    Why Are Small Businesses So Important?

    National Small Business Week, April 30 - May 6, 2017

    As a small business we are so appreciative of nationally recognized movements such as National Small Business Week. It is in part because of Small Businesses that America thrives, but it is because of your support that we even exist. We'd like to take a moment to thank you!

    RECIPE: Cute Carrot Dog Treats

    RECIPE: Cute Carrot Dog Treats

    These treats will have your dogs hopping for joy! With Easter coming up we though we'd whip up some bunny inspired healthy, organic dog treats for the rebel pack. These treats only require four ingredients so they are super easy to make and literally take no time at all.

    Ingredients: (Makes approximately 36, 1" cookies)

    • 1/2 c. flour (we used gluten free but you can use most any type of flour you like)
    • 1/2 c. shredded organic carrots
    • 1/2 c. unsweetened organic applesauce
    • 1/2 c. organic ground oats (we used gluten free but you can use regular oats too)


    Mix all ingredients together to form dough (it will be sticky).

    Roll out dough on a very well floured board and cut out shapes using cookie cutters. We used a small bunny shaped cookie cutter. But you can also roll them into small bite size balls if you don't have cookie cutters.

    Line baking sheet with parchment paper and bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.

    Cool completely on a wire rack.

    Hoppy treating!



    Name: Zena

    Breed: Pure-bred German Shepherd from a reputable breeder

    Gender: Female, spayed

    Age: 8 months/ birthday August 23, 2016

    Zena's Story: Zena's story is a sad one. This gorgeous girl was carefully selected from a breeder as a puppy and brought home. At four months old she was dropped off for board and train at Cool Dog Training in Temecula where she has been excelling at her house training and everyday cues. Her owner tragically passed away from a completely unexpected heart-attack while she was in broad and train leaving her without a forever human. She is currently safe and sound at Cool Dog Training, but now that she is trained and ready, she needs a forever home.

    Health and Temperament: Zena is healthy and up to date on all shots and vaccinations. She is house trained and knows ten basic cues very well. She is extremely affectionate with a big heart and soul, and even bigger beautiful brown eyes. Her breeder and owner were both men so she does well with and loves men. According to her trainer, she has a keen protective instinct as she was bred for personal protection, so she does bark at strangers. 

    Sound like a perfect fit? Contact Lynne at info@cooldogtraining.com.

    Zena is currently continuing her training at Cool Dog Training facility in Temecula, California and is available for immediate adoption. There will be an adoption fee to ensure a good home. If adopted in Southern California her awesome trainer will work with her new family to ensure a successful transition. Also available for a out of town/ state adoption but must come to meet her first.

     Name: Logan

    Logan's Story:  Handsome Logan is the unfortunate victim of divorce. He was raised since puppyhood by a couple, who after getting divorced could no longer care for him. He was left with an elderly couple who cared for him, but not much else. He was essentially an outdoor dog being overfed, with no real exercise, interaction or fun. Lucky for him, Cool Dog Training offered to take him in and help re-home him. He is currently in foster care with the awesome trainer at Cool Dog Training, who has brushed up his obedience skills and made sure to shower him with love and exercise to get him back down to his target weight.

    Breed: Doberman Pinscher

    Health and Stats: Logan is a 5 year old pure bred Doberman Pinscher male. He just celebrated his birthday on October 11 (DOB 10/11/11). He is neutered, up to date on shots, and other than being a little overweight he is in great health. He currently weighs about 103 pounds but should be more in the 90 to 95 pound range.

    Temperament: Logan is a straight love bug! This boy loves his people and loves to be loved! He has the sweetest temperament and is content to just chill. He does well with other dogs and people of all kinds. He loves kids and would make an excellent family dog! This dog is pure love.

    Training & Daily Life: He is house trained and knows his cues, including: sit, down, wait/stay, place, come, and off. He is crate trained. He gets a B+ for leash walking. He would rather be with his human, so he stays in pretty close proximity. He does well in the car and house and would easily incorporate into a new home as he is very easy going. Unlike many rescue dogs who require a lot of work, Logan is ready to go. He really is a great dog!

    Logan is available for adoption through Cool Dog Training in Southern California. There is a possibility for long distance adoption but the family or individual will need to come meet him with any of their pets. If you are interested in adopting Logan or have nay questions, please email Lynne directly at info@cooldogtraining.com.
