HyJinx

HyJinx
When is boisterous, rambunctious, and carrying-on a good thing in dog training? When your  name is HyJinx, of course!

Havoc

Havoc
Nuff Said! This little rough and tough dynamo takes her job very seriously! Havoc is an energetic, enthusiastic, well-balanced K9 Counselor who specializes in being “unbalanced and untrained”. Make no mistake; Havoc’s obedience is top notch, but her ability to “switch” from balanced to unbalanced dog makes her job pretty unique to our canine training and behavior therapy program. Her job, along with her cohorts Hoodwink and HyJinx, is to create ...
