Judi & Hogie

Hi !...   My name is Judi and the little man in my arms
is Hogie (aka Hogieman), my 13 year old Miniature
Schnauzer. We live in Upstate New York. Recently, I've decided to put my "passion and knowledge" of dogs into the hands of those getting their first puppy or dog.

As a devoted dog owner and dog lover, with over 35 years of practical dog experience, I've applied basic training and obedience training to all my dogs. The ending results of those training efforts... pure joy!

 Hogie obediently waits on the cart while I went up to the green to putt!  My golfing "caddie"!

Hogie and I enjoyed golfing together. He really loved it... I did too!
Friends were amazed at his obedience and how well trained he was.
His patience, love, and obedience were so inspirational to me.

And they say you can't have your cake and eat it too? We did!

We know you can also enjoy dog ownership to it's fullest!

UPDATE:    Sadly, Hogie left us peacefully in November 2009.
He was the inspiration in building this web site to help others.

Enjoy pawing your way through this site. I have fun keeping
you updated with the latest information!
