The Beginning

It all started in 1969 when I got my very first German Shepherd.  In 1972, I donated my German Shepherd to the military to become a Military Working Dog.  This was done with the stipulation I would be her handler after completing training. 

This began an eleven year journey in the U.S. Marine Corps where I would train and handle five (5) different dogs as a Bomb/Explosives Dog Handler working in the American Embassy in several foreign countries and ended in service with HMX-1,  the Presidential Helicopter Squadron.


Current day

After the loss of my eighth GSD, Otto (shown in top picture)  in 2016, I  was now in  need of a Service Dog to assist me with issues of anxiety and panic.  I went in search of a dog with a great personality and temperament to be used in this capacity and was blessed to have my current dog donated by a Texas breeder.

Many hours of training have gone into the development of this wonderful animal as a "First Responder" in assisting with medical needs.  She not only assist with the anxiety & panic issues but also now detects and alerts on blood sugar level changes to assist with my diabetes.

That said, it is so important to have a well trained, well mannered dog and a responsible dog owner if you are to have a happy home and a better community.   Not just Service Dogs, but also your pets and companions.  WhiteHaven Canine wants to help you achieve both of these goals.  


Satisfaction Guaranteed

With over thirteen years of working with dogs of all breeds, we are confident and are always prepared to assist you and your pets' training needs and ensure that you and your pet will receive the best care and love.  Your happiness and care is our priority and we strive to provide a service we would want our own pets to receive.
