Dog Elite Training
Neal Mestas is the son of John Mestas, the founder and owner of Dog Training Elite. Like his father, Neal has been involved in dog training most of his life. Neal got his first shot at dog training when he was eight years old. He participated at a Junior Obedience competition and placed second! Thirty years later, Neal is at the top of his game! It's fair to say that this has become a genuine passion of his. He loves going to work every day, and gets joy out of helping families make their dogs just that…a member of their family, rather than a hassle that they have to cope with in their home. He offers personalized in home dog training, as well as group classes that are available to help you train your pet.
The level and type of training Neal offers is specialized to fit each person's specific needs. Each owner has the choice of what type of training, commands, and obedience they wish to have for their dog. Neal's assistant, and beloved family pet, is a Belgian Malinois named Bailey. Neal rescued Bailey when she was 8 months old, and has been a part of the Mestas' family for a year and a half. Neal, is eager to go to work every day in hopes of increasing the pet owner's quality of life, and I think Bailey would agree that it increases the quality of the dog's life as well! Neal and Bailey are eager and honored to come to your home and help solve all of your "Doggie Do's & Don'ts"!
Demo at event: Neal will be doing live training demonstrations throughout the day, including basic and advanced obedience and tricks with his dog Bailey. He will be doing two fun and interactive workshops for you and your best four-legged friend. Bring your dog to his booth for the workshops** to learn some new tricks!
Brittany Rescue: Lure Course
Brittany Rescue AZ is a volunteer, non-profit 501(c)3 organization dedicated to rescuing, rehoming and providing a senior sanctuary to purebred Brittanys, Brittany mixes and other sporting breed dogs.
Indy's Run for Rescue, operated by Brittany Rescue AZ is a fast-paced, fun chase sport for dogs otherwise known as a "lure course". The mechanically operated "lure" entices a dog to follow a plastic bag tied to a string. The course consists of agility obstacles which the dog negotiates during its chase. Indy's Run for Rescue is fun and entertaining for dogs and their owners. Big or small, fast or slow, young or mature dogs love to test their chase skills and their owners love to cheer them on. Indy's Run for Rescue is operated as a fund raiser to help the dogs in rescue and to raise money for other worthy causes such as canine valley fever.
Demo at event: Dog owners will be encouraging their dogs, of all ages and sizes, to test their chase skills at Indy's Run for Rescue. The cost is $6 for one run, $15 for 3 runs with all proceeds benefitting the Brittany Rescue.
The Blazin' K9s Flyball Racing Team was formed in 2008 in Chandler, AZ. They are a small group of people who love their dogs and enjoy the excitement of the sport of Flyball.
Demo at event: Competitive flyball racing with teams from Arizona, California and Nevada. Flyball racing is a high energy dog sport in which a team of 4 dogs jump over 4 jumps to a springloaded "flyball" box, catch the ball in their mouth and run back over the four jumps. The next dog passes into the dog returning until all 4 dogs have returned successfully. They are racing another team in the other lane. The fastest team wins the heat! It has also been called "drag racing" for dogs.
We are excited to welcome the following groups to perform at the 11th annual Woofstock event:
