Jersey is my newest addition. I rescued her in 2009 when a backyard breeder was "going out of business." I convinced her to give Helping Paws Rescue all of the pups and parents. Amanda got them all spayed/neutered, healthy and in loving homes.

JerseyJersey has been a joy to train. I feel she has the most potential in terms of how far she can go in both agility and obedience trialing. At the young age of 5-months Jersey passed her Canine Good Citizen test. Within a year of training Jersey earned her Rally Novice, Advanced and Excellent titles. Her next goal is her Utility title for which she is now training.

Jersey has excelled in agility. She loves it! It took less than 8 months for Jersey to earn her Novice Standard and Jumpers titles and Open Standard and Jumpers titles. Putting Jersey at 6 titles before her 2nd birthday. She is two qualifying runs away from being called Master Agility Champion! Any day now!

Heidi was rescued along with 299 other dogs from a horrible puppy mill. I never had small dogs until this little girl stole my heart. I warned Heidi that if I adopted her she would be expected to train and behave just like my big girls. Heidi took that as a challenge and has become the most amazing little competitive dog. She quickly earned her HeidiRally Novice, Advanced and Excellent titles. Heidi's true love is agility. Jumping a staggering 8" Heidi flies over the jumps and obstacles creating fans wherever she competes. Heidi quickly earned enough titles to move her up to excellent levels.

2010 Invitational Rankings put Heidi the 9th of all of Chihuahuas in the United States.
2013 Invitational Rankings put Heidi the 6th of all Chihuahuas and earned her a spot at the competition!

Titles:
-MACH: Master Agility Champion
-CD: Companion Dog
-RE: Rally Excellent
-MXB: Master Agility Bronze

-MXF: Master Excellent Fast Agility

Kenzie was rescued just hours before being put to sleep at Athens Animal Control when she was about 9-months old. I would like to take all the credit for her good behavior but Kenzie has always been such an easy dog to train and work with.

KenzieWithin a year Kenzie had received her first title. Through AKC (American Kennel Club) obedience trials she obtained her CD (Companion Dog) title. She gone on from there to continue to compete in Rally, dabble in flyball and making top rankings in agility.

By 2006 she obtained 2 agility titles through NADAC (North America Dog Agility Council) and 1 title through AKC. Kenzie stopped competing in agility in '06 when I had to focus on the new Pawtropolis. She started back full force in 2008. Since then she has obtained 3 Rally titles and numerous AKC Agility titles, including her Master Agility Jumpers and Master Agility Standard.

So far the highest Kenzie has been ranked is the 5th dalmatian in the USA in agility summer of 2010.

2010 Invitational rankings put Kenzie as the 15th top dalmatian in the United States.

Past Pups in Competition

Amanda's "Lacey" Lee, CDX
Dalmatian April 93-February 08Lacey
Title Explanations:
-CDX: Companion Dog Excellent

Lacey was the dog that started it all. Amanda's parents bought Lacey for her when she was only 15. She started training with her immediately and started doing competitive obedience at only 16. You know the story from there: Pawtropolis was born because of Lacey.

Through AKC (American Kennel Club) obedience trials Lacey first obtained her CD (Companion Dog) title. Once you achieve that title the next step is competing in the Open level. It was here that Lacey obtained the "X" part of the title, her CDX (Companion Dog Excellent.)

Lacey never was a fan of doing obedience competitions. She was the kind of dog that would look at Amanda and say, "Okay, if you want me to." If you can imagine her saying that in the voice of Eeyore from Winnie the Pooh, then that's Lacey. Laid back, easy going, loving and fantastic! Because of her lack of enthusiasm about training she retired after obtaining her second title. She will be dearly missed.

 

 

Amanda's Treasured "Tyler" CD
Rescue Dalmatian 1995-2008Tyler
Title Explanations:
-CD: Companion Dog

In 1997 Amanda found starved and beat up Tyler. She nursed him back to health and found underneath all of his rugged exterior was a sweet boy inside. It wasn't until Tyler moved to Athens with Amanda in '98 that Amanda began to train him in preparation for trials, so he had a late start. Tyler is a goofy boy. His most famous trial story was when all during the heeling pattern (where he is suppose to walk directly by my side) he wandered around behind me a good 5-6 feet, looking and smiling at all of the spectators. When I came to a halt, he came in sat in the perfect position! What a ham!

Through AKC (American Kennel Club) obedience trials Tyler obtained his CD (Companion Dog) title.

Since Tyler was already a bit older once he achieved his CD title combined with Amanda starting Pawtropolis, Tyler never moved on to win anything more then the hearts of everyone he met.

 

Why Train?

Every year thousands of dogs are surrendered to animal controls due to destructive behavior. Most commonly owners simply don't know how to stop the unwanted behavior. The good news? Training can be both easy and fun.Training

Our trainers are very open minded. They don't adhere to strict training methods that may not work for all dogs. Our trainers encourage fun positive training and teach owners how to be leaders throughout their everyday routines. Small changes in the home can lead to big differences in the dog's behavior.

Whether you seek training with Pawtropolis or elsewhere, getting the help you need is invaluable. Please contact us with any and all of your training questions and concerns. We are always happy to help.
