Meet the K9s
The Smith Pack
Ice - Belgian Malinois
Hi! My name is Ice, and I'm Carolyn's most favorite dog of all time. This privilege has completely gone to my head, making me the bossiest dog in the Cabot Pack! You'll often see me helping out during lessons, acting as a distraction, or demonstrating some of the new skills we're working on with your dog. I'm currently titled in AKC Obedience and the sport of IPO (Schutzhund). I have my AKC CGC, CDX and my IPO BH. I also made my big screen debut in a horror movie titled The Wretched, which was filmed this summer (2018) in Leelanau County.
Favorites: long walks with Carolyn, playing frisbee, chewing on my ball, destroying anything I can get into, being the "Fun Police," and stealing Carolyn's Cheetos or any sweets clients bring her (that I think should actually be for me)
Riot - Belgian Malinois
Hi! I'm the newest addition to the pack. I like to give hugs and climb in everyone's lap, so be aware if you're sitting in the training room- you just might have an 80# surprise in your lap! I'm in training to be Ice's replacement as mom's service dog. I'm excited to learn how to travel with her and learn my tasks to help her navigate life.
Favorites: frisbee, swimming, harassing Dewey, destruction and general mayhem
Dexter - British Labrador Retriever
I'm Dexter and my color is called Fox Red. I'm the nicest member of the Cabot Pack and am head of the Welcoming Committee! You'll get to meet me anytime socializing is involved as I'm the life of the party! I'm currently in training for bird hunting and am working towards several different titles.
Favorites: swimming, retrieving, eating sticks, chewing sticks, eating more sticks, finding birds
Anna (a.k.a. Shady) -
British Labrador Retriever
My name is Shady, and I'm one of Carolyn's favorite hunting dogs. While I may be the most frustrating dog she owns (I mean, I am kind of opinionated), I'm also her right hand dog when it comes to keeping puppies and other young dogs in line. I take my role as socializer very seriously and will appropriately discipline any youngsters that are overstepping their bounds within the pack.
Favorites: putting anything and everything in my mouth- especially Savannah's gloves or scarf, retrieving, swimming after something to retrieve, checking the pond for anything worth retrieving, did you throw something you'd like me to retrieve for you?
Dewey - Great Dane
Hey there- I'm Dewey! I'm 135 pounds of goofy, perpetually adolescent Dane. I'm starting to make more appearances in lessons as a distraction. Sometimes I'm used for socialization; however, I'm not always aware of how big I am.
Favorites: chewing on sticks, playing with my friends, running in the woods, sleeping, listening to myself talk, playing ball, harassing Ice and Riot
Mac - British Lab
Hey there- I'm Mac! I'm one of Shady's daughters. I love to give hugs, cuddle, play with anyone and try to convince anybody who will listen throw the ball for me. You'll see me helping with socialization and acting as a distraction in lessons.
Favorites: chasing the ball, playing with my friends, running in the woods, swimming, snuggling and belly rubs
