Joe was the 4th trainer I've taken my Vizsla Rooster to. The others made lots of promises and then washed him out as being to soft wasn't sure what they were talking about as he is my first dog. Joe took me under his wing and explained everything he does and was going to do with Rooster. He allowed me to come out to the kennel and watch and as the training went on help and start to take over the reins with Rooster. I'm very happy and was even able to harvest my first pheasant over Rooster this last weekend all thanks to Joe.

Joe is a sort of man that you feel comfortable handing over your best friend. Not only did Joe(PSR Kennels) make Dexter a superstar, working with Joe was my first experience with a trainer he also made it a lot less scary by "training" me to. I can hear him laughing at me about that last line.
Joe worked on wing to shoot and steady with Dex and some other small other stuff.
The results are in, Dex and I went out on are own to find some scratch birds in some very thick brush and he worked like a CHAMP, remembering everything that he was taught, he did a lot better job than I did. I just hope that Dex will forgive all of my missteps alone the way. I'm still learning everyday.

Joe Thank you for everything!

I have known Joe for over a year. I talked with him almost weekly looking for a gun dog that would suit me needs. Thanks to all his help and advise I now am a proud owner of Blaze, a German Shorthaired Pointer pup. Blaze recently spent four weeks at PSR Kennels under Joe's supervision and training. Blaze is currently 4-1/2 months old and thanks to Joe, is on the path to becoming an excellent gun dog. When I dropped Blaze off he was just a puppy, now he is a focused, driven, & an obedient gun dog. I would recommend PSR kennels for anyone looking for excellent care and training for their dog.

Took my Lab Boomer to Joe at PSR Kennels early this summer. Boomer is my not my first hunting dog but is my first lab I wasn't sure how to go about a few things and get him started. Joe fixed us right up and got us to a place in the training where I feel comfortable taking over would highly recommend anyone going to Joe.

Joe Plote - The Dog Whisperer. I first met Joe when he was teaching a puppy obedience class at the Pet Smart and I enrolled my 6 month old rescue Brittany in for classes. It was obvious from the beginning that Joe has a special way with dogs. Joe recognized natural talents in Lucy as a hunter and agreed to take her on as a project. Lucy is a total family dog, so Joe worked with me differently than normal, I bring Lucy to him once or twice a week for an hour and he teaches me as he teaches her. After 1 year, my long-tailed Brit went 4 for 4 in her first weekend of hunt tests and earned her Junior Hunter title. Since then we have worked at getting her finished and ready for next years Masters. Lucy has taken pretty quickly to everything from holding point to honoring, but she didn't like to retrieve. Several months Joe patiently tried different techniques and we rejoiced at every small break through. Yesterday we went out on an actual hunt to see how she would do. It was perfect she held steady through everything including a double flush and aggressively searched for and retrieved every downed bird like she had been doing it all her life. If you are looking for a trainer who can bring out the very best in your dog, Joe is your man.

Joe has done a great job working with my very sweet but soft and gun shy english setter "Kate". He has been very in tune to getting her to a good and happy place in the field without rushing her to try and impress. With his work she hunted by my side this fall forthe first time! We still have lots of work with her but with Joes help she has improved by leaps and bounds and now loves the field! Well done Joe! Cant wait to get her back to you this spring!

I recently got my year old springer spaniel back from Joe he had her for 2 months to get her ready for this upcoming season and i couldn't be happier with what he has done with her. she quarters in range retrieves to hand on land and water sits on the flush and much more. Just wanted to say thanks Joe and To anyone else who has a dog that they want trained or wants a dog go to Joe.

I had Joe train my male Brittany trigger the summer and early fall of 09' and i couldn't be any happier , i told him what i wanted out of my dog and he made it happen. I'm very pleased with Joe and his work he kept me up to date the whole time sent pics and i was able to come and sit in on some of the training sessions. I would refer anyone to Joe. Give him a call you won't be disappointed.

We purchased our first Britanny from Joe in July and she a wonderful puppy. She is now eight months old, very smart, very obidient, great with the kids, and an absolutely perfect family dog. While I am not a hunter, I have found her to be easily trainable and it is clear she has hunting instincts (anytime she sees a bird, she locks onto it). I would highly recommend any Brittany from Jill's future liters.

I purchased my dog from Joe about 6 weeks ago and my fiancee and I could not have asked for a better dog. He has the best temperament and is very smart. Although we will not be using him to do much hunting, it is not hard to tell he has it in his blood! We can already tell he will be a great family dog. I would refer anyone looking for a great hunting dog or companion to Joe.
