Parker and Star

We were so very lucky and blessed to have met Jennifer and for her to start working with Parker. We have been coming for private lessons with her on Wednesdays ever since. We are hoping after the season is over that we can continue with her for other types of training beyond birds. 
We would like you to know and to express all that Jennifer has done for Parker and our six-year-old black lab, Star.  Since Parker and Star will be hunting together, Star needed to learn what Parker was learning, primarily “whoa” and for Parker and Star to learn to honor each other’s bird. May I just say, mission accomplished and then some!!



Just wanted to say Valhalla did an awesome job training Murphy!!
I’ve got the two best dogs anyone has ever had thanks to the training Valhalla offers!!!



Thank you so much for all the work you did with both Drake and Odin.  We Can’t wait to take Odin out in the field for his first hunt.  You’re an amazing person and phenomenal dog trainer.

I just wanted to take a moment to call out Valhalla Kennels.

My wife rescued an English Setter named Cody.   He was about a year old and absolutely wild.  We tried for almost a year to work with him on our own without much success – if he got off leash he’s run over the horizon.

We boarded him with Valhalla and had the trainer worked with him for 7 weeks. Picked him up a week ago. He looks great in the pheasant fields, and I can’t wait to hunt over him this fall. Just as importantly, we can now take him for walks off-leash, and he’s not as wild in the house. Completely different dog.

Great work.  Thanks,

Kennel Staff –  During a recent vacation we realized close to the last minute that we needed to use a kennel for our pets.  They had never been in a kennel before.  We have always used family or friends so I was very nervous.  From a quick visit to check out the kennel to dropping our dogs off and picking them up every single person we met there was wonderful.  I was left with a positive feeling that the people who work there truly enjoy their jobs and take such good care of all the dogs.  Thank you for making this a nice experience and for caring for our pets!
