Our Philosophy

He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader.

He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion.

Throughout history different cultures have esteemed animals of the canine species. The Egyptians believed it was the swift Pharaoh Hound Anubis that served as a guide to the other world. The Greek Philosopher Socrates believed that a person’s feelings and treatment of a dog was a window into the virtue of that person. Some North American Indians believe that a dog dug up the ground and pulled the first man from the womb of Mother Earth, hence the beginning of the population of our planet. At the Dog's Den Training School we believe that dogs, like us, are animals and are therefore deserving of mutual respect. We recognize that only through respect can one truly teach a dog to live harmoniously in our shared society.
