Denver dog trainer teaches dogs to behave
Rita Trevethan's pack includes two Belgian Malinois, Legend and Deva.
Like the well-known German shepherd, the Belgian Malinois is bred primarily for personal protection and police work. It's one of four types of Belgian sheepdogs and is exclusively used by the United States Secret Service.

Description of work "Rita [Trevethan, the owner] trains my two Belgian Malinois/German shepherd hybrids. One dog was poorly socialized, and the other is a rescue. Rita also walks them weekly, scoops poop and boards them when I'm out of town."
Member comments "I didn't have much hope for my puppy until I found out about Rita from somebody at the dog park. I'd unsuccessfully tried training at a national pet store. Rita came the first day with her pack of dogs, and for the first time, I had more hope. She uses humane techniques to help establish the owners as the leaders of the pack. We have worked in the home, at the dog park, and at Cherry Creek State Park to help us with different challenges my dogs faced. Both dogs love her and look forward to her weekly visits. After staying with her, they're exhausted and more well-mannered. For the truly challenging dogs, Rita is always available to their owners on her cell for guidance. She's also a very good value compared to other trainers. Rita is passionate about what she does and it's obvious she's born to do this!"
