For him, dogs are more trustworthy and easier to relate to than most people. DX’s dream is to be a tactical dog trainer. He believes he can
create a new breed of K9 warrior; unlike anything that exists today. All he needs is a chance to demonstrate a new concept that could

often humorous, sometimes gritty, full of intrigue, heart-pounding action and
heartwarming family moments and holiday themes." - Kevin Brett
