Bay Area German Shepherd Rescue

We just learned from our friends at DogTrekker that you can now search for and book dog friendly hotels right from their site.  

When we are traveling we often struggle to find try and find places that are dog friendly.

Don't forget about their state of the art free app for your smartphone!  It's right here

So check this out.  Great idea!



We love Roxanne, Dave and the team at DogTrekker.  Their site provides guides to dog friendly things in our area.  They cover dog friendly beaches, hikes, events and all sorts of other stuff.

Most recently they prepared a guide to the best dog apps for your mobile devices. Go check them out and enjoy!  Click here.

This month's National Geographic has an amazing in-depth look at the US military use of dogs. The story is called Hero Dogs and primarily features German, Belgian and Dutch Shepherds - the dogs we love most! It's an incredible read and you can see it here:

Our dogs are super smart and learn very quickly with the right direction.  We are often asked to recommend a dog trainer by people who adopt their new dog.  Our belief is that trainer works with you to help you train your dog. Over the coming days and weeks we will be creating a list with contacts.  We will only list trainers that our members have personally worked with and recommend.

Based in Novato, they offer an extraordinary range of training and behavior classes at very affordable prices. Many of our volunteers have undertaken their dog training classes with their personal dogs.  We are huge fans of Dawn and her entire team. See them on line here and call them on (415) 883-4621


Lisa Caper runs DogOvation covering Marin County.  Several of our volunteers have worked with her and they give great reports.  Like all the best trainers her focus is more on training the owner to train the dog.  You can read all about Lisa's philosophy on her website here and phone her at : (415) 299-1158
