"Idgie": 8-23-2020 - Idgie is a Golden Retriever that joined our eclectic pack from Colorado! She is fun-loving & the cuddliest of creatures. She has exceedingly high food drive & she loves all things involving her humans. She is pure joy to work with & has been such an excellent addition to our team. Whether it's on the set, on the obedience field, or on the trail, Idgie is amazingly adaptable & ready for whatever is thrown her way!

"Dude": 5-23-2016 - He is a Berger Picard and we are so so excited to have him! Dude's (#DudeBerger on social media) still a young pup learning the ways of the world but he's already got us wrapped around his not-so-little paws. He loves to cuddle, hike, and explore new places. Look for him in the AKC Obedience and Rally rings soon!

"Scully": 10-08-2014 - She is our Labrador and we are beyond thrilled to have her! Scully (#ScullyPup on social media) made her Rally & Obedience debut late April of 2015 and has already completed her Canine Good Citizenship, Rally Novice, Rally Advanced, Rally Excellent, Beginner Novice, Coursing Ability, and Companion Dog titles! She is such a fun pup to trial, and judges always compliment her happy working attitude.

"Hallu": 4-20-2022 - Hallu is a High Content Wolfdog that is actually the half-brother to Wild, our boy that we lost way too soon. Hallu is the sweetest soul who is growing up to be the most handsome boy. While very different from his half-brother in many ways, Hallu has taken to posing for photographs beautifully just like his predecessor. We are so grateful to have Hallu in our lives & look forward to seeing him mature into the being he is meant to be. You can see more of Hallu on social media by searching #HalluHikes!

"Lemon": 7-18-2005 - 5-2/2020 -  Lemon was my little foot warmer. She (#lemonthechihuahua on social media) was the top dog here at DarkWood. She took the role of "mentor" when teaching puppies to respect little dogs. She loved any type of treat and her favourite activity was sun bathing. Lemon has been in a music video for PBS and a Canine Extra in a movie!

Here at DarkWood I own and train a few extraordinary dogs. This page is just to show off some of their accomplishments as well as tell you a bit about them.

"Basco": 5/30/2007 - 1/17/2015 
By the time he was 9 months old he already had both his CGC and his CD! He was an amazing dog and I'm heartbroken that he was only with me for such a short time. He had 1 leg towards his P-CDX at the time of his passing and while we never got to finish that title, or go on to get others, I treasure every moment we spent together, in the ring and out. Basco loved the challenge of learning new behaviors for roles and loved the attention, too!

"Wild": 4-13-2017 - 8-23-2021 - Wild was a high content Wolfdog that we were honored to have been entrusted with. He came from superb, purposefully bred, lines. He was super intelligent, exceedingly confident, and such a handsome fellow. He picked up on new commands quickly and we got to use him in demonstrations and media work as he grew! Unfortunately we lost Wild very suddenly at just 4.5 years of age. His impact on our lives, & the lives around us, was extremely large.
