Our home on

The Hill

It’s our hill and we love it…

We live on a handful of acres on a slight hill with rustic old barns dating back to the 1870s with our dogs, cats, and chickens.


The Pit Bull adventures began in 1999, when my son brought home the last of a litter of mixed breed puppies; at the time, I had never heard of Pit Bull Terriers. Johnny Blaze set me on the path toward love and understanding of Pit Bulls. Since then, we’ve had a few more pit mixes, all of which jhave been rescues.

Dog Training

After an incident in a negative training class with my second Pit Bull mix. I became interested in dog training and sought out positive only training, where we learned so much more. During these years, I met many other Pit Bull owners. Which led to more than 20 plus years of volunteer work for organizations, which I continue to do today. It also included 5 years of assisting positive dog training classes and a desire to learn more and provide information to others.


When I first began volunteering on their behalf in the early 2000s, there were very few Pit Bull rescue organizations or informational websites. At the time, the organization for which I volunteered was quite revolutionary and one of only a handful of organizations benefiting Pit Bulls or the rescue of them.

Break Stick

In 2012 we decided to start making break sticks as a reliable and trusted source that wasn’t a breeding facility or a ring of underworld dogfighters.

My most recent accomplishment was forming an organization with a fantastic group of people to further advocate for Pit Bulls and their owners. Pit Bull Synergy can be found here.

Dogs are really good for you!

Dogs are more than just cuddly companions; research shows that they provide significant health benefits to their owners. Dogs are our most devoted companions and they love unconditionally.

Having a dog around can help to reduce stress in both adults and children. They have been linked to lower blood pressure and to a lower risk of asthma in children.

Dog owners are also more active than non-dog owners, logging more steps per day on walks or just regular playtime, according to researchers.

Adopt a dog; it will benefit you!
