Dear Norm and Tracy
We would like to thank you very much for
giving us the most memorable Christmas gift ever. Jazz has just surpassed the
40 lbs barrier. Mary Louise and myself could not be happier with the new
addition to the family with the exception of her play biting. Our family and
friends cannot believe how beautiful a puppy she is, you may have additional
business coming your way. I was on your website just the other day and to my
surprise, Jazz looked wonderful. It seems like yesterday that she was cute lil
puppy. Please keep in touch.
I just wanted to let you know how the training’s going with Lexi. We’ve been working on it every day. Her ‘sit’ seems to be a little slow though, she’s not as sharp as she is with you. We took her to my son’s soccer game and worked with her there on ‘down’ so we could watch the game and she did well at that. She gets distracted when we walk down the road, but she’s not pulling and the middle of her back is at my leg instead of her head. All in all, I think she’s about 80% better than she was before the training. I think that is pretty good, and no barbaric collar!!! I am pleased with the results.

I’m writing to tell you about the GREAT German Shepherd pup I purchased
from you in September 2001. Ace is ‘one of a kind.’ His temperament is very hard to find; he has soft eyes and a gentle mouth
– he is so playful and full of life. He
is everything I was looking for in a German Shepherd. I am very pleased and happy with Ace and if I ever need or want another
German Shepherd puppy, I will definitely call you at Bell Hollow.
Also, I am very pleased with his training. His training is excellent and
he listens well. If I ever need
another dog trained, I will not hesitate to call Bell Hollow. It didn’t take 6 weeks to have him trained, and it doesn’t take me 2
hours every day to work with him. With
the training you taught me, it is a way of life and I only have to work with him
10—15 minutes a day to maintain his training. He goes everywhere with me because he listens so well.

I’ve never had a dog quite so enjoyable. I love her temperament. She listens well because I had her trained by you at Bell Hollow. She loves being around me and even when I am outside at the barn, she will not run off from me. She stays right with me wherever I go. She is definitely a great companion and friend.

We bought our true German Shepherd (Roxi) from the Bell Hollow Dog Training Center and had her trained there at 6 months old.
Jim and I have had many different breeds of dogs between the two of us and we both agree that Roxi is hands down the best dog either one of us has ever had. We know that it is not a miracle how well Roxi behaves, (because Norm told us that it is the training not to mention the quality breed of the dog) but still day after day we talk about what a good dog Roxi is and how well she listens – she is a very smart dog.
Within a week of bringing Roxi home she was listening to come, sit and fetch, but now that we have all had proper training we realize that there is a lot more to having an obedient dog; it is not just the dog that gets trained at Bell Hollow Dog Training Center, the owners are trained as well, knowing the proper techniques on handling and correcting your dog makes all the difference in how well your dog listens to you. Roxi did not want to listen to me hardly at all before we had her trained, but with the training she does listen because she knows what is expected of her and raising my voice is a thing of the past.
We can take Roxi anywhere now and know that she is safe and in our control. Norms' training has made our relationship with Roxi and our everyday life much easier and happier!
If you are thinking of having your dog trained, go to Bell Hollow Dog Training Center, you won't regret it and if you are thinking about a new puppy… ask them about that too.

I am so delighted to have Elsa, she makes friends with everyone wherever she goes. I am always complimented on her temperament and beauty of movement. I can take her anywhere and she is so well behaved and of course that is due to your training of her too. She made friends with all my Labradors and my Bengal kittens. She 'plays mother' to my other pups and is basically my 'right hand helper'. She also makes a great guard dog for my kennels, but I have no worry about her not accepting anyone I accept. She is so wonderful with our neighbors children, all children in fact.
I could not have found a better dog/companion if I looked all over the world. Thank you !!

Norm and Tracy,
We are so happy with the addition of 'Shelby' to our home. She is the perfect companion to us, our little Yorkie and three parrots. Her disposition the best we have ever seen in a German Shepherd - kind, gentle, full of love and loyal to her family. She is a joy to work with because she is so smart and eager to please. We would recommend Bell Hollow German Shepherd to anyone, including people with with other pets and children. We would always be willing to offer a verbal reference as well.
