Customers and what they are saying

"We have been taking our dogs to Animal Resorts for training since 2000 when we purchased our first dog, Kira, there. We've since purchased two more wonderful dogs from Animal Resorts, Izzy and Jax, and with David's knowledgeable advice and able assistance they have become fine companions and working dogs that have gone on to win many awards. David is not just our dogs breeder and trainer, but has become our personal friend as well. The entire Harris family is extremely knowledgeable, helpful, and friendly. We couldn't ask for a better place or better people to trust with our dogs or count as our friends.


My family purchased our golden retriever, Hobbes, from Animal Resorts in 1996. We participated in the puppy obedience programs. With guidance and support from David, Hobbes received his Companion Dog (CD) certificate at 11 months of age with a first place performance in his and my very first competition. The staff at Animal Resorts showed us the right way to develop our dog into a wonderful companion.


As a result, Hobbes enjoys the extra freedom to travel with us and spend quality time "off lead", only possible with a trained dog. I have watched David, and his staff treat all the dogs in their care in a humane way with the goal of making them worthy of being called "True Companions". Animal Resorts will be our first stop when my family is ready for a new canine companion.


"Suffice it to say that I recommend you guys to everyone I know who has a dog. I really like the ongoing relationship you keep with my dogs, going on 5 years now. Keep up the good work. Jack Russell & Australian Cattle Dog."

"Seven Years Ago at a very difficult time in my life I found myself needing a highly trained protection dog. I found the ad for Canine Services and placed the call. Upon hearing of my situation I was told about several dogs they had for sale that would fit my needs. Due to not being able to get to Frankfort that day, yet desperately needing something to give me peace-of-mind, they had one of their trainers bring a dog (CJ, a two year old personal protection trained German Shepherd) to my home in Lexington. I ended up buying this dog and have never regretted it. In fact over the years I have purchased two more trained Shepherds as well as referring numerous friends that have also purchased dogs from them. Included in the purchase price of this highly trained dog were classes for me to learn how to handle this type of dog. We started attending obedience classes that David held at a local park during the week and also attended personal protection classes on the weekend in Frankfort. I have been very thankful and impressed with the level of training that not only CJ's received but that I have received as well. In fact our training has enabled CJ to earn her CD title, but not just earn, we came in first 3 out of 5 times, once scoring a 196 1/2 out of a possible 200! CJ and I have also done numerous demo days and have been featured on the six o'clock news in a special report that Fox ran on how women today can protect themselves. Thus proving how stable and versatile dogs purchased from CSU are.

Over the years CJ and I have moved, first to NC and now to SC, however, we still travel to KY at least once a year to train with CSU. And knowing that age is creeping up on CJ I realize it is time to buy another sport/personal protection dog (my other dogs are purely for home protection). And the only place that I would consider buying any dog is Canine Services because I know that David will sell me a dog that will be mentally stable, trained exactly to my specifications, not to tough for me to handle, and that somebody from CSU will be available should I ever need them."


"David Harris is without a doubt the most talented, hard-working, and gifted trainer I know. He is dedicated in educating, training, and serving their customers. I have come to rely on their friendship and service in enhancing my relations with the canine kingdom and in particular my dog Obi. In choosing Canine Services Unlimited you will receive value, dedication, and training which emphasize positive reinforcement."
