Who are the Bad Dogs?

We established Bad Dogs Burl Source in Oregon shortly after we acquired two 8-week old labrador puppies, Kuma and Kriscoe. They got top billing after four remotes, a key board, a footrest, several shoes, etc .... The leader of the pack and least trained is ROB. Me, I'm the wife, Donna, who gets to pick up after all of them!

Kuma and Kriscoe were deemed "wonderful" dogs after they turned two. Now, six years later their training has paid off.


"We're all done unloading the burl caps. That will be four biscuits AND two belly rubs!"
Kuma and Kriscoe our really Good Dogs!
