2 Southern California dog trainers going to jail in animal abuse case


LOS ANGELES — Two Southern California dog trainers have pleaded no contest to charges they abused dogs in their care.

The Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office says 28-year-old Junior Barillas Morales and 25-year-old Natasha Elena Ahmad entered the plea Wednesday.

Deputy District Attorney Amarilla Blondia says Morales was immediately sentenced to five years in state prison.

Ahmad was sentenced to six months in jail, five years of formal probation, 45 days community labor and animal neglect classes. She’s also banned from owning or possessing any animals for 10 years.

Customers of the Acton business, Real Deal K-9s, said they paid thousands of dollars and received very sick, thin dogs.

Prosecutors say investigations turned up thin, sick and dead dogs at the facility in Los Angeles County near the Antelope Valley.
