In the Shadows
Come out from the shadows, and let yourself go.
With each step you take, your conviction will grow.
Life can become a Walk in the Park,
Alongside a loving, faithful & protective companion.
Life can get messy, filled with unexpected ups and downs;
But stick together, to keep your feet firmly on the ground.
With consistent, effective and compassionate training, your dog will be
a well-behaved family member and good canine citizen.
Our dogs are out of control and need our help. Once we have accepted that there is a problem, then can we reach out and ask for assistance to make a difference in our dog’s lives.

Happy Halloween to everyone far & near. We will be out celebrating in the Rose Garden in North Asheville. Come by to get a treat for your special canine companion! We hope to see you out there!
Dogs have given us their absolute all.
We are the center of their universe.
We are the focus of their love and faith and trust.
They serve us in return for scraps.
It is without a doubt the best deal (hu)man had ever made.

Dogs have long been referred to as “man’s” best friend. However, it is much more appropriate to refer to them as “human’s” best friend, to include all the women and children who have close, personal relationships with their dogs. Our companionship with dogs is a direct product of domestication. A prominent British anthrozoologist named John Bradshaw explains that dog domestication marked the technological innovation that provided the blueprint for the domestication of other animals, like the pigs, sheep, cattle and goats (Kawczynska 2011). Thus, the domestication of dogs is the model upon which all other domestications are based.
Welcome to Lucky Dog Training LLC‘s Dog Blog. The goal of this blog is multifaceted. First, we will share latest and greatest information about dogs, including (but not limited to) training, behavior, nutrition, health, etc. Publications pertaining to our faithful companions are popular topics, both in mainstream and scientific literature. Our objective is to sift through this information, verify the validity of the sources, and provide summaries that would be of interest to dog lovers everywhere. Although scientific literature can be dense, difficult to read and confusing, we will cut through all the scientific jargon to make the information easy to understand.
