Celebrating over 35 years of professional dog training

I would like to thank you for your time and skills that you put into my dog Kimber. She arrived at Weller Kennels at 6 months of age, the summer of 2003. This is my first "Duck Dog" so I did not really know what to expect. Upon arriving at your kennel, she was not what you would call "Man's best friend". As with any puppy, she had her way with everything in our house that looked good to chew on. Upon arrival and meeting with your trainer, we knew that she would be in good hands. The hard part was watching her confused look as we left.

One month later, we returned to see her progress. Wow, in just one month, she was a totally different dog. She could sit on command and heel on command. I was very pleased with the first month and counted the days for our next visit. We came to see her every month, and with each month she had progressed far past what I expected.

I was only able to leave her with Weller Kennels for 5 months due to my desire to get her in the swamp for her first duck season. The first couple of trips out where stressful, as they are for any new dog. After about three trips out, she started putting what you taught her into real life. On her 4th hunt, I sent her 100 yards to retrieve a downed goose. Once she saw the goose there was no stopping her. The pride that you feel upon a successful retrieve like that can't be put into words. The goose was actually bigger than her, but try to tell that to a high strung chocolate lab. The rest of the season went well with her learning every trip.

After the 5 months at your kennel, she has basically a started duck dog. The rest is up to me to fine tune her to my needs. I greatly appreciate your services and will highly recommend your kennel to anyone that wants a well trained dog, which I feel is the only dog worth having. You not only trained my dog, but me as well. What a great experience. I actually miss coming to New Bern once a month to work with you and your staff.

Please use me as a reference to anyone interested with this learning process. Keep up the good work, and I will see ya in the future.
