Jim is a fantastic trainer! Our dog was nearly unmanageable when we dropped her off, and by the time we picked her up she had learned to sit, heel, stay, lie down, come, and is so good at all of it! Jim also has been very patient and thorough in training all of us to deal with the dog in the best way possible. We're so glad we chose Durham Kennels! More...

Jim trained our Dogue de Bordeaux who is very aloof (as he put it). I dont trust anyone else to be around my dog to board him. our big boy is 7 years okd and we had him trained at 8 months. He bow boards our boxer as well when we go out of town. Our dogs are treated so well when we leave then there and I never have any worries about them while they are in there care. More...

Thanks so much for taking such good care of Dax while his "situation" got resolved. You give me hope that there are great folks in the world!

Thank you Jim for helping us with Dax. Durham Kennels kept a rescue dog for us when an adopter dumped him until we could arrange transport. A wonderful owner and place!

I am so grateful to Mr. Durham for helping with our dog Paisley. Our girl had a nickname of "Crazy Paisley" for a reason, and anyone who came to our home, or walked down the street, knew why that was her nickname. Unfortunately,!she had some issues that we could no longer ignore, and reached out for help. Mr. Durham listened to our situation, and we had Paisley in his in kennel training within 2 days. We noticed an immediate difference when we picked her up, and the follow up classes ensured we would continue the amazing transformation and progression of our Paisley... I am so very grateful for what Mr. Durham has done with our girl, and I ABSOLUTELY recommend him to anyone who is looking into training. He is WONDERFUL and I can't say enough about how he helped.

Truly a dog whisperer, did wonders with my totally insane beagle/Aussie mix when he was about 2 years old. Got a different dog back than I dropped off! 9 years later and Riley is the most amazing gentle well behaved guy you could ask for. Totally recommend Jim who truly loves dogs and the people who love them! More...

Jim is absolutely the best trainer you can get for your dog. Wouldn't trust mine with anyone. His compassion and care are unsurpassed. He trained my German shepherd. And me and my husband. I was amazed at the results. It made such a difference. I have had him kennel my other dogs when I had to go on business trips. Wouldn't use any other. Can't give him enough praise. Just know that he is the best. More...

We recommend this kennel. They took fabulous care of our "timid" dog Karma, for four days, at a super reasonable price. We will be taking her there again. Awesome place and people.

They kept our dog/child for 4 days. We couldn't be happier. The property and kennels are spotless. The owners are very professional and personable with not only us, but our 4 legged child. We will be using Durham Kennels again. More...

After wasting both time and money at a local pet-store training facility and then an expensive in-home trainer who lost interest in both our dog and ourselves, we learned about Jim Durham who saved the day and our sanity. Our Lab-Coonhound mix was both independent and strong-willed; a real challenge for two senior citizens. Jim's approach and professional efforts have turned our "problem-child" into a welcome addition to our family. He is an expert and knows how to train both the dog and the owners, which is a vital part of the program. On a scale of 1-10, he gets an 11. More...

I could not be happier with my experience at Durham kennels. Jim is a true professional. It is readily obvious that Jim cares about the dogs. Cooper came to Jim at six months old. He completely transformed him and is now rock solid on obedience. Thank you, Jim! More...

Jim has trained three of our dogs, AND my wife and myself, with excellent results. Working with Jim has been a great pleasure over the last 10 years and we continually get comments about how well behaved our pooches are. We highly recommend Durham Kennels for training or boarding and will continue to come here for the personal service and amazing results. More...
