About a year after we purchased our beautiful German shepherd named Casey, we realized she needed some major obedience training. She was extremely well behaved for us at home, but had a hard time socializing with other adults and children. She was aggressive, nervous, and when she bit my 3-year-old cousin, we knew we had to do something.

I remember driving past Jim Evan's kennels each time I visit my parents in Berlin Center and his sign stuck out in my head. A woman at my veterinarian had reassured me that he does a wonderful job with dogs, so I called for more information. We enrolled Casey in six weeks of basic obedience training and it was what saved me from disowning the very dog that I loved so dearly.

After one class, Jim taught us techniques and strategies to use at home and we dedicated ourselves to using his techniques on a daily basis. At the second class, Casey was following commands and progressing well. There was only two other dogs enrolled in the classes and I started looking forward to sharing stories and seeing the others on a weekly basis. Classes were extremely informative and Jim's expertise and talent as a dog trainer are truly amazing. He has so much insight into the nature of dogs and his reasoning and skill are, by far, the most effective and successful training tools that any dog owner can benefit from. Family and friends were astounded by the change in Casey. Soon, people were coming to visit and we were able to take her to family functions around kids and other animals. We are anxious to enroll her in the next phase of training!

While participating in training classes, we discovered that Jim was also a boarding facility. With our hectic lifestyle, we also decided to board Casey with Jim when we go away. We trust that his love for dogs will ensure a safe and caring environment for her when we are gone. I know that my dog is receiving the best care and that is what matters so much to me. Thank you Jim, for treating my dog like one of your own!

I highly recommend Jim Evans for boarding and/or training for your dog. His service goes above and beyond any other services I have experienced. If you want the best for your dog- Evans Kennels will exceed your expectations is every way!
