Today was a good day after all of Josh's hard work Gunner got his final junior hunt test pass. I look forward to my next challenge with Gunner and Josh!

I got my Ivory lab Latoka from Josh and had her trained until 4 months as I was graduating from school and couldn't get up there in time. I could not be more pleased with her and that is a direct reflection of the respect Josh has for his dogs and for training bird dogs. Being in the military, I am at the mercy of uncle Sam for living locations. Toka and I got stationed at Los Angeles air force base which clearly isn't hunting paradise. She is very flexible and is an excellent best friend along with incredible instincts. We don't get to shoot as much as we would like but we still make due. Will most certainly look to get my future dogs an training done at Wild Wind.

When we first contacted Josh, he was very responsive and accommodating to our questions. Being first time dog buyers (but not dog owners) we were unsure how the process worked and what to look for. Josh provided all the necessary information and walked us through what we needed to do. We asked Josh to choose a pup for us from his most recent yellow lab litter. We couldn't be happier with our 'Lucy'. She was house trained with the first few weeks and has been very responsive to the basic obedience tasks we've been working on (sit, down, fetch, etc.). Over the last few months she has become a staple for our family and we're proud to show her off to everyone we know. Up at the cabin she has proven her true lab abilities in the water and jumping off the dock and at home, where she doubles as a great family dog. I would highly recommend dogs from Wild Wind's and will definitely be contacting Josh when we are ready for another pup. Thanks again Josh!

We sent our 1 year old GSP to Wild Winds for a 4 week obidence and hunting trinaing course. When we dropped her off Josh made sure to tell us everything that he was planning to do and made sure we were comfortable with everything before we left. we were able to check up on her and he kept us posted on her progress. My husband was able to go up 2 weeks into training to work with her. He could already see progress. The day we picked her up was so amazing! She was our dog but better!!! She listened so well and you could tell see was proud of herself. When we got her home I was nervous that all the training would go out the window but it hasn't. We work with her everynight and she just loves it! I think that Josh is an excellent trainer and I know that he took good care of her. You can really tell that he loves to do this for a living. We plan on bringing our dog back every summer for a 2 week refresher course. Thanks Josh for making our dog even more amazing!!!!!

Hi, my name is Frankie and I am a German Short-haired Pointer. I was born at Wild Wind, and was the runt of the litter. I can't seem to see out of my right eye, but that's OK because my new mom & pop love me just the same. They take me for long walks, play with me and buy me treats. My vet loves me very much too. I've grown big and strong thanks to the loving care mom & pop give me. My brother Hunter is at my Auntie's and we get to play together every now and then=) I am a very happy healthy pup!

Thank You to Josh at JEKR Kennels!!!! The GSP puppy i purchased is wonderful!! Kittson is very happy and healthy!!
Her personality is excellent, she is very outgoing!! She is good with the kids and gets along good with our Lab.
She is always running around with her nose to the ground. At 16 weeks she is showing great potential for becoming a wonderful hunting partner!! She is retriving a tennis ball to hand.
With the warmer weather im excited to work with her and watch her grow!!! She is a wonderful addition to our family!!!!!
Thank You!!!!

My girlfriend & I were looking for a dog that would't trigger her allergies, that I could take hunting & ultimatly be a good companion. We traveled from Milwaukee to pick up, Hunter, our GSP, in January: we couldn't be happier, it was worth the drive. While there, we were introduced to one of the puppies with a cloudy eye; Josh wanted to see the puppy, Frankie, go to a good home so we decided to take him for my girlfriends parents. He's doing great & her parents are more than pleased with how well he's doing. Hunter's a fast learner & the ideal dog for us; first time dog owners. Josh was very knowledgeable about hunting, pointers & had great training tips. I would definitely buy another dog from Josh.

We got our female from Josh February 27, 2011. She is way more than we ever expected. She has proven to be the smartest dog we've had. She responded to her name within 10 days and now responds to other commands and she's only 9 weeks old. She catches on so fast it's amazing. Every conversation Josh has taken as much time as we need to answer all our questions. He has been very open with all his experience in training. I would recommend Josh and his dogs to everyone I know.

We found out about JEKR Kennels from a friend and contacted Josh right away. We had such a good experience, that we almost bought 2 pups! We got our ivory/yellow lab in June 2010 and we couldn't be happier with him! He is smart, playful, loves affection and is obedient all in the same dog! We have also taken our dog to Josh for training and for boarding. We feel very comfortable going out of town knowing that our dogs are in good hands! You can tell from one conversation with Josh, that he knows what he is doing and loves what he is doing! We have received a lot of great advice and tips! We would recommend JEKR Kennels to anyone!!!
