Jimmy was an amazing trainer for our mini boxer Laila! When she first came to him, she wouldn’t walk on a leash at all and by the end of the first day she was walking right by my side. Jimmy was great at explaining everything to me each time so that I could continue to train her at home. I highly recommend him as a trainer and will be telling all my friends with puppies about him!

They are my life savers! I have a multi poodle and she is my first pet in my whole life, so I don’t have any experience, so that I lost lots of money by hiring private instructor that came to my home and doing nothing, just giving lots of treat to my poppy! But after all I have found CHK, and consulting with Francine and coaching by Jimmy for 3 weeks constantly gave me the big relief and helped a lot and also I’m going to to have E-collar session with Jimmy too.By the way they are the best in grooming, and another thing that I love about them is that they really love what they do and have passionate about it.

Jimmy did a great job of socializing, Koda (my 18 month chocolate lab), and teaching her the basics in three weeks. Koda is now working on retrieval training (coming when called). Jimmy has helped “train me” on how to train Koda, This has been a very positive experience. More...

We had the best experience with our new puppy! Not only did we get him from Carriage Hill Kennels, but the training was amazing! When we first brought him home as a new pup, he was happy and wild. But wild in an uncontrollable way. Once he went through the three week training program, he was still the happy puppy, but manageable and obedient. Jimmy our trainer gave us excellent training as well. He showed us exactly how to mimic the three weeks so that our Charlie didn’t fall backwards. It’s always a learning curve with a new pup. Even for us, who had a 5 yr old dog already at home. But the examples were easy to follow and the reasoning behind it made perfect sense.We look forward to continuing training as Charlie gets older so he can be the best of the best! It’s a commitment to a lifelong companion. Thank you Carriage Hill and Jimmy for your good care, kindness and expertise with our newest family member. More...

We bought our Goldendoodle from Carriage Hill 2 years ago. We thought about training for a long time to help his jumping, pulling, taking food off the counter etc. ..We kept hoping he would outgrow it, but when we got our 2nd Goldendoodle, he got worse and was now growling at us. I read the reviews on Jimmy and made the decision to take him to the 3 week class. The drive was an hour each way, but I knew this family owned facility would understand our Doodle. Jimmy was confident, knowledgable and knew exactly what to do with him. Dexter received intensive one-on-one daily training during his stay without treats, which I never knew was possible. Jimmy was in constant contact with us to answer questions and send us pictures and videos. He also trained us how to correct all of his negative behavior at home. After week 1 (5 days) we were able to walk Dexter on a leash next to us instead of pulling. What a relief! He really wanted to learn and just needed some discipline. Jimmy stresses the fact that if we don't do our part training at home, the dog won't either. We are committed to using the new skills so we are all happier, including Dexter! He loved and respected Jimmy and he is now respecting us too. We found this program extremely effective and well worth it. It's core principles are deeply imbedded in our dog and to us. Thank you Jimmy! More...

Just finished the 3-week obedience training with our one-year-old Lab. Jimmy did a terrific job with her. She’s now our first Lab who knows “Heel” and doesn’t pull me down the street on walks. Jimmy is patient and helps you understand why he does something and makes sure you know how to do it too. Getting the video of your training session is invaluable. He makes it seem easy -the mark of a real pro. More...

My family had a much needed educational experience with Jimmy as our puppy, Cam's, trainer. We are 1st time dog owners and we were unaware of how to get a handle and how to discipline our very active puppy. Cam stayed at Carriage Hill and was trained by Jimmy for 3 weeks. During that time Cam learned basic commands as well as how to be disciplined when he displayed bad behavior. Jimmy gave us our own training session to teach us how to enforce the training Cam received. Jimmy is an exceptional trainer for dogs and an exceptional teacher for dogs' owners. He understands dogs' behavior and understands how to convey his training methods to the dogs' owners. More...

Jimmy at Carriage Hill was great with our Australian Shepherd puppy. She’s 12 weeks old and can sit and come to her name. Jimmy taught us how to stop her puppy biting too. We will definitely bring her back when she’s a little older to teach her how to properly walk on a leash. Great basic puppy training. Highly recommended! More...

We searched for a safe environment to board our 7 month old male intact Akita. Carriage Hill was optimal solution. Family owned kennel around for generations. They treated our puppy like one of their own dogs. Kennels are clean and air conditioned. We opted for 3 week training to coincide with boarding. Upon returning not only is our furry family member safe, recently bathed but also walking on lead and taking correction. Grateful to have Carriage Hill, and will be using for future boarding needs.

We've not had a puppy for many years. We decided to get a doggie and it's been the best choice. However, our new puppy is anything but easy. I was at my wit's end with our new bundle of joy. I was referred to Carriage Hills and it was the best decision made. Jimmy our trainer has shown us there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Our pup was literally the worse dog in the neighborhood, dog park and beaches. Now we can actually have a good time when out. We will continue training to reinforce what was learned. I highly recommend Jimmy and Carriage Hills for dog training. More...

Jimmy and Carriage Hill have gone above and Beyond our expectations with the training of our pup, Molly. Jimmy has taken the time to show me what I need to do and always makes sure I understand. He has a true passion for what he does and puts in the time and dedication necessary to successfully train our pup and other more difficult dogs. The folks running the kennel have always been good to our older dog that passed away in November and to our young puppy now. They treat them and us like family. More...

Our dog Riley is 2 1/2 and was exhibiting some Protection Aggression and we really didn't know how to handle the situation. My vet suggested Jimmy Cocallas could help us. We enrolled Riley in the 7 week program where he would be working with Jimmy one day a week. Of course WE needed as much training as Riley did maybe more. After each session, we met with Jimmy to observe what he had worked on and showed us how to reinforce it at home. The results have been amazing for Riley and us. We would highly recommend Jimmey. If you simply need basic or advanced training, or if there is a problem with behavior, Jimmy is your guy!!! Jean, Hank and Riley More...

We have been immensely rewarded in multiple ways through the years with Carriage Hill Kennels.As breeders, these folks flat-out know what they are doing in breeding dogs for temperament. Our first dog from C.H.- Penny, is a Labradoodle, and just a wonderful, gentle, loving soul. (we knew this already but when a local dog walking service had a tenured walker specifically save Penny for his last day's walk and write comments on our white board at home that our dog was the highlight of his day, it made our hearts swell.) Our second dog Goldie, is a Goldendoodle, that just joined our family back in March and is also an amazing, loving, and smart puppy.We are at the tail-end of our dog obedience training now with Goldie at C.H. and have been working with their Lead Trainer, Jimmy Cocallas. This guy is nothing short of amazing! (Truly, the Dog Whisperer!)We have been reinforcing his training techniques at home and have seen consistent and steady improvements each week with Goldie. If you are looking for just a canned, vanilla obedience training class for your dog, do not even think of looking this dude up. If you want someone that will get to know both you (your training style, weekly time commitments, etc.) as well as your individual dog-based upon their unique personality, proclivity by breed, etc., this is the guy you need! (Yeah-he's that good!) I could tell immediately, that this guy is into his training. He's passionate about it and it shows. He tapes his training session with you, so you have a resource to use throughout the week (very helpful) and is willing to help you work through individual behaviors with you each week. Plainly put, he is an invaluable resource!Thank you Jimmy. You Da Dog Man! :) More...
