Check out our 5 Star Reviews

If I could give Hunter Canine 10 stars I would.  We sent our Cane Corso, Samson, to them for their 3 week boarding/training retreat and it was easily a worthwhile investment. They didn't take our dog and magically turn him into a different dog that acts like a model citizen, what they did do was bridge the gap of communication between us and our dog.

Hunter Canine is amazing at what they do. Impeccably maintained facilities, professional staff, excellent training. Everything you would want in a professional training facility. There are many wonderful training facilities and trainers in the area, and it came down to finding the right fit for us, and we felt Hunter Canine was the best fit for us.

I am in absolute awe of the very skilled and patient trainers at Hunter Canine. I enrolled my two and a half year old frenchie/chihuahua mix, Diego into the three week training camp they offer after having a lot of questions answered and taking a tour myself (the grounds are immaculate, if you are wondering).... 

  I have been so incredibly grateful to Chad, George, and the amazing staff at Hunter Canine. I was worried my dog would lose some of his personality (and become robotic) and instead I have the same little comedian just with the ability to listen to commands and know how to behave in different circumstances.

Diego - Chihuahua Mix

Taking our 4 month old goldendoodle puppy to Hunter Canine was the best thing we ever did! Our puppy is now 7 months old and we cannot go anywhere without getting complimented on her behaviour. People are absolutely shocked to hear she is just a puppy. She goes everywhere with us, soccer games, baseball practice, hiking and to patios. She sits calmly as other, not so well trained dogs pass by and lunge and bark at her.

We have a 6 month old female Great Dane who recently went through Chad Hunter's 3 week residential training plus one additional week for e-collar training. Justin was her trainer and we can't give him enough praise about his training abilities.

In just a couple weeks we saw such a positive change in her behavior. Justin helped turn our dog into a pretty well behaved dog. She still has a lot of puppy in her, so training is ongoing. We continued the training after the residential training was over and plan to enroll her in the next intermediate training class.

Talk about money well spent. We just finished the 3 week training course at Hunter Canine. It was an amazing experience for dog Wrigley and us. Our trainer Caity spent an enormous amount of time addressing the behavioral issues we had concerns about. (She also uncovered some of her own.) She trained him and us and kept in touch via texts with almost daily updates during the 3 week period. We have continued to communicate as we implement all we learned. Every dog needs a Stay Bed! The entire staff is warm, friendly and professional. We highly recommend Hunter Canine.
