TL;DR Dog Gone Seattle is being slandered and harassed by anonymous individual(s) who have made it their mission to take down anyone allegedly affiliated with Jeff Gellman/Solid K9 Training. DGS has attended Solid K9 Training seminars but has never hired Gellman to train rescue dogs and has never witnessed animal abuse during these seminars.
