Okay maybe actually just....Wilde...Nicole Wilde that is. "Nic" as we know her, has been a long time friend of this organization. She is actually one of the founders of Villalobos Rescue Center (along with Tia) when it started about 15 years ago. After leaving Villalobos to pursue her dream in dog training, she has also become quite the popular author on various canine behavior.
Here are just a couple of her published books that you can now order. When you purchase one of these books, use the code "PITBULL" and a percentage of all sales will come to Villalobos. So while you "learn", we "earn"!!

SO YOU WANT TO BE A DOG TRAINER
This is a GREAT book for those who are wanting to start their own dog training business. This book teaches you all about contracts, legalities and good ole customer service. I'm especially excited that her book has now become popular among the Prison Dog programs. What a great inspiration to inmates who are trying to learn a career in dog training and are preparing themselves for a successful release by learning all they can from this book. I think this read is one of the best ideas available on paper. To order, go to the following link:
