cooper joined the dbf family when he was just eight weeks of age. he was everything one would expect from a puppy — energetic, playful, feisty, loving, sweet, jumpy, cuddly, nippy, and of course, adorable.
we started training him immediately, working hard every day, using positive reinforcement. sure enough, he grew into a lovely, well-adjusted adult dog, who assists in dbf puppy classes and private training. he was the ultimate puppy teacher.
we lost him in october of 2020, to kidney disease, which he was diagnosed with at the age of two.
this was his life, and his work. we will never forget our special angel.
