Sicario was the Warriors Choice first round draft pick, and he has excelled in various obedience disciplines to include retrieval of objects, transfer and bracing, and towing wheel chairs through above grade terrain assisting his handler.
Sicario was presented to his beneficiary retired Navy Seal SO1 Bo Reichenbach in 2018 by retired NHL enforcer, and Stanley Cup Champion Scott “The Sheriff” Parker, and the WCF founding President.
Bo states, “Siccy is my best friend, and has been instrumental in my road to recovery by forcing me to stay active”. In the past 2 years, Sicario has been by Bo’s side through the highs and the lows, traveling all over the country, and remaining bedside through dozen of Bo’s surgeries at Walter Reed Medical Facility. Sicario has exceeded his role and has helped create a bond that truly is a testament to the meaning of “man’s best friend”. Bo states, “I can’t imagine what I would have done without sic in my life, he’s my little homie.”
When Sicario is not kitted up and working, he’s in Sicko mode cuddled up with his handler, retrieving logs, running hills, and sitting side by side with his Dad looking out at an endless panoramic view of the vast rolling hills of Billing, Montana.
Bourbon excels at many tasks such as bracing, balancing, and assisting in pulling.
Bourbon is the first dog to complete, the WCF service dog training program. He has helped our founder, Anthony Longo, in so many ways both mentally and physically as Bourbon is the reason Anthony decided to launch our service dog program for our combat veterans.
When Bourbon is not working, this 8-year-old, enjoys being active. He likes swimming, biking, hiking, long tempo-based runs either in his hometown of Jupiter, FL or in the mountains of Montana. Bourbon loves snuggling with his feline counterpart (and brother) Niko, but when he’s really excited he loves building pillow forts with couch pillows.
Thank you, Bourbon for being the inspiration to create such a wonderful program that has helped, and will continue to help so many combat veterans.
This beautiful, special girl is the bedrock to the WCF project. She belongs to our Founder, Anthony Longo, and has produced 3 litters in 4 years. Nika was brought into the United States from the world renowned Alphaville Bohemia Kennel out of the Czech Republic and has earned her PSA title. Her drive is similar to a nuclear reactor, but she is an extremely loving, loyal, Alpha female who has been a wonderful mother to her puppies.
In December, she gave birth to 8 little girls, and in the months ahead will be instrumental in teaching her babies etiquette behavior as we seek to evaluate our dogs for which are going to be a viable candidate to meet the needs of our combat veteran applicants.
When Nika is not whelping little puppy puppies, she enjoys spending time with grandma driving around town running errands and eating Arby’s sandwiches. Nika swims relentlessly in the ocean, or pool, and can run for days.
