Ralph's Associates


Hello my friends!  My name is Watson, aka Mr."W", Nurse Watson, and Twinkles.  My wonderful Daddy also calls me Watsy and Creeper. Boy, I wonder why I have so many names? :)  I am a 1 year old Rottweiler, and I am learning to be the best dog ever.  One day, I will know as much as my late sister Scarlett, who I adored.  I have a long way to go and big "paws" to fill - becoming my Mom's Training Assistant and be called "Dr. Watson"! :)  I enjoy mostly my socialization time in the big world out there with my very sweet Dad, who I love to pieces, my Mom, my sweet sister Violet, and our four- legged friends and students!  Life is great! 


Howdy and good day!  My name is Violet, aka Bubiline (it's a very long story, how I got my nick name :)).  I am a Bluetick- Coonhound with a tiny touch of Basset Hound.  I am a country girl and about 3 to 4 years old, and my Mom rescued me from a rural high- kill shelter.  I was first very very scared about everything, even just to be in the house.  My Mom did extensive Behavior Rehab with me, since I had a lot of behavior problems and have never been trained.  I used to be a backyard breeding dog, and that's all I ever knew.  Now I have the most beautiful and safe home. I like to stick my nose in all the flowers in the yard, and absolutely love to go out with my Mom, Dad and my brother Watsy, who I adore. I enjoy riding the car and going to parks;... and I already started working with a client, which I am best friends with! Through all this, I have always loved people and all kinds of animals, and as you can probably guess by now, my fears and phobias I had are almost melted away, and I am the happiest, funniest and prettiest girl.  I love my new life, all the training classes I get, and who knows, looks like I will make a great training assistant for my Mom!!!  I am sooo smart and extra special --- says my Mom, who I love dearly! Have a peachy day!  

Our highly skilled & wonderful Volunteers:






Hi, my name is Ziva, a 14 years old Aussie/ Border Collie Mix.  My lovely Momma adopted me, and sent me right to doggie- school with Ms. Kirsten, my best friend Strudel's Mom.  I am very beautiful, and very very smart!  I know a lot of skills, including tricks!  They are my favorites!  I started volunteering for Ms. Kirsten years ago, and still love it!  The best is, I get paid in treats!        


Hello good day my friends!  I am Bell, the most prettiest, sweetest, adorable, well- behaved and smartest girl in the world.  I am a 1 year old Cattle Dog/ Pitbull/ and A- Lot- Of- Something- Else- Mixbreed :).  I love being a model for taking pictures, training classes, going out in public, my siblings Gizmo and Kinsey, and of course my lovely Momma, who rescued me from a shelter.  And here comes the best: I got hired as a volunteer for my Mom's friend Ms. Kirsten to help training student dogs!  And have I mentioned, I have my own chauffeur!  Life is beautiful!       


Hello friends, my name is Gizmo, a 11 years old Shitzu.  I am retired now, and pursuing my hobby to help training doggies as my wonderful brother Lobo did!  He was the greatest, and I have big paws to fill; however, I am having a lot fun doing just that.  Life is good!      


Hi, my name is Kinsey, also known as "The flying Non", because of my cute ears! :)  I am 10 years old, and a German Shepherd.  I am also my Mommie's service dog, and on my free days, I help out my teacher Ms. Kirsten!         

Even though, my dear husband Rich does not appreciate that I write this :), I still want to mention him. Without him, I would have never been able to full-fill my dream, and open up my own business.  He has always been my biggest fan, and huge supporter in training canines, and learning everything about them. Rich helped me all the way through to make this possible.  Thank you honey--- I love you forever!
