Dog Training

Good approach to training,very knowledgeable leader

15 May 2021

I'm very happy I brought my 1 year old in for training at VonMiller Kennels. Jeffrey Miller trained my little ladies' man Ben G to learn multiple commands, coming when he hears his name from a distance & sitting in place too. I was very impressed & wowed to see Ben G learning so quickly from the illustrative training lessons. Jeffrey assured me I have a confident boy able to learn with the help of his great training, treat + collar advice & patience. Before training.. Ben G wouldn't back off the ladies if I called his name with a foghorn or even sit for more than half of a second. The lessons with the help of a knowledgeable, confident voice in an organized setting & answers to all my annoying questions helped entirely. Ben G now comes when I call his name and even sits for his little pictures until I say "& let's go!"  Thanks a trillion!From Ben G&Jackie More...

My teenager applied for a job at the kennel. Mr Von called to offer my child a job and he wanted my child to come in and do a training work day. He said to come in on a Saturday night from 7-10 p.m., and they close at 6 p.m What? He was also speaking VERY inappropriately and unprofessionally! Do NOT let your teenager work there, especially alone. My child got the creeps from this guy!  Beware! More...

Our 4 year old German Shepherd, Sherman did a 6 week board-and-train here with Jeff and WOW were we impressed with what he was able to accomplish during that time! Sherman had been having trouble with other dogs, anxiety that was at times uncontrollable, and fear and anxiety around water. After less than 2 weeks, Jeff had him relaxed right next to another German Shepherd who also had issued being calm around other dogs and jumping in the lake to swim out to me. We were SHOCKED at the progress he had made in such a short period of time. Sherman has been home with us for a little over a week now and we have been able to maintain his skills with Jeff's instructions and Sherman is so much happier! We can walk by other dogs on the street and he barely pays them any mind where as perviously he would have knocked us over.We have had several other trainers work with Sherman and no one has come close to achieving the success that Jeff has. His gentle approach to training makes your dog fall in love with him and actually WANT to please him/you rather than fear based training.Thank you Jeff for everything!!! More...

Jeff was very patient and good with both our dogs. They are already behaving better.

Our family decided to get a rottweiler puppy, with that decision also came the decision that we would send the pup off to training. This was important to us for many reasons, but our 2 young kids (3 & 9) as well as ourselves having control of this soon to be big guy was one of the top reasons!We welcomed Titan to our family in Aug 2019, and immediately began researching various trainers. We were prepared to send Titan as far as we needed to for the right fit. To our surprise we found Jeff Miller who was just a 15min drive from us. We went to meet Jeff and had an instant comfort upon walking onto his property and meeting him.You could instantly feel the true love he has for the dogs, and took so much time evaluating Titan to determine if he would be a great fit for Titan and vice-versa. Right there we just knew he and his team would be amazing! A few weeks later space opened up and Titan was welcomed into his facility and stayed for about 6wks. Jeff advised that I (the wife/Mom) would be the best family member to come in weekly to work one-on-one with Titan and himself. He explained I was the best fit because I would be home with him more, and Titan needed to see me as the pack leader.2-3wks into training I began going to Jeff's facility 1-3 times per week to work with him, observe them, and learn everything I needed to know so that we could apply the training at home.The time Jeff puts into not only your dog, but you as the human is incredible. He is one of a kind!Training was amazing, and we continue to work hard at home implementing all Titan was taught. We have an awesome dog who just turned a year that we can walk around the block with no pulling. He stays by our side, lays down when a dog walks past without even one bark.Jeff is always checking in with us, and is always a phone call away for any question or thought that comes up.The price you pay is beyond worth not only the initial training, but the life-long support you will get from Jeff!

Hands down the best breeding and training facility around. Jeff Miller is very passionate and knowledgeable about what he does. He's transparent about the health and behavior of his dogs, their working/breeding history, his training methods, and everything else. Not only was I impressed with his dogs, but also with his integrity. He doesn't sacrifice their health or temperament for superficial traits like so many other breeders do. He's doesn't breed dogs to "show and sell", he breeds them for purpose. Whether it's performing in the field as protection dogs, service dogs, or just being the perfect family guardian, his dogs can do it all.The GSD pup we got from him almost a year ago has been so wonderful, and our family couldn't be happier. He has high drive, but not hyperactivity. He's eager to please and easy to train. He's alert but not aggressive or fearful. He's loving but not bratty. He LOVES to play, and loves to be engaged with his humans. In short, he's everything you want in a family dog. Gorgeous and healthy to! Jeff has been a fantastic resource along the way, and he's very quick to respond with anything we need help with. It's wonderful to have a breeder/trainer that wants to be engaged with owners in the long-run, not just to make a quick buck. We look forward to many more years of fun and affection from our furry guardian.What else can I say? Great facility, great owner, great services, great dogs. Definitely recommend for any reason.
