About Jim Durham
Jim Durham, owner and operator of Durham Kennels, has been training dogs for over thirty years in the Central Kentucky area, including dog obedience training in Lexington, Kentucky area. At the beginning of his career, he sought professional training in New York and has since developed his own unique training style. His approach is hands-on and utilizes repetition, consistency, and lots of loving care. During your initial phone consultation, Jim will assess the background, living environment, and personality of your dog, and then explain his training methods in detail, helping you to understand the important role that you will play in the outcome of your dog’s training. He will take time to listen and to answer any questions that arise before, during or after your dog is trained.
Because Jim limits his enrollment to four to six dogs per month, he is able to spend quality time with your dog every day, establishing trust, instilling the basic obedience commands, and giving your dog plenty of care and attention. After the initial training is complete, he will work with you one-on-one – guiding and coaching you every step of the way – teaching you to successfully execute the commands and gain control of your dog through firm, loving, and consistent reinforcement. His overall goal is to help you establish a lasting and rewarding relationship with your pet.
Dog obedience training in all areas of Kentucky, including Lexington, KY, Richmond, Berea and all of Central Kentucky.
