Our first note of gratitude for Kyle Warren is for the privilege of being the proud human parents of the handsome Noble vom Schutzberg, a pup from the Maya/Quax litter. This beautiful, intelligent, sweet, engaging and oh so precocious shepherd is truly the light of our lives. Though little did we know the icing on the cake was yet to come….having the venerable Kyle in our lives, a true “alpha” in the dog world.
As I write this note, Noble is coming upon two years of age, and so it’s almost two years for us as students under Kyle’s tutelage. I say student(s) plural because my husband and I are in training just as much as Noble. And somewhat embarrassingly, sometimes Noble even outperforms his two-legged caretakers, as we continue to learn not only the nuances of canine behavior through Kyle, but also a lot about ourselves and our relationships to each other.
I am no stranger to obedience training with dogs before Noble; however, Kyle educates us in a style like none other. He truly understands the canine instinct, as though he has a direct intuitive link into the dog’s mind – and ours too for that matter! Our weekly lessons are always a fun family affair, and no one looks more forward to spending an hour with Kyle than Noble. Kyle’s expertise and diligence along with our homework has helped Noble evolve into a well-adjusted and well-behaved member of our family and very social lifestyle.
Kyle’s group lesson is always a favorite time for Noble and I to socialize with other dogs and their owners as well as hone our field skills. We can’t say enough how grateful we are to be part of Kyle’s “pack”, knowing he’s always available to help us through a challenge, consult on a health issue or help us understand our people/dog interactions.
Kyle, we love you!
Pat, Karen & Noble
