Your Dog Guru-Coming to Montana for Seminar!!!

We are excited!!~~Jimi Livshitz/Your Dog Guru, is coming to Montana to do a seminar on dog training. Please check him out on his website and email us at for more information. We will post on here and our Facebook page when we have dates available and cost of the seminar. Here is a bit about Jimi from his website!! Jimi Livshitz has been involved in training dogs for over 27 years starting in Israel and then in the US for the past 13 years. His first Dog was a mid size abandoned and abused shepherd mix male named Miki. Miki eventually became a Service Dog for a local disabled person assisting with epileptic seizure detection. Jimi has learned with some of the best, including from direct descendants of Dr. Rudolphina Menzel who was a cynologist best known for her work in the field of animal behavior in Austria. Jimi furthered his experience by working with all different breeds and training for a variety of purposes. By the time Jimi was 15 he was training dogs that were at such a high level of skil and obedience that they were selected as detection, cadaver, guide, and seizure alert dogs. He continued apprenticing under many of the best trainers at the time. Jimi spent many years training and competing with his GSD Nora in protection and obedience up to a SCH III competitor. He traveled throughout Europe to continue his education in Germany and Holland later consulting with Police operations with KNPV. During time serving in IDF Jimi trained and successfully deployed many K9 Teams for tactical real life situations. During the time of service he was influential and essential part in Oketz. Jimi has resided in Arizona for the past 13 years and calls Phoenix his new home. He has been responsible for training some of the best, most talented and friendliest dogs you’ll run into around the Valley. His dream is to help get the State of Arizona to be pound-free while placing dogs as service animals for disabled and in-need individuals. Take a look at what some of Jimi’s clients have to say about him on his Testimonials page. » read more

However Skylar has not been introduced to other dogs, she needs work in that area.. Please fill out our online application for Skylar. Better pics later. » read more


Lando is another young 1 yr old boy from California. He needs lots of exercise and must continue with his obedience training. He is a big boy and needs an experienced GSD adopter. No young kids or cats for this boy. Lando ha not been in a house before unfortunately, I am working on him in that regard, but he is fearful in the house.

Baron is a 5 yr old GSD, he is gorgoeus. Baron lived most of his life outside in California, so was not socialized very well. He is around 5 yrs old and a big boy. He loves rubs and pets through the kennel, but he is overly protective of his food and toys. He needs someone with GSD experience that can teach him about a good life. He walks well on lead and we will introduce him to the house gradually. He is in isolation right how due to having a bout of pneumonia, so he is on medication for that. No kids for this boy. » read more


~~This is one of our new acquisitions!!! I named her Maggie, it was the name she sorta responded to, but it just seemed to fit her too, she is the sweetest girl!!! Maggie is just under a year old! She is a talker, she seems to be trying hard to tell me how tough she had it!!! ..She is eating well, she has a terrible shedding coat on her right now, I am sure from poor food. She also needs to gain some weight. When I stop petting her she snuggles up to my hand to continue, her rib cage still hurts when I pet her there, and she gently lets me know by very gently mouthing my hand when it touches her, she was assumed hit by a car, waiting on answer to x-rays from CA...I brushed her and she seemed to love it. We went for a walk on lead, she walks very well. She tried playing in the living room with toy, wanting to toss it around, but not sure if she should..I can't say enough good about this girl. It is evident that she already had a litter of pups at under a year old, how sad for her!!! We are looking for someone with alot of patience to socialize this young girl. She will make someone an awesome partner... » read more

Heidi is here and what a great dog she is, probably around 3-4 yrs old, she loves to play ball, she will tease you with it and not always bring it back, she is super smart, she can open gate latches, so you had better lock them or dog proof them! She should do okay with a male dog, but definitely no females. She is not fond of little dogs either. Heidi weighs in at around 85 pounds, so she is a big girl. She is also very strong and will need continued obefdience training. » read more


~~Ruby is here...she is a gorgeous sleek jet black female German Shepherd. Stunning. At 2 years of age, she is a fun-loving, exuberant girl who loves to walk, run and play. She also just loves ear rubs, being brushed and just generally getting any attention you want to shower on her. Ruby greets everyone with a big smile and a wagging tail. Ruby would love to live with a somewhat active family and should do great with older children in the home. She loves to relax in front of the wood stove after her dinner. Wouldn't we all? Ruby has excellent house manners and would be a wonderful addition to your family! » read more


AVAILABLE AGAIN FOR ADOPTION....Unfortunately Kina is available again, her owner could not keep her contained and on leash as instructed...She definitely needs a fenced yard...she is still on her Heartworm treatment and needs to be kept on leash for the next 2 months to control the passing of her Heartworms. Kina is such a happy girl prancing around like she owns the place, she is great in the house, lets you know by whining when she needs to go out, she has a terrific nose on her and will follow it if allowed free. She does have high prey drive for deer, so needs work on that area, AFTER her treatment is over...Kina adores little children...if anyone is still interested in her or would like more info, please email me. Thanks, Steph ~~Kina is here~Kina may look a little rough around the edges, but she has a heart of gold. She came to us with severe flea allergies, and she is looking so much better after some TLC and flea prevention! She passed her evaluation with flying colors and is truly a sweet, docile girl. Unfortunately she has tested positive for heartworm. We will need to get Kina treated before she is adopted, or find a nice quiet home, where she can go through the treatment and not have much exercise..till she passes the heartworms. Maybe 2-3 yrs old? Kina seems to get along with all dogs, and loves to be with her human. » read more

Jack is coming into rescue, his owners moved into an apartment in the big city, and can no longer giver jack the stimulation he needs. He absolutely loves humans and especially if they will play with him or give him a job to do. He is absolutely the smartest dog that I have ever owned and has a ridiculous innate ability to fulfill commands that the handler will give. Fetch, tug, agility and herding type exercises are amongst his favorite activities. He is very calm and docile inside our apartment. Outside and playtime he is consistently willing to give 125% effort. When it is playtime he is very mission and job driven. The dog will literally keep playing as long as the handler wants, which puts the responsibility on the handler to know the dog\'s limitations. I have an extremely great dog that I love, who gives me 125% all the time, and is extremely obedient/ ready to please, We had a behaviorist assess him and she ruled out any anxiety or dog aggression. It was her opinion that Jack was a true working dog. A working dog by both breed type and true personality. I say that because we also have an English Mastiff who is also a working dog, just with a different definition of work! She went on to opine that Jack would excel at certain working dog sports. Mainly she mentioned three things: 1. Schutzhund 2. Herding 3. Agility She recommended that I write up a letter to demonstrate all the useful commands and talents that he knows. She was very impressed with the level of intelligence and training that Jack displayed, especially when given a job to do.  Prior to moving out here, I invested an enormous amount of time training Jack to a high level. He is at a place where I think with a good handler he would be one of (if not the) best dog for Schutzhund, agility , or herding. I especially agree with this because Jack at 5 years old is extremely fast, light, and agile.  Jack gets excited around other dogs on initial interaction, but not uncontrollably so. After doing the initial bottom sniffing meet-n-greet he will no longer engage or interact with the dog. Rather he is more concerned with finding a job to do. Videos of his agility work will be provided upon request. » read more
