Legacy Canine (“Catch them in the act of doing something good”) is a well-established dog training and behavior center in Sequim, Washington (don’t you just love the name of that little town? [the ‘e’ is silent]).
Terry Ryan has trained dogs and their people since 1968, first in the States and later in Japan. She is an author and speaker at national dog training conferences and even teaches ‘chicken camps’ where dog trainers train chickens!
The Legacy Canine logo is an English Cocker*, a breed Ryan has lived with since the 80s. She recently told EverythingDogBlog, “I like this logo because to the average person, it looks like a mixed breed dog while to the purebred fancy, it looks like the English Cocker that it is.” And to Ryan, it also looks like her own Cocker, Brody.
The design was drawn by Elaine Diedrich who has trained with Ryan for more than 15 years.
I think the paw and hand together show willing cooperation in training on both ends of the leash, don't you?
*My personal favorite Cocker is the ASCOB – any solid color other than black!
