I have taken both of my dogs to Dave van Garderen at Kennelwood for training starting when they were four months old. I have found Dave to be both professional and caring for my dogs and my training desires for them. Both of my dogs are very large and I wanted them to be trained to be well behaved and to walk with me without pulling me. Not only did Dave train my dogs, and me, how to walk nicely together, he also trained my older dog to compete in Rally Obedience and to become a therapy dog. Therapy dog work is something that my older dog and I love to do together and I am so proud of how well behaved he is during these visits. When I take my dogs out in public, I get many compliments on how well mannered they are and that is something that I could not have accomplished without Dave's training. I have referred my daughter and many of my friends to Dave for training their dogs and they have all been very well pleased with the results of the training and with Dave's very professional manner. In addition, he is a very nice young man and my dogs love him!
I have also used Kennelwood for grooming and boarding and I have been very pleased. Everyone that I have met at Kennelwood is extremely nice and very professional and I will never take my dogs anywhere else!

We have been using Kennelwood for dog training for many years and cont. to prove our loyalty by driving almost 100 miles every week to be part of Dave van Garderen 's training class. He not only helps us train my son's service dog but also played a huge part in the rescue and reahab. of our Shilo Shepherd Angus. Without Dave's passion and expertise we would not have our beloved pets today. The transformation of the animals is amazing and we never get tried of seeing how much the dogs love working for Dave. He is an inspiration and one of the best trainers in this area. Dave goes above and beyond his job duties and takes a personal interest in each dog. Don't waste your money and time by going somewhere else. If your are serious about your dog and want true results you MUST see Dave.

Kennelwood itself isn't the best run business I have ever seen, but their trainer Dave Van Garderen is AWESOME! My family has had several dogs trained by him (from pets, therapy dogs, and even protection) and they are all great dogs. Dave is the best in his field and I wouldn't recommend anyone else. He really knows what he is doing and can analyze a dogs behavior and know how to change/fix it immediatly.

i agree exactly with what laura said word for word i worked there for over a year, and dogs get left out in the cold and freeze for the so called "day camp" sometimes even with icicles hangin from there mouth litterally. Alot of the the employees do get ripped off too theres been people that i know do a great job and works hard up there and it goes unnoticed and ended up gettin fired for somthin completely rediculous, i know cause i forgot to either clock in or clock out and got fired for it but i know some employees tht dont even do there job or dont care but they are still around and they will be too if kennelwood doesnt turn that place around behind the scenes, corporate basically forces u to lie to the customer you arent allowed to say anything negitive even if its the truth. But one thing is true the employees do definatly get attatched to some of those dogs and it really hurts to leave them especially when u get fired for somthin rediculous when ur pretty much one of the only ones tht work there and really put in a great amount of effort even extra work. Kennelwood just adds to how fake they are with the cameras rolling too. that place is horrible

I take my dogs to Kennelwood and have for years! The staff is very friendly and caring-they know my dogs very well because they want to. My dogs get VERY excited when we turn the corner and they know they're going to Kennelwood. I recommend this wonderful place to anyone to take their beloved pet because this will be their 2nd home. Disgruntled employees-who listens to you?

Trust me. I used to work here. This place is terrible. They over book themselves and shove large dogs in small kennels. They are rarely fed or let outside. they do not get any affection or attention. The managers are awful and the people at corporate hire these awful people to run their stores. Kennelwood is currently trying to franchise. That is a scary thought. They don't have a good company now. I can't imagine it will get any better when there are more of them. TCLC is our saying, Trust, Commitment and Loving Care is our saying. Well, no one trusts anyone. Employees get ripped off all the time. Commitment is a bunch of B.S. too. No one cares about anyone but themselves. Everyone acts like Alan Jones (the president) is such a wonderful guy, but let me tell you, he is a prick. I know for a face that he touched someone inappropriately. No one helped...they are all afriad of him. He sucks. And as far as the Loving Care thing goes, its not true. ALL THEY WANT IS YOUR MONEY! All my life I wanted to work with animals, then when I finally got a job were I could, it was awful. It shouldn't be like that.

I have been bringing my dog to Kennelwood since I got her in 2003. She has been through puppy obedience classes, worked with a day trainer and enjoys going to camp everyday. When I take her in the mornings she is excited to get out of the car often snubbing me for the excitement she is about to enjoy. The workers have always been friendly, know most dogs by name and are quick to get you what you need. I have taken my dog to a few other kennels, but the cost at Kennelwood and the love provided makes it a no brainer.

Don't bring your pets to Kennelwood. They care more about your money than your pet. For example, a bunch of dogs were recently FORGOTTEN about for more than 24 hours while boarding here. If the staff hadn't argued about it the managers were going to send them home covered in urine and feces. We talked them into letting us clean the dogs up but they still charged the people full price and didn't tell them their dogs weren't fed or cared for at all for over a day. This stuff is pretty normal here. All Kennelwood cares about is your money, not your pet or their staff. Trust, Committment, and Loving Care, is supposed to be our motto but even the employees don't trust this company. The committment is to the higher ups getting rich, and the Loving Care part is just B.S. Your dogs and cats are better off somewhere smaller, that puts your pets ahead of profits. This is the fast food joint of pet care.

My dog came back from boarding with them and he was literally trembling when they brought him out to me after only two days. He smelled like pee and when I got him home I realized he'd also broken a nail. They offered to pay the vet bill but there was no apology or explanation. I felt like I was just being run through the ringer for my money so I can't imagine how my dog must've felt.

We take our dogs to get their hair cuts at Kennelwood Village. It is very easy to make an appt., they get you in right away, and the service is wonderful. I know my pets are in good hands here. They also have a wonderful boarding service if you are planning on leaving your pet for a while.

The Dog Obedience classes offered by Kennelwood Village are wonderful. My dog was a bit of a challenge due to his fear of the other pets in the class and the fact that is lack of sense of smell made him not care for rewards. The instructor we had was patient and worked with us individually to create a successful situation.
