Well I see lots of good reviews here but I had bad dealings with Paul. The man lies he makes promises that seems he doesn't remember, and as I speak with other dog owners that know Paul they too state he lies also, they told me that I better get it in writing. In our story he says he can help with our dog, she does not have perfect hips, but he states she will live a long life with no problems, states you get her fixed (after $400.00) and bring her to me and I will sell her for you. She could make a good hunting dog Paul says. Months go by and he calls to say he needs her picked up. Next thing I know he has a bill for training, We never signed a contract for him to train, Paul told us that he would take the money from selling her for any fees. by the way he said he could sell her for about $3000.00. All we wanted was a good home for her to get out and run. The last thing, I don't even hunt, so why would I want a bird dog. I take it that I will have to take him to court and prove the man he is. That will bring out the truth and it can then be broadcasted to the world. so you use him get it in writing

Let me tell you about Starlight and Paul. 10 years ago I went looking for someone to train my dog, Bow. After excuses and put-off's from many others I found paul through another gun-dog owner. I called paul and asked if he would train my dog. He said he would.

I still remember the day my wife and I met Paul. We were looking for a 6'06" 300 pound man that goes with his voice. Well there was this guy that was nothing that I expected, 5'08" or so and a buck-60 in weight, and I knew I was him from a 100 yards away just from his voice.

In five minutes we knew he was the the person that we were going to trust with my dog and would take a rookie gun-dog owner and a pup and make us a team. I am here to tell you the dog was easy for him but me....another story.

In a few short months, Bow was taking me hunting and making sure to show me where to find the birds and always bringing them to me.

Bow is is an old boy now and mostly rides around the yard on the forklift with me and loves to be with me more then anybody.....except Paul. As soon as we roll in and he hears Paul's voice, all he wants is to see paul.

At my business, C.W. FEED and PET SUPPLY in Rancho Cucamonga, many people and trainers, some of the best in the state, come in and want me to push their kennel but, I will always be loyal to the person I feel is the very best "DOG MAN" out there and that is Paul Cacciatori.

Paul and I have become very good friends and he has even blessed me with the chance to big game hunt with him and to teach me a little of his outdoor skills.

As the owner of C.W. Feed and a life long hunter I strongly suggest looking into STARLIGHT KENNELS for your dog training. Go to Raahauge's Shooting Enterprises and ask them where Paul is training the dogs and just watch. 10 years after meeting Paul I still do and am amazed every time.

I call VERY VERY few people a true friend and put my name on even fewer but always will Paul.

I gonna make it simple if you have a dog that needs some training this is it.
If your a hunter and want bird dog training this is the place.
Do you need training then get your dog to Paul.
As a Waterfowler to watch your dog do multiple marks on a snow goose hunt and pick out a sailing crip 200 plus yard retrieve bring it back and picks up the other three in the field now thats a dog .
Drives back on blinds and take your casts .(teamwork)
Or just being the 90+lb lab gentle giant at the safari day for kids event with the little ones is CONTROL STARLIGHT KENNELS(TRAINING).
I Have had the pleasure of learning so much from STARLIGHT KENNELS THAT I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THEM FOR THERE PROFESSIONAL UNDERSTANDING CARING AND THE LOVE FOR THE BREED IS SECOUND TO NONE .
SO WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR CALL PAUL!!!!!!

I have known paul for almost 20 years, and have found him to be honest and of great integrity. He has trained both my sons and my dog to a level that was higher than I expected. Paul has been honest and upfront with me or any client that I have seen at any training session. I know that Paul has given freely of his time to other people or organizations.Paul has "2" passions in his life, his family and the dogs. I am glad that I met Paul, not only for being a great trainer, but also for being a great friend.

I have been hunting for over 26 years and first ran in to Starlight Kennels when I was a young man. For years I wanted to hunt behind a dog that was well trained. For years i was guided by the folks out at Starlight Kennels on bird hunts. Once older I purchased a Lab from the folks @ Starlight kennels and later had him trained for bird hunting. I will have to tell you that if your having issue with your dog, its not the dog...its you! Paul understands the bread better than any other person I have come across in my life. I have spent years inside the bird hunting world and although this does not make me a professional it does give me some insight into the folks who think because they read a book or go to couple dog training classes or weekend field trial events that they know it all. My opinion is this, research out the breed your wanting to have as a companion and family pet, as they will be around for some time. Research out the blood lines and look for quality trainers who first and foremost are interested in one thing only...and that is the dog and not your wishes into making a dog something it isn??t or can??t be. I still have my 9 year old lab...Connor and he still out performs me and the others around me. I hunt with him at least 65-85 days a year now and as breed he is awesome, as a partner he is the best but as far as what he is capable of...well that??s all on Paul, as he breed my dog, trained my dog and moreover help train me. In the end my recommendation Neil is slow down and listen to the man who has had thousands of clients and thousands of dogs cross his path...and if you??re lucky he will teach the truth about dogs and moreover a thing about life and you!
Good luck to you and your dog.

I strongly recommend Paul & Josh at Starlight Kennels.
He does best with Labradors, but also does AMAZING Job training "other breeds.
He has trained my Flat coat Retriever, Irish Setter as well as Gordon Setter.
In fact, a few years ago I witnessed him having a Rotweiler retrieve a bird for him!!! Yes, it is not everyday you see something like that from a non-retrieving breed. But he is THAT good!
They have helped trained not 1, not 2 but 3 of my dogs. The first one was 7 years ago (Flat Coat), then 3 years ago (Irish Setter) and the latest one Gordon Setter in the picture is STILL with him.
Not interested in having your dog retrieve birds, he also does AMAZING job with obedience training as well...
How legit is this posting? Look at the picture, it speaks for itself. My Gordon Setter retrieving a bird, picture taken July 2010. If you have ANY doubt about his ability to train a dog, go visit him or ask him for a reference.
Anyone who has had their dog with Paul will STRONGLY vouch for him as well as Josh, who we are all fortunate to have follow in his dad's footsteps!

I highly recommend Paul at Starlight Kennels to anyone who is looking for a World Class dog trainer... While my PudelPointer was going through training with Paul and his son Josh, I was also being trained on how to become a good dog handler, by watching and listening to them. In my experience, they were both true professionals who showed great dedication to giving me and my dog everything (and more) that was promised... Absolutely worth every penny!!

After researching dog trainers we chose Starlight Kennels to train Henry our first hunting dog. They came highly reccommend from everyone we spoke with.
We have a Pudelpointer that points, tracks and retrieves. With Paul's training of both dog and handler, Henry earned a NAVHDA Utility Title at under 2 years of age. This is quite an achievement. Paul an Josh did a great job. There are just not enough words to thank them for all they have done for us.
I also use them for boarding my German Shepards. The kennels are very clean, and the dogs are treated very well.
I am hoping in the Spring to get a puppy so Henry will have a hunting companion. At the proper age I will be excited to turn the pup over to Starlight Kennels for training.
I would highly reccommend them to anyone with dog training needs,

Starlight Kennels has been responsible for training 2 of our dogs over the past 2 years. One was brought to him for hunting training and the second was brought to him with obedience issues. Both dogs now have JH titles and the first dog is well on her way to a SH title. We thought nothing could be done with our problem dog but Paul and Josh turned him into a great hunter. We have also boarded an elderly, ill dog with Paul and Josh. She was treated with great care and respect. My wife and I would recommend Starlight Kennels to anyone.

We have been doing business with Starlight Kennels since 1999. We trained our first black lab with Paul It was a great experience for our whole family. He also had to train us as well! We got back our second dog in in March, and Paul now working with his son Josh once again did a wonderful job. It is really a family experience for us. We also board our dogs there while we vacation, knowing they will have great care. Neil is a confused person who obviously never met this great team.

I have been a customer of Starlight Kennels for the last 3 years and Paul and Josh are the most professional trainers and business owners I have ever met. They are extremely talented in the ability to get the best out of your dog. They have treated my dog with the same love and attention that I give my dog every day. They go above and beyond to help us dog owners long after we have completed our training with our dogs. I would not even think of trusting anyone else with my dog

My experience with Starlight Kennels has been nothing but positive. From day one, the staff at Starlight Kennels have been very professional and knowledgeable about my gun dog's needs. To say the least, I have been asked more than once in the field-"where did I get my dog trained and how can I get in contact with them"! I have and always will send my dogs and my close friend's dogs to Starlight Kennels!

Paul and Josh of Starlight Kennels will bring out the best in your dog. Having never sent a dog to a professional trainer before I didn't quite know what to expect. The results speek for themselves. We now have a wonderful, obedient family dog, and a world class hunting companion. I am so impressed with the results... I did not know my dog could ever be so well trained. I tell everyone I come across about Starlight Kennels. Now in the future, every dog I own will be sent to Starlight Kennels and I know they will be well taken care of and come back amazing!

Starlight Kennels are the best trainers out there for the family pet, basic hunting dog, or a top notch competition ready dog! They will take the time to explain every step of what they are doing, and you WILL see results. These guys love the animals they work with and will go the extra mile in everything they do! I will be coming back to them with my next hunting dog.
