, and a variety of tricks). Lastly, he is getting increasingly more media attention, and has been interviewed with his owners by Bark Magazine, personal interest TV appearances, and other publicity efforts.

When you interact with your dog this much, they become quite interesting and fun. They also start acting spooky smart, as they pick up more and more how to communicate, and learn how to learn. Bunker is crossing that threshold right now, and that is really bringing out his already interesting personality.

Bunker is a joy to be around, and I think you can see that when you watch him on TV.

Stay tuned!
