I spoke with Paul several times on the phone. Paul continually told me how busy he is because he is such a great trainer. He told many stories in the several phone calls I had with him. From those calls I can tell you Paul does not stretch the truth he just flat out lies. When I did some calling around to see how others felt about Paul it was about 50/50. So I went to look at his facility. Wow what an eye opener. He was not expecting me and immediately made excuses for the poor conditions of his kennels. Paul showed me a dog he stated only he had trained and that the dog was finished. It was my opinion that the way that dog performed was mediocre at best. If you are looking to have Paul train your dog I suggest you meet him in person and see some of his work. It is my bet you will make the same decision I made NOT to have him anywhere near my dog.

I took my dog out for training and the first 2 weeks they didn't let me see him. When I did see him he had very bad diarrhea, it was coming out like water, he had lost 20lbs. Paul said he was fine another week went by saw our dog the diarrhea was no better. I decided to take him to the Vet and kept him home for a week. Took him back to Paul to finish training. When I picked him up the diarrhea returned. I returned to the vet he stated he got a virus from his kennels it took our dog 30 days to get over it, and a vet bill of 400.00. so beware

Paul (and his son Josh) have a fantastic reputation and they do an excellent job training hunting dogs. I would highly recommend them. I wonder if the poor reviews below were from people trying to board their little pampered "fluffy" lap dog. This man trains hunting dogs, and is good at it.

I drove up to this place one Sunday morning about 10 am to see about boarding my dogs and two people literally got in a truck and fled as I was pulling up to the office. When I got out to find someone to help me, I noticed there were beer cans and bottles all over the place like I'd just missed a party. The place looked like an absolute dump.

Paul Cacciatori, Starlight Kennles has done 12 dogs for me, As a dog man myself I have studied under him and did several years of home work before I ever spent a dime, I have only the highest reguard for his kennel and operation, Do not hesitate to call me.

Before I chose which trainer to entrust my dog to, I did a lot of research and spoke with a lot of people. I heard nothing but accolades regarding Starlight Kennels so I thought it was worth a phone call. I admit it took me about 48 hours to get ahold of Paul because he as away at a trial but once the initial meeting was set, all went quite smoothly. I got a tour of the grounds and was impressed with the kennels, facility, and the fact that they had someone living there on site. I knew my lab would be well taken care of which gave me a huge sigh of relief.

Once the training started, I realized that not did Starlight Kennels train my dog, but they also trained me. The dog is only as great as his/her handler and now I'm a handler worthy of my terrific dog. Nothing beats sitting in a duck blind with a dog that actually sits quietly and waits for a command.

This review is really in regards to the reviews posted by "Nancy A" and "Kay A." I've been to Starlight Kennels many times both expected and unexpected and with the exception of the typical chaos upon first moving in, there has never been filth nor a mess. I Believe that these two ladies are perhaps confused because they are definitely mistaking. Upon talking to Paul, it seems neither one of the gals have even discussed training with him so they are talking from a non-client point of view. It's a shame these review boards are not more aware of what is being posted as trash talk is not helpful to anyone.

As for my own experience, I'm very pleased with the layout and cleanliness of the kennel as well as with the trainers. Both Paul and josh have been nothing but professional.

We stopped by when they weren't expecting us and we thought the place was a filthy mess. I wouldn't leave my dog there.

Worst trainers I've ever dealt with! Not fit for a dog--I'll never return. There are far better options for training in Southern California.

Starlight Kennels in their new location has only gotten better. With more area for training. Easier access for boarding closer to the 91. Paul and Josh have Trained 3 of my dogs and I would never and will never go anywhere else. They are the most experienced and professional dog trainers in Southern California with over 40 years of experience. 5 Stars!

Message from Starlight Kennels

Starlight has taken over the location at 5800 Bluff Street in Norco Cal. Added to the kennel we already have on 56th st.,we now have plenty of room for boarding and training. We have increased our staff so we have even more individual time for each dog. Same Quality we have stood for for years. We still specialize in bird dog training along with the finest obedience training , what we really gained is boarding room
