Training

Great bird dogs are not trained they are developed.  It’s a process that starts with the fundamentals and is built on a process of praise and reward and pressure and release.  Our trainers work to bring out the best in every dog and we maintain a high standard of performance for dogs completing the program.

Boarding

While most of the dogs in our care are sporting breeds we recognize that they are also companions and family pets when they are not in the field.  Our number one priority is making sure dogs are safe and comfortable during their stay and provide a home away from home.  Our staff is professionals at keeping bird dogs busy and exercised.   Call to schedule a tour and see what a day at Valhalla Kennels looks like.

Valhalla Kennels offers a convenient place to train, hunt, and exercise your dog.  Located on a wooded creek bottom the ranch offers almost 500 acres of prime upland bird habitat.  Valhalla started as a family run cattle ranch in the 60’s.  Over the decades it has evolved into a Hunt Club, boarding facility, and premier training facility.  Our club is membership based but you don’t have to be a member to enjoy access to any of the training programs or the boarding kennel. Valhalla offers training options year round and our professional staff is available by appointment for private training sessions and evaluations.   Our philosophy has always been to make our members and clients fill like they are part of the family and to offer an experience that makes your dog excited every time they hit the dirt road headed to ranch. Come see why Valhalla is bird dog paradise….

Thanks for training Otto my Britt.  Jeff did a great job, he did exactly what I wanted from my dog Otto.  He did a great job of getting him started and he worked with us twice to explain what he had done.  He did not hurry us and he took all the time necessary to explain everything he did with Otto.  All I can say is what a great dog trainer, he really knows what to do.
I hope to bring Otto back again for just touch ups as needed, I am sure I will see you this Winter after Pheasant season in South Dakota.
I would without hesitation would  recommend your dog training to anyone, and I am very hard to please.  He is an awesome trainer, and an awesome teacher, you folks will do very well keep up the great work.

Thanks for all of your hard work and excellent training with Zeiss.  He is a hunting machine and a pleasure to run in the field.  I couldn’t be happier.

Jason,

I want to thank you and your entire team for the training Tyler bowman provide for our dog Stella. She was with you for 2 months and Tyler did a fantastic getting her ready for the upcoming pheasant season. Tyler was flexible with his schedule when it came for me to come out and work with him and her during her stay.  She cam n home a different dog she is fully “Whoa” broke and comes every time without hesitation.
Also we came out several times just to see Stella and the kennels were always very clean and well staffed.

I just wanted to let you know that you have a very nice facility and Tyler is a great trainer. I will be recommending Valhalla to anyone looking for training or kenneling services.

Thank You,

Cory
