We cannot speak highly enough of Brett and the work he has done with our two pups!!! Because of him, they get to do so much more!!! Nellie (husky/golden retriever mix) was trained by him about three years ago and we just picked up Herman (chocolate lab) up today!

We absolutely love Sorensons Kennels! My family has had multiple dogs stay and be trained here over the years, and we love how they are treated like family. We recommend them to all of our family and friends with dogs!

We have had puppies from Sorenson and done boarding and training with them since 2002. They have always been wonderful. Most recently we worked with Max and he trained one of our two 7 month old puppies. Max did an awesome job. Our sweet pup is doing so well with his obedience, manners, and even off leash training. We are very impressed. We will continue to use and recommend Sorenson.

Emily did an amazing job training our Whitney! She did a great job at communicating with us during her four weeks of training. Whitney is a completely different pup and it was well worth the time and money!
