Ecco D'Oro

Sweetbriar’s Ecco D’Oro, (A.K.A. “Ecco”), has taken social media by storm. He and his trusty “ghost writer”, Amy Hines are an inseparable comedic team who warrant at least one good belly laugh a day through the documentation of this naughty dog’s daily antics. Amy translates what she believes to be an accurate account of Ecco’s thoughts onto Facebook daily posts while tackling some serious animal issues. Ecco’s “pack” has whelped into a powerful philanthropic vessel that has literally helped thousands in need through donations and networking. With the evolution of Ecco’s show career as well as his philanthropic efforts, the duo (along with their trusty photographer, Charnell Havens) have traveled to many wonderful places. Buckle your seatbelts and enjoy the ride while you watch these two share their journey as it unfolds. This is one sporting dog that puts his outstanding tracking skills to work as he flushes out the best hot spots on the east coast!

    Relax. There’s No “Knead” to Stress…

    I once heard an interesting fact. One of the biggest differentiating factors between an amateur and a professional is the ability to perform in a relaxed state.
