My wife Kris and I were very impressed with the service we received from Josh and Erin while picking up our wonderful new GSP puppy named Kikka. Very attentive to detail and they were thorough in going over the paperwork and vaccinations, etc. We are looking forward to having her trained at Holden Kennels at six months of age. Beautiful dogs and wonderful people at Holden Kennels.

We picked up Luna LoveGod 2 weeks ago, and at 9 weeks she already sits, stays and responds clearly to her name. Oh yea, and understands the word "no!" We love her, she has a clean bill of health and the Holden's were very helpful with suggestions and ideas to help us acclimate!

As a new client of Holden Kennels, having our first GSP, we have much to learn. Josh and Erin have been very helpful helping our understanding of the process of developing "KODA" and we look forward to the journey ahead because of the partnering approach they are already taking working with us. Our pup is in "puppy intro" this month and we can't wait to watch the progress continue!

Our puppy Fern went through 'Started Dog' training with Josh at Holden Kennels. I can't say enough about how she came out. She is socialized to kids and dogs, obedient, a loves to get out and hunt. She flushed and retrieved like a champ on her first outing for Pheasant. One rooster in particular went down in dense cattails that I never would have been able to find without her. I wouldn't hesitate to take another dog through training @ Holden Kennels.

We purchased our girl Addie from Josh almost three years ago. We were able to go down several times and see her as a pup before she came home and then when she was 6 months old she returned to Holden Kennels for training. She came back a great hunter and a well behaved dog. She is definitely a very important part of the family and we would trust Josh and Erin with her anytime. Thank you both for our wonderful girl and the business you run!
