Introduction: At Forrestglenn Kennels we have been training dog for over 20 years Helping people enjoy their dogs more with a little training We can stop leash pulling , jumping and biting. Of course we encourage all dogs to be housebroken completely As well as training ,things like going to the bed , coming when called and other obedience commands. When training with dogs it is so important to help the dog understand what you want. That is what I do best, and help you with as well. I offer information on why dogs do what they do, information that will stay with the client for ever, Not just how to handle a few troubling areas. Although we do work on stopping ,things like biting and jumping, working on housebreaking issues as well as stopping the leash pulling. My training methods get results, helping to lower your stress and make the dog a joy to have around!!!! After years of training, I know there are a lot of different ways to train ,but you must know which method is the right one for each different dog I provide dog training for all breeds and all ages. I can’t think of anything better than helping people enjoy there dogs more. U will get real joy out of seeing the wonderful changes i can help you make with your dogs, with the right training. I believe I am making a difference in the world of dogs one dog at a time! Teaching people how to care for their pet is the most important way to slow the flow of dog to the shelters. Watching young puppies grow to be great dogs is a real satisfaction!

Dog Training

I started working with Kevin about 4 weeks ago with my two 2-year old Pug/Lab mixes. They had some very basic puppy training and were generally housebroken, but it was a struggle trying to train two dogs alone as a single person to get them to be the well mannered pups of my dreams; in comes the secret weapon, Kevin. While I agree with other reviewers that he is quite the accomplished "dog whisperer", with his assistance he has helped ME become more confident to show the leadership needed on my part to effectively train my pups and have it STICK. His explanations to help gain an understanding of WHY dogs do what they do and demonstrations of how to mitigate the negative behavior while reinforcing the positive have been life altering for us and our human/dog relationships. In only three sessions I have seen a marked improvement in their behavior and overall happiness, and have experienced a significant decrease in my own stress. My favorite thing about Kevin is the way he teaches; he will demonstrate a technique as many times as you need, is willing to adapt to what your limits are as far as what you want to accomplish with your dog, and has a kind manner that is highly informative without ever becoming condescending. While private training is definitely more costly than the group glasses offered at the big box stores, working with Kevin has achieved more in three weeks than several of the 6 week puppy sessions I have taken with my pups, and the training is tailored to what THEY need, without having to adhere to a set class agenda that may or may not be effective for the way they learn. I highly recommend Kevin and ForrestGlenn Kennels without reservation; hiring Kevin is a worthy investment into your pups and relationship with them, and worth every penny.

We signed up for the 4 session package for our 9 week old Husky mix. We wanted to start her out with good habits, teach her basic commands, and get a handle on some behavioral things and crate training. 2 sessions in and she’s doing great! She’s slept through the night all last week and is learning commands quicker than anticipated. We’re really grateful for Kevin’s expertise and the way he explains things. The combo of his help plus consistency on our part has already paid off. He’s flexible, great with our puppy and obviously knows his stuff. I would highly recommend going with ForrestGlenn Kennels for dog training!

I like Kevin’s explanations and demonstrations of various commands, leash training, dog food, etc. My dog has certainly welcomed Kevin for each lesson... as have I!

We couldn’t be happier with the training Kevin is providing for our labradoodle puppy, Ace. Having a labradoodle puppy can be overwhelming at times, but Kevin helps us to see the light at the end of the tunnel. We tried another group option for training, but there truly is no substitute for in person training with a professional. ForrestGlenn Kennels and Kevin get our highest and most sincere Recommendation.

First time owning a puppy and we had so many questions! We found Kevin through thumbtack. He offered a puppy training package and helped us with basic obedience and so much more. He made training sessions easy and convenient by coming to our home and working with our schedule. Was very easy to communicate with and get a hold of. He was able to teach us how to establish the foundations for teaching our puppy. He answered any and all questions regarding training,socializing, sleeping and so many other things. I would highly recommend him and would continue to work with him in the future as my puppy gets older.
