Our Students and Their Owners Love Us

“Big Times Kennels has been nothing short of wonderful for Forrest and I. We started off in obedience and had impeccable results, and continued our journey into agility. I never thought I’d be running a dog in agility, let alone excelling in it, and we owe it all to the trainers and facility that is Big Times Kennels!”


“We are so impressed with Big Times Kennel! This past year, we have utilized day boarding, boarding, and training with Tess–who can be a hot mess at times. She day boards two days a week, and it has been such a blessing. We appreciate that she is in an environment that stimulates her where she can safely interact with other dogs and people. She doesn’t sleep all day so she is exhausted when she comes home. Another bonus is that she can go inside and outside within her own space. She absolutely loves everyone who works at Big Times, especially John and Maureen. It is an amazing feeling to drop her off for boarding when we go out of town; we are comforted by the thought that we know she will receive excellent care. On the training side, we cannot say enough about Kim and her expertise. Tess worships her and is always eager to please her. Kim has shown unlimited patience with me while I work to put into practice what she is teaching me. She has provided stimulating training sessions in public places to help Tess and me feel more comfortable in various social settings. We are thankful that Big Times plays such an integral part in Tess’s life; they are very much responsible for helping to shape her into the good girl she is.”
