Testimonials

Cappel Canine is a rare find in the dog training world. Butch Cappel can teach a dog to fry chicken. He is the best trainer and dog behaviorist that I have had the pleasure of meeting and helping me with my dogs. It simply doesn’t get any better. Cappel canine is a great facility for training and boarding and I am happy that I found these guys. On top of all that they treat their clients like family. Thanks for all that you do for me and my pups.

Butch is a wizard with dogs. He has a simple, no BS method, (unlike a lot of dog trainers), and it works. What’s more, he genuinely cares about all the animals in his care. There’s quite a few dogs living there that have been dumped in his lap, and Butch makes sure they have a place to stay and food to eat until they find a home. For obedience or protection, there’s nobody better. He had my 3 year old, never been trained, former fighting dog sitting, coming, and broke him of his jumping habit, all in one visit.

Butch is great! He really cares about the dogs and remembers them and their personalities even though we only board them a few times a year. The dogs are always healthy and happy when we pick them up (sometimes they even GAIN a little weight). And for all that, they charge a VERY reasonable rate! You will not find a better price OR higher quality care for your dogs anywhere! I wish I could give them more stars!

Butch and Stan are wonderful trainers. We have learned so much and our dog is now a pleasure to be around. I’ve decided to take the leap and get a Western Shepherd puppy so I can continue to train! If you will take the time to just listen, follow instructions, and practice you will be thrilled with your dog.

Butch and his team are very knowledgeable about all aspects of dogs and treat them like they are his own. Our puppy learned so much in her first visit and we’ll be sure to use them again for both boarding and training!

Great experience!

Who says you can’t teach old dogs new tricks? Butch and his staff were very professional and knowledgeable when dealing with my eight year old pit mix. I look forward to doing business with Butch again in the future.
