I love Mia stories! Thanks Alessandra!
Carol Osterman June 25, 2013 at 09:52 pm
We have all grown to love and adore Mia stories and this one was so beautifully written. Thanks forRead More sharing!

Loved this article about how the right training can turn a dog's life around. Good for Bubba'sRead More family for seeking help. So many people just throw dogs away.
Steven Weinstein June 5, 2013 at 09:53 pm
Getting your dog the best possible training is the equivalent of finding the best school for your 5Read More year old. Without a great education, which comes from a great teacher, you have a life filled with frustrations, set backs and disappointments. With a great education, you wind up with the most wonderful companion that you could ever dream of. Dogs give unconditional love. If we can be half the person our dogs think we are , we are doing amazing! Kevin is the best trainer I have ever seen in my 30 years of owning trained German Shepherds and Rottweiler's. I will be bringing my Xena back to spend 2 months with Kevin this summer as she continues her education. She is the 2nd dog I have gotten from Kevin, my 1st Shepherd Exodus was with me for almost 12 years .Every day was nothing but joy. He was always by my side, and as playful as he was, he was a fierce protector of my children, myself and our home. He was often described by my son's friends as being a "gentle giant" he was the result of wonderful training and proper socialization. Thank you Kevin and Abby Kennels !

This is great! I didn't know that a residential training program existed!
Ron Nadir June 4, 2013 at 10:43 pm
I would love to own one can you tell me how?
Laura M. June 5, 2013 at 07:21 pm
That is the cutest pup! Who wouldn't love to come home to that face!
Abby Kennels June 6, 2013 at 04:09 pm

I always look forward to the Abby Kennels' blogs but this one was your best ever. What anRead More inspirational story! Dogs bring so much to people but who would have thought that a dog could bring comfort to our soldiers serving so far away! Great, great job!
