Five Stars for the record. I have been boarding and training many many dogs with Pam & Ken White for over 26 years. Training in multi areas with either Ken and/or Pam depending on the type of training. I found they trained the dog, me, and us together, taking any needed extra time to help enforce the training. I have had problem dogs, and problems in certain areas of training with other dogs, as well as interactions between the dogs and myself. Firstly, I believe Ken to be a sort of "Dog Whisperer"...as many times I have watched this man, from the sideline with others, as well as myself. Almost immediately, Ken can detect the problems, and guide you and your dog through past it. Not so un-commonly, many times it was the owners (myself included) confusing the dog. Simply put, it took knowing eyes to see the problem, and guidance to turn it around. Which is why this these two 'make the difference' you don't receive at many other facilities. Secondly, I have worked with Pam many many days, not only with my own dogs but those of others. To help me in my own training capabilities, and of course, additiional help for an 'In house trainee' dog that required adjustments to strangers and socialism. I have been allowed to watch clients in training, to viewing & teaching me the owner/handler and the dog perspective. I have experienced many hours of watching on the sideline, the private hours of both Pam and Ken, while they trained, worked, handled, or socialized many dogs, their iwn included. Through out the 26 years I have known, trained and boarded my animals with them, I have seen it all....I came to the conclusion, it is usually not the dog, or the breed, its the Owner. And many owners need more training than the dog. They Train both very well...and can spot a problem very quickly. They can also rectify the problems, if you accept the guidance. I continue to send people to them, and they are very pleased I did.....in turn send their friends. Now....I will make remark on two post I've just seen here.....never, never, in those 26 years did I ever see what you are claiming....However, In the 26 years, I did 'hear' similar ..... it was always a customer who wanted the training, or boarding - then didn't want to pay the bill. A few times, the dog was perfectly fine at training center, until the owner came in...definetly conclusive of abuse at home....Sad to say, eventually it was those abused dogs, that later, were 'offered', by owners, to return to Pam & Ken to "Please can you fix my dog and find it a good home"...or...."This dog just hates me"...or worse..."I just don't like this dog, I need a different kind of dog". Just saying.....I have been there when others were not, saw everything, and... I still take my dogs there and send many others. Thankyou
ABSOLUTELY LOVE Park Cities Obedience School!! Our dog, Jackson, has a large personality... and loves people, but doesn't always get along with other dogs. We board Jackson here (have for over 2 years now) when we are out of town - maybe 4-7 times a year - and as soon as Jackson realizes I'm p…
Pam is a great trainer. She is firm but not in a negative way. It is extremely hard work doing what she does and in addition to all the work she has nothing but love for animals. I board my dogs there as needed sometimes as long as a week or two and they always come back home happy and tired. E…
My sister Carol owns Boyken Kennel. Because I live in Florida I've never seen how she manages her kennel until these past few weeks during the Thanksgiving holiday when I was there for a visit. The first thing I saw was how well she took care of so many dogs and how she was so diligent with keep…
Just tried to leave my dogs who had just stayed at Canine Country Club and got caught up on missing shots there. At 11 pm I tried to arrange boarding for my 2 dogs. I had to travel to Virginia on a 7:45 flight. Despite them having same rules as Canine Country Club, they refused to take my dog…

Kat is the best trainer - lots of praise & petting. Dolly, I just can't believe she could train a 10-year old dog to potty outside in just two weeks. Man's Best Friend saved my dog's life. She was one day from getting put down when I brought her here. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
ABSOLUTELY LOVE Park Cities Obedience School!! Our dog, Jackson, has a large personality... and loves people, but doesn't always get along with other dogs. We board Jackson here (have for over 2 years now) when we are out of town - maybe 4-7 times a year - and as soon as Jackson realizes I'm packing his bag to go he gets insanely excited.. and doesn't even acknowledge us when we drop him off because he is so excited to see the lovely staff at PCOS! He doesn't do well with the other dogs in daycare so they let him sit at the front desk during the days, and he LOVES it. It makes my husband and I so happy when we come to pick him up and he barely acknowledges us... it's obvious he's had a great time. This May we got married (wedding in North Carolina and honeymoon overseas) and Jackson stayed for almost two weeks, I was very concerned - but he was just fine! The suite allowed us to see him via camera and even talk to him... YES!!!! I RECOMMEND PCOS.
I disagree with Lisa and Friendlyreminders. I have been using her for almost two years now. I had gone first to a high end agility school. They did not know how to handle big working dogs. She does. My giant schnauzer is 2 1/2 years old and we just started competing in agility 5 months ago. Jazz has several titles and countless ribbons in agility. Her beating dogs I do not believe that. My girl loves her. In fact if she is on the field my girl runs to her for some loving when she needs to be working. She trains small to large dogs. Each dog is different and requires different training requirements. Is she tough and cusses like a sailor? Yes. That is just on the surface, really she is a sweetie. Do not wear your feeling on your shirt sleeves. If you can not get her to answer the phone, text her. She is busy cleaning the kennels, walking the dogs and training. If it had not been for Pam, Jazz and I would be at the level we are now.
Phenomenal trainers who understand dogs, both for agility and schutzhund. We have the gentlest German Shepherd who performs "bite work" on command only...and also tolerates our 4-year-old by allowing him the run of the house. Excellent breeders, trainers, and coaches that control their emotions so that the dogs get clear signals. We have learned so much from them over the years. And, yes, we do board our German Shepherd when we go on vacation. When we return to pick him up, he is never in a rush to leave "Camp Pam." The previous reviewer does not sound like she was a good fit for Canine Workshop--this is a serious place that trains working dogs, not house pets. For what she wanted, obedience school at Petsmart would suffice.
Pam is a great trainer. She is firm but not in a negative way. It is extremely hard work doing what she does and in addition to all the work she has nothing but love for animals. I board my dogs there as needed sometimes as long as a week or two and they always come back home happy and tired. Every time I get ready to head that way I look at my pups and say want to go see Pam... And they run to the door excited. Its an added bonus for the pups that she has property large enough to have several areas fenced in for the dogs to play in. And that's separate from the huge area she uses for training. Pam and her husband are wonderful and I am so glad to have found a place where I know my dogs are getting great care.
Canine Workshop is undoubtedly the best training and boarding center I have ever encountered. I would never buy another dog or have them trained anywhere else. Pam, along with Ken, is an AWESOME trainer! She has a great disposition and is dedicated to her work and has been for many, many years. This is a place where you can leave your dog with no worries that they are being taken care of properly.
I am extremely happy with the training and care my dog Charlie received during his 2 week training at PCOS. I am also very happy with the care he has been receiving at their Doggie Daycare in the 4 years since that training. I would recommend PCOS for training, boarding and day care.
We have had two dogs trained here within the past fifteen years with wonderful trainers. We have had good experiences with boarding and grooming too. Thank you PCOS! Marie T.
