VERY PROFESSIONAL and THEY HAVE A GREAT HEART AND LOVE FOR DOGS
Today was our first session and I am VERY impressed with how much Oakley learned! So excited to watch him progress over the next six weeks!!
Very knowledgeable group of people with excellent services. One of the most few dedicated people in the country. Have received services for over 4 yrs. now and one of the best experiences ever..
Would give 6 stars if possible! Was very pleased with VanBuren Shepherds. I have had 4 different trainers and by far he is the most knowledgeable and very patient. Highly recommend!
Fabulous. I’ve tried dog training with 2 other places in years past. Jason is by far the BEST! Our vet recommended VanBuren Shepherds and I’m sure glad he did.
Great training plan to do more training once our baby gets old enough to train Axel! If you want a great dog that’s great with kids and loyal! He’s your guy!
Not only a great place to get various training, but the pups produced are outstanding, excellent breeder. We love our Sofie, she has a great personality. She wants to learn and at 7 months old has a real good on/off switch.We couldn’t be happier, and when we are ready for our next gsd this is where we will be going.
It was so much fun and Rocky and me learned a lot . Thank you!!
Very patient with humans and dogs. Zeke is learning a lot!
VanBuren Shepherds have been so helpful in educating us on obtaining the right temperament of German Shepherd for our needs. We are excited to get one of their pups soon. I highly recommend this company to anyone wanting a high quality German Shepherd and those seeking training for their fur baby!
Van Buren Shepherds is my go to trainer. There isn’t anyone better in the area, and I’ve been working with dogs a long time. He’s honest and trust worthy. I would refer anyone 100 times over.
Our Chocolate Lab “Brutus” just rocked his first AKC puppy training class with Jason of VanBuren Shepherds! He came to school as a jumping, pulling, and ill mannered student. By the end, he was leading the class and showing others how it’s done! VanBuren training school is great!
Brutus is a sweet doggie with no social skills when he arrived and by the time we left you just wouldn’t believe the change in him in one lesson.
We love him and want the best for him. We both would highly recommend VanBuren training for your dog.
After 1+ years I had to say goodbye to my best friend and loyal, imported GSD, Rowdy which I owned since 12 weeks of age. It was a very painful experience after training daily, bonding, long hikes and shared meals. But Rowdy had weak nerves and couldn’t process real from perceived threats. After the 3rd serious incident of biting, I returned Rowdy, under contract and without refund, to the breeder/importer. While looking for answers I met Jason Hawkins who took the time and effort to counsel me at length without expense. Jason helped me to see that this time it wasn’t the trainers (me) fault but genetics. VanBuren Shepherds became the best choice for me in selecting a new puppy. Jason guaranteed their puppies would not have problem issues due to their diligence in vetting lineage, and of course, Jason’s experience in evaluating puppies. I couldn’t believe how hard it was for me to replace a dog I loved so much. After 7 months I couldn’t be happier with the puppy Jason provided. I hope to send photos regularly and report on MoeJoe’s development. Thanks again Jason and VanBuren Shepherds!
I have three GSDs (one from Jason’s litters) and my wife and I have been extremely impressed with Jason’s knowledge and love for training and breeding. Jason is a living “google” for any information about training. He is extremely thorough when it comes to breeding, and he is completely transparent about breeding, training, and boarding. Can’t recommend Jason and Vanburen shepherds enough.
We have only had our pup for a few days and he is just what we were looking for. A very knowledgeable owner with very high quality dogs. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for top notch German Shepherds.
I just got Thor’s (9 month old GS) star puppy and canine good citizen in the mail today. I’m very happy and would recommend Vanburen Shepherds 100% to anyone.
