About Dave

My name is Dave and I have 2 dogs Rico and Monet. I got Rico, a black lab pit bull mix, when I was living in Winnipeg going to university and working at a dog daycare where my training started.

I moved to Mexico shortly after where I got Monet, a purebred Weimaraner, who was nothing but a sack of skin and bones when my friend found him. He was a super playful dog with a lot of energy once he got it back. Weimaraners can be a handful to train and he was! He loves affection and was 100% pet aggressive, he would do anything for a good pet.

We took him in and he instantly bonded with a Rico, so I knew I had to keep him. We've been together for 11 years and he currently lives with my mom who Mmmm fell in love with him after only a few days of babysitting when i had surgery and he hasn't gone home since.

I later I use to run a boarding and training facility in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. We built a ranch in the side of the mountain just north of the city over looking the whole bay. Where I would train dogs for local rescues, give them good manners before going for adoption. I used most of the shelter for rescues we either found or were given and did the same with them and used the rescues to get them adopted too.
