Back to Puppies

June 2016
I am pleased to announce videos and pictures can be resumed as I have leased a new camera and training can resume now that I have recovered from my surgery.

Feb 2016
I am sorry to inform that we can not currently update any pictures or videos for awhile as the camera used has been stolen and is still currently being investigated by Griffith Police.

It may be some time before I can purchase a new camera to resume the Therapy videos or update pictures.

Sorry for any inconvenience this has caused.
Thank you for your patience and understanding,

Comitas Therapy Dogs (Comitas Labradors)
