There are an endless amount of high energy dogs that are quickly labeled as trouble makers and unruly because of their energy and lack of manners. These are not bad dogs, just super high energy pooches that just never learned any manners.

In this edition of the podcast I talk with Roo Yori about his super high energy pit bull Wallace, who started off a crazy shelter dog but with some hard work and training became a disc dog champion and all around great dog at home. Wallace’s story was made famous due to Jim Gorant’s book appropriately titled, Wallace.
