Introduction: PERFECTION IS ACHIEVED NOT WHEN THERE IS NOTHING MORE TO ADD, BUT WHEN THERE IS NOTHING LEFT TO TAKE AWAY. WE PROGRESSIVELY INCREASE YOUR DOG'S ATTENTIVENESS, THUS BUILDING THEIR CHARACTER, THEREFORE MAKING THEM A BETTER DOG. 40 Cal Kennels is a family owned business, run out of our home. We are on all social media. (Message us on fb) We have no outdoor kennels, just a simple dog friendly home environment for your fur babies to reach their full potential and enjoy. Why choose a home environment instead of a fancy facility? 1. Lower prices, overhead is minimal. 2. At a big name facility your baby will spend much more time caged or crated, Most likely only brought out for brief training sessions, your pet is a part of the pack! Treated with the same care as we would treat our own. 3. More personalized than a facility. 4. your pet won't be returning home to a facility. 5. Desired behaviors will translate easier when returning to a similar environment that it was trained. At 40 Cal, training consists of Puppy Training, Basic Obedience and Behavioral Modification. Our personal dogs are APBT'S and we specialize in large breeds, but will take any breed. We also offer transportation services so owners don't have to take as much time out of their busy schedule to drop off or pick up their dogs. We offer daily/weekly updates via text, pictures, and videos. 40 Cal prides itself on helping strengthen the bond between owners and their dogs... we offer psychology based training methods, instead of relying on bribery methods such as treats. We give dogs character, Therefore making your dog a better dog. Sometimes it's only a matter of a language barrier between the two species. Our job is to break that language barrier and help both dog and human become better equipped at communication. For our boarding guests, we want to offer a comfortable alternative to a commercial boarding facility. At 40 Cal, visitors are ALWAYS welcome! Never board your baby anywhere you're not welcome to visit. $850 for 2 week board and train (recommended) for issues such as: biting/aggression of any kind. $75 per hr session. $30 for 30 minute walk $45 per day-boarding

Dog Training

Tony is very experienced and knowledgable about dogs. At first I was reluctant to send my dog away with a stranger, but you shouldn't worry. Tony stays in touch. I can see the difference in my dog. It was especially helpful that Tony spent time with me when he brought my dog back. He is good at training the owner as well as the dog!

Dog Training

My small dog (20lbs) was having issues with socializing with other dogs and discipline. I enrolled him in the 2 week boarding program and he has come back a completely different dog. On our walk, the day he came home, a strange dog ran up on him and he remains totally calm and in control. Huge win for him and me! I will definitely recommend 40-cal-kennels and I will be signing up for additional training classes.

Dog Training

I was very impressed with him and I am sure he will be able to train this little guy. I can"t wait to see how well behaved he will be. And my other dog will be thrilled to no end to have him just leave him alone and quit nipping at his legs.

I took my dog to 40 Cal Kennels for behavior issues. He was very honest about what to expect during and after the 2 week training session. He answered all my questions honestly. He was great about keeping in contact and giving up dates during the training time. At pick up I could see the great bond he made with her and the difference in her. It is definitely worth the money but up to you to put in the follow up work with your dog. I will definitely be referring 40 Cal Kennels to others.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    All of our services are customized to fit you and your dog's needs. We have a baseline/scale system but each family has it's own needs and requirements and we strive to meet everyone's expectations. Puppy Training starts at $800/bi-weekly and we offer Basic Obedience and Behavior Modification as well.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    We try and keep things as simple as possible. We do require a non-refundable scheduing fee when the owners are ready to schedule.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I personally have almost 40 years of hands-on experience. I am currently attending an accredited school to become a Certified Canine Training and Behavior Specialist.
