ABOUT HOGAN, CEO (Canine Executive Officer), Hogan Bandanas
Hogan is an intelligent and energetic Jack Russell Terrier named after Ben Hogan, the legendary golfer.
As a puppy he was easy to train using positive reinforcement and clicker training.
Hogan stays active by competing in local pet trick contests, practicing fly ball, working out on his Jog a Dog
and just running around the front yard catching large balls that he has deflated.
Hogan won his first pet trick contest, the Berea Grindstone Festival, when he was only 9 months old!
He was voted Dogs Best Friend in 2002.
Hogan is the Grand Prize winner for Talent in the American Pet Idol contest for 2 years in a row!
Being true to his namesake, Hogan delighted the judges by gripping a golf club!
He has met famous folks like Pet Star champion, Skid Boot, TV personalities, Dick Goddard, Eileen McShea,
Kenny Crumpton, Jeff Maynard, and Kim Wheeler.
Hogan was the local winner of People and their Amazing Animals. He is the Best Pet Trick winner at Chalet Debonne Winery Pet Day.
Many of the events benefited local charities such as the Berea Animal Rescue, the Animal Protective League, SAFE
(Safety for Animals and Families in Emergency), Pet Paluzza, and the Greyhound Adoption of Ohio.
SAFE Cover pet runner-up
In 2003 Hogan was highlighted at the Canine Fun Days when he performed with Skid Boot, the $25,000 winner of
Animal Planet's Pet Star. Hogan waves to the crowd while Skid Boot and David Hartwig look on.
Here are some pictures of Hogan tricks.
When Hogan is not competing in pet talent contests he spends his time making people smile
by visiting a local nursing home. He is certified as a therapy dog by Therapy Dogs International.
Hogan enjoys reading the latest news in Dog Fancy.
Hogan loves the work of Cleveland artist, Hector Vega.
