Certified Canine Services Kennel for Dog Training


In 1997 after graduating from Training school Neil began his training career by doing an obedience camp program in his then, one car garage in the suburbs of Syracuse.

After a few years, he moved his business to the Pulaski NY area and in April of 2001 Certified Canine Services Inc. was born. Fast forward to 2011 Neil's wife Rachel was out driving one day and found an 8-acre lot only a mile and a half from their home that was for sale. That piece of land is where Neil finally got to build the facility he had always wanted, conveniently located near Syracuse, Oswego and Watertown, NY.


As business continues to grow more changes are made to the building and staff. The most recent improvement is a best-in-class, medical-grade air purification system from Healthway. This system removes viral and bacterial particles down to .007 microns from the air. Bordetella is a Bacterium that causes Kennel Cough in dogs, this system removes that from the air along with SARS-CoV-2 which is the cause of COVID-19. Our cleaning regimen removes these things from surfaces so both dogs and humans are covered. We are proud to be the first kennel to have this system installed in our facility. The safety of our customers and their dogs is and always has been our number one priority.

We just completed our latest expansion which was an over 3000 Square foot building completely turfed with K9 Forever Grass and used for indoor socials for times when the weather prevents us from using our outdoor fields. It is also an extra area for training, exercise and playtime.


Our dog training facility is situated in upstate New York just one mile from the beautiful shores of Lake Ontario, near Oswego, Syracuse and Watertown, NY. Our indoor training center is 6080 square feet of space that were designed for the health, safety, and well being of each beloved dog in our care. We pride ourselves on being one of the safest training environments your pet could possibly stay in.


We have a fully fenced outdoor training field used for both off leash training and group play socialization. We have 8 acres of wooded land and a half mile trail used for training, exercise, and fun strolls with your dogs.


Each dog has their own Spacious indoor kennels with microfleece bedding and Nylabone toys included. Each one of our kennels was designed by Mason kennels which are considered to be the finest quality kennels in the industry. All dogs also have their own individual outdoor area that is used several times a day for potty breaks. These kennels and outdoor spaces are meticulously cleaned each day with a germicidal and disinfectant designed for veterinarian facilities and kennels.
