Can your dog do this? Flintstone Kennel Turns Out Top Dogs

By: Latricia Thomas
They aren't your typical commuting companions, but a graduate of Blowing Springs Kennel is anything but your average pet.

Roddy Reynolds says he's actually NOT in the business of training dogs, but instead getting their owners to obey. “Our number one goal is to train the owners,” Reynolds says. “Dog issues are never the dogs, it's always the owners and the environment the dog's been raised in.”

At Blowing Springs, the first thing you notice about the kennel is what it's NOT. Every dog is sitting, or lying, quietly until called upon to work or play. They turn out dogs trained to soothe their owners through therapy, catch a criminal or bring back a downed bird, but Reynolds and his team of trainers always start with the basics.

He says most dog owners don’t know how to communicate with their animals, using words instead of their language. “If I want them to stay there,” Reynolds says, “my body language is going to tell them to stay there. Stay means stay. It's not a suggestion, we teach gospel language.”

Without a word, this master trainer uses a flick of the wrist to prompt the pups. "If I wanted this man to say something to me, I ask him with body language, not my mouth."

The main goal is making sure that each dog has a purpose, not just a meal ticket. “We want to give dogs jobs here,” Reynolds says, “so we want them to think ‘What am I going to do to earn a living today, not what are the owners going to give me today."

And whether they are checking in for a month, or just a refresher course, each dog gets a jump on becoming that perfect pet.
