He (Dakota) is a different dog. Very calm when he is in the house and he listens to our commands. When we tell him "No" or "Drop It" the first time he obeys. It is fantastic.....I haven't had to get the wooden spoon out!! ahahah...Again, Thank You. I am so glad he is much calmer and listens when I speak. Have a great day.

Jim Elliott with his Yellow Labrador Female, Daisy, after a duck hunting trip.

"I just returned from our first duck hunt with Daisy. Words can not describe how happy I was to hunt with such a well trained dog. From the first bird down until she picked up the 15th bird she was almost flawless. Your training program works! As she sits at my feet at home we are planning the next hunting trip."

Thank You!

Zues with Lawrence Ringley on the day Zues went home from Retriever Training.

"...I spent a lot of time researching the various Retriever Trainers in Texas and was real nervous about leaving Zeus in an un-familiar place with people that he and I really didn’t know extensively. My concerns diminished the moment that I visited Zion Kennels and met you ..."

Happy Clients with their Retiever after it was trained in our Gundog Retriever Program.
"I have had a number of dogs trained in the past, Eddie was head and shoulders over what I had seen before. I really liked how Eddie tailored his training to each dog. Eddie was very patient with my dog helping her reach her full potential. My kids and I were welcome and encouraged to visit training. Eddie worked with the kids and me, he was very patient with us as well! I highly recommend Zion Kennels to anyone, beginner to expert."

Jim Chapman

Labrador Retriever Handled in an AKC Junior Hunt Test by Eddie Noga, Professional Retriever Trainer.

"Eddie’s patience, knowledge and professionalism are second to none. Eddie’s desire is to get the very best from your dog. It was evident at the recent DFWLRC AKC Sanctioned Hunt test. Zack had not been forced fetched yet, he knew Zack could pass the Junior and Zack did with flying colors. Whether you want to compete, hunt or just obedience for your dog, you can rest assured your dog is receiving the very best in training. Eddie always keeps me up to date about Zack’s progress which is important to me. I highly recommend Eddie and Zion Kennels."

Victor Batton

Yellow Retriever that finished the 2005 AKC Master National Hunt Test.

"I have been active in both the hunt test and field trial circuits for multiple years. Eddie's unrelenting work ethic and impressive knowledge of retrievers helped me successfully compete in AKC Master tests over the last three years. His assistance helped me become one of the very few amateur handlers to pass the 2005 Master National."
