Today is the day! The first episode of “Guardians of the Night” has been launched! Meet the K9s and their handlers, and find out just how the partnership can work in different situations. You can see how tight they are – and this first episode sets the scene for these dynamic duos:
Victoria had another episode of her running series “On the Stoop” this morning (which you can also view on her official Facebook page) – and her guest was the CEO of the Victoria Stilwell Dog Training Academy (and her husband), Van Zeiler.
Van and Victoria answered questions from people all over the world – who were curious about what the academy is all about.
During this interview – you find out things like; when the academy began, how long they’ve been creating it, what classes are like, how often the classes are held (in the US and the UK), and more. A lot of information in a small amount of time.
Of course, if you have any more questions – you can check out the official VSA website at http://vsdta.com
After Van and Victoria discuss the academy for a bit – Victoria hangs out to answer some dog training questions.
A great load of information regarding the VSA and dog training in general.

The Rotary Club of Canton held its second annual Public Safety Appreciation Luncheon Tuesday honoring officers who go above and beyond the call of duty in Cherokee County.
About 300 public safety officials, family members, and friends filled the Bluffs in Canton to honor those that put their lives on the line every day for the safety of the county….

“I went to a training seminar and four years later, I’m still working with them. The most important thing is that I think that I’ve been blessed for giving the honor of riding with these guys for four years and finding out what it’s like to be in this world,” she said. “I don’t think any civilian has the appreciation of what law enforcement does.”
Stilwell said she felt she was now a part of the brotherhood and sisterhood.
“I’m not a police officer and am not saying I am one, but because I’ve ridden with these guys for four years, I’ve really truly experienced what it is like to be on the front lines,” she said. “I’m there with my camera and we go out into all of the incidences that our guys are called into. That gave me such an appreciation.”…
If you’ve been keeping up with the many activities that Victoria has been involved in for the last few years – you have to have heard of the web series she’s been working on, called “Guardians of the Night”. A web-docudrama involving the Gwinnet County Sheriff’s Department, and their K9 partners. Victoria goes all in to get the story behind the way the officers and dogs work together. Here’s a feature from HLN that focuses on the series and the K9s:
This particular video was released in 2014 if that gives you any idea how long we’ve been waiting. Obviously some very hard work went into it, and Victoria and her crew wanted to make sure we to see the best of the best.
The release date has finally been set – February 21st – yep, next month! This series will be featured on Victoria’s official website (positively.com), and her official YouTube channel, so remember to check those sites out to watch it (and there will be an update posted on this blog when it’s available).
There you go – get ready for an amazing, never before seen, web series!
