What's in a name? over picture of Marleen with dogs

I often get the question, “How did you come up with the name Team Red Dog?”

My love of dogs was born the same time I was, and I always wanted a red heeler cattle dog. When the time was right, I found the most precious red heeler puppy at a breeder but after driving him home, realized that I was terribly allergic to him. I was heartbroken to have to return the puppy. A year passed and I decided that allergies or not, I simply wasn’t giving up. So when the local animal shelter called me to tell me that they had a litter of red heeler-mix puppies, it was my moment! My first “Red Dog”, Mickey, was my first official cattle dog.

Sometime later, I was in Monument Valley, Utah and fate intervened to match me with another cattle dog. I found a hungry stray sleeping in the dirt and mooching French fries from tourists. A local family reassured me that she was no-one’s dog. I canceled my flight home, rented a pick-up, and the newly named Najonni (means “beautiful” in Navajo) and I headed back home for the Pacific Northwest.

In the spirit of “what’s one more dog” I ended up with two lovely canine companions for many happy years. The impact of this event and my deep bond with both of my red dogs made it clear to me that I wanted to build my company to emulate all that Najonni and Mickey stood for.

Modeled by the red heeler breed and confirmed by my own dear Najonni and Mickey, we stand for steadfast loyalty, high energy, determination (to face even the toughest cattle) with the intelligence and innate problem solving skills to do the best job. And with that…Team Red Dog was born.
