As always Patriot Dog Training to the rescue. Without Benito, Erica, and the team I’d be lost. Not only is their training top notch but it’s the only place I trust to babysit my dogs when I need a hand. Best facility I have EVER worked with.

Thank you for a great first time boarding experience. Gigi returned home happy and excited so I know her stay with you was positive. I worried about my sweet rescue being stressed and nervous. I look forward to future stays!

Board and train can be explained in one word: WOW. It is expensive, but it is worth every penny. I am amazed at how well my dog came back. I was extremely nervous about leaving him, but they helped alleviate all my concerns. Very professional, knowledgeable, and responsive. Erica and their trainers I met were amazing. Definitely recommend.

This review is in two parts. One for Patriot Dog Training the Second for Patriot boarding. In regards to Dog training Patriot will train your dog to sit, down, heel and place. They will also work with your dog to get rid of bad or annoying habits. Now the details, they do this through continuous repetition. That is a good thing… somewhat( continue reading and you will understand why I say somewhat.), they also use prong collars and e-collars for correcting the dog and provide a food reward. This is where you as an owner need to decide if this is acceptable. As food rewards also typically means your dog will not receive their typical food ration as treats are provided as a reward for a dog complying with verbal commands and the prong collar and e-collar re-enforce that bad behavior is not tolerated. I would rate the dog training as a 3-4 star. Now the Dog boarding.. we boarded our dog twice. We had thought that they did a great job training him and were under the impression he would be comfortable returning. When we left him at Patriot he had a long flowing tail and it was graceful to see him catch tennis balls or frisbees. When we had picked him up, there were large gaps of hair missing and it did not resemble the tail he had. When we asked if anything happened, the staff said there had been no altercations with any of the other animals and it might have been due to stress. Our dogs tail hair did grow back and we thought it might have been caused by anxiety and the soap that was left in his fur. A few months later we returned to board him again. I should have trusted my instincts, our dog was visibly upset and shaking with his tail between his legs when we were in the parking lot and it progressed as we entered the lobby. When we returned the staff was blaring music with large amounts of base and treble that you could hear from the parking lot and probably from the street. The dogs were barking from their crates and the music seemed to intensify. We called and no one answered, I can only guess that the music may have played a part. I then knocked on the door and the music quickly was turned down to what would pass as a normal volume. Our dog was then quickly brought to us and smelt of urine and feces. We paid the boarding fee in full and left to give our dog a proper bath. I’m not asking for a refund, I’m not asking for any fees to be returned. I’m only writing this to share my experience and provide an explanation as to why Patriot Dog Training and Boarding went from a potential 4 star review to a two star review.

I could not say enough great things! This was our first time staying and I received photos and email updates on my pup! He was exhausted when he arrived home Sunday evening, so I know he had a great time! Staff are caring and compassionate!

We are more than thankful for Benito, Erica, and the whole team at Patriot Dog Training. We were over the moon for the time and love that was poured into our two puppies. The picture/video updates kept us up to date on everything they are doing daily. If you are looking anywhere else to train your pup, that’s your first mistake. Look no further, because there isn’t anyone that does it like this family. We have gained life long friends with Patriot Dog Training, and Ella and Gus Gus love y’all and can’t wait to visit in the future! Thank you again for your passion for training our four legged family members and we wish you nothing, but the best going forward.

Our 8 month old Spinone Italiano, Gus, completed his 5 week training course last week. He came home a different dog. Still sweet as can be but now he actually listens and obeys. He was timid, more like frightened, around cars....horrible on walks...let the smallest distraction cause great stress. An example of his progress......took him to Boerne this morning for a long walk and breakfast at the Boerne Grill. He was fabulous!! Listened and followed every command with no hesitation. Completely ignored cars. Politely sit with no attempt at jumping when greeted by probably 30 adults and kids. He had distractions galore....ignored them and had a really great time. We work with him 20 minutes or so 5 times a day as instructed by the folks at Patriot to continue the foundation established in the training. It's critical to stay with the program so there's no lapse in his progress Can't say enough about the professionalism of Erica, Benny and the entire staff at Patriot. They really care about the dogs they train and board. Gus is the perfect example that their system works. Best investment we've ever made!

Efficient and professional staff and process. I had a few questions on how things went and was immediately contacted by a staff member who went over details of my dog's stay.

I am so impressed with Patriot Dog Training! My lab puppy thrived in their care. Having a puppy can be so overwhelming, but Patriot has made our lives so much easier. Our puppy is beautifully trained and we couldn’t be more grateful.

They return phone calls in a timely manner knowing they are working with dogs and cannot just drop everything to answer phone.

We entrust our two border collies/children to Patriot dog training every week while I undergo chemotherapy at MDAnderson in Houston. Having to go through breast cancer treatment is stressful as is, then having to be separated from our kiddos every week makes it even more stressful. However, my husband and I feel so fortunate that we found a caring and trust worthy team in Erica, Benito, Taylor and crew to care for Sally and Chance while we are away. Knowing they are in great care brings me peace of mind while I focus on my battle with cancer and of course Sally and Chance, especially Chance can’t wait to get in the car for some Patriot time.

I take my dog Frito here for Doggie Daycare and am always very pleased. He gets excited when I drive up and can't wait to go in!!

The staff was all very welcoming and informative. They spent several weeks training my dog Major before I got to meet him which helped tremendously. They let me train with them so I was prepared for when I was alone and I wouldn’t be progressing the way I am if it weren’t for that extra training time with them. To top everything off, they even got a driver to drive me and my dog back to Colorado Springs. It was all around terrific experience and I would definitely recommend them to everyone. Thank you again very much to all the staff.

We first began using Patriots For Doggy Day care for our golden retriever pup, Charley. We were impressed first by the cleanliness of the facility then by the structure of our pup’s day and last but certainly not least by the staff! Every single person we encountered from Benito to Erica to the rest of the staff were friendly, kind and very engaged with the dogs in their care. Their passion for what they do is evident! Several months later we decided to enroll Charley in one of the training packages offered. Our Charley is a great pup but we knew he needed more training than we were capable of giving him. We just picked Charley up yesterday from his 28 day board and train package! We couldn’t believe the changes in him!!! He has such focus, is so happy to train, wants to please us and best of all will now walk right next to me while walking!!!! No more pulling!!! He is calmer than before training too. Still the same goofy, happy, loving pup but the best version of himself if that makes sense? We highly recommend Patriots Dog Training! I wish I could give it more than 5 stars!!!

We brought our puppy Hazel in for the four week training session. She is amazing! I have had dogs my whole life and I’ve never had one so well trained, it’s all the more impressive when you consider she’s only four months old. The staff go out of the way to keep you informed and make you feel comfortable about your dogs will being. I cannot be more impressed!

Benny and crew completely took care of my family. Our dog Lola is night and day in comparison when we dropped off. I highly recommend this company and if you are looking for amazing dog training look no further!

Super quality place in the country part of Bulverde. Such a good set up and they were able to take care of our 80lb not the most well behaving puppy just fine. Definitely would recommend for both boarding and training. Not too expensive either.

I am very impressed with the professionalism of Benny, Erica and the rest of the staff. They did an excellent job training our crazy Golden puppy, Max. He is no longer biting or trying to dominate me, seems calmer. He is STILL a puppy, playful, sneaky though! It will take time on my part, for his training to effect permanent change, though. You have to keep working with them, but I was given that final piece I needed to grow a fine Golden Retriever. We’re very happy ????❣️

I can’t say enough about Patriot Dog Training and their staff. I have known Benito for years from our Navy days together. When i realized I needed more assistance with training and obedience I knew as soon as I called Benito that him and the staff would take care of me and my dog. Not only did I get weekly updates via pictures of my pup while training but also calls from the staff telling me about how my dog was progressing. The one on one (individual or family) lesson during pickup was top notch. Don’t waste your money going to other places. Call Patriot Dog Training and get your dog trained by the BEST in the business
