Querencia Kennels provides a safe and secure environment for your dog while you enjoy all of the wonders and activities of this special area. Each dog has its own 4' x 6' room with an Igloo dog house, shade and water. Group play, where appropriate is supervised. Dogs with special needs are treated separately. No dog is stressed here. This is their "Querencia" - a safe, serene, refuge.

Dog Training
Dog Training

Every dog receives some training while staying at Querencia. Coming when called, going into their kennel and being polite to others are all part of our daily routine.

Basic Training & Obedience

What motivates your dog? We use food drive, retrieve drive, prey drive and affection to motivate and reward your dog to want to come when called, walk quietly at your side and sit next to you patiently waiting for your next command.

Our training philosophy and methods are based upon:

Our training clients all want to tell you how pleased they are with our results.

Short-term boarding and training - $150/day

Basic Obedience

Basic Obedience covers the simple rule of good manners.
Our training includes:

Sit, Stay, Here, Down, and Heal. As well as e-collar conditioning on these commands.

Puppy Training

We work with you and your puppy to resolve problems with House Training, Crate Training, Jumping up, Nipping, Mouthing, Chewing, and Socialization with other dogs and people. It is never too soon to start training your dog.

Comprehensive Training Package

Coming when called, SIT as a position, not temporary, until released. "Don't drag me down the road" when walking on lead. E-collar conditioning on the SIT and HERE commands. Additionally, we teach "kennel" on command, "quiet" for inappropriate barking, how to play tug, introduction to tracking, stimulating the retrieve drive, and introduction to whistle sit and whistle come.

We strongly recommend the Dogtra 1900s e-collar for every owner, for $250.00. Joe Skaggs can purchase the collar for you and will show you how to use it upon pick-up.
