Welcome to Wolfcentric - Scroll down for updates and DOGS!

I work with dogs and hang out with dogs all day. Most dogs on here are currently being housed at BARC(Brooklyn Animal Resource Coalition), where I have been working since 9/11. BARC is a privately owned no-kill animal shelter located in the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn, NY. The facility can comfortably house a maximum of 25 dogs w/ individual runs. Most dogs we get, are either strays from the street, owner surrendered due to financial/personal difficulties and some, due to the new NY housing/landlord lease policies. We also rescue dogs from city pounds and kill shelters.


** Checkout this teaser trailer for my long overdue documentary about some BARC dogs. I have filmed over 200++ dogs as they come through BARC and find new homes, over the course of 6 years. Its quite difficult to put all this dogs life in one 46 minute documentary, but it will eventually happen.

Check out my dog ORBIT doing back-to-back tricks. I rescued him from the ACC in Harlem in may of 2001, when he was about 8 months old. I have a series of pictures of him doing his deed to about 30 different landmark attractions around the US when my band took him on a 2 month tour of America. He has some amazing shots of pooping on the lawn across from where JFK got shot, him peeing on the gates of Graceland, him locked up inside the kennel of Disneyworld and riding the tram. I'm going to scan them and post it soon.

>> Brenda meets Chance!

[first 5 minutes]

If you've been reading and seeing Brenda's progress as I walk and socialize her with other BARC dogs that are considered difficult, this is considered the granddaddy of them all. Chance is a superdog, a definite Alpha, and Brenda, who positions herself an Alpha, would seem proper a matchup for good positive reinforcement. These 2 superdogs meet for the first time under my supervision. Started them off shortleashed on each arm and blocking who ever starts the lunge/pounce with my body. Still in the safety here, no snarlings, no teeth, no aggression so far. Brenda was testing me the whole time, trying to trigger a reaction from Chance. Trying to chase him around and get him to play back, she was met with Chance sitting still everytime I yell Sit, and keeping his attention on me. Brenda kept trying the first 20 minutes, with Chance just sitting there, not reacting. She eventually gave up and 10 blocks later..Buddies! Now I can trust walking them in one hand, side by side. NICE!
