DogStar Training NJ is run by Kathy Medel, I was fortunate enough to have Kathy as my puppy’s trainer for her AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy class. Upon graduation we went right into AKC Canine Good Citizen and Therapy Dog Class. Kathy truly “speaks dog”. My Carly just adores her. Kathy has been Carly’s teacher all through those classes and I couldn’t recommend her enough! I’ve referred 2 friends and 1 neighbor to her. Kathy is more than knowledgeable; she’s akin to the doggy encyclopedia. She also looks to expand her own background as a trainer, learning new techniques and going to seminars. Kathy is kind, patient and generous with her time and clearly loves her furry clientele!

My husband Jim and I owe a debt of gratitude to Kathy and DogStar Training for helping us and our rescued husky Kodiak! Kodiak had extreme separation anxiety, had destroyed much of our home, and could not be crated. Kathy worked with Kodi and with us, on techniques to use, advice, new ways to approach Kodi's care,and within 6 visits, gave us back our home and a dog we now couldn't live without! Thank You Kathy and DogStar Training!

Kathy, the owner of DogStar Training NJ, is one of the most knowledgeable, dependable dog trainers I know. She was able to train my Shelby the sit/stay command in just a short time. It was truly amazing.

Kathy was able to establish a relationship with Shelby and me very quickly. She practices positive training techniques and will customize training to meet your needs.

After classes at DogStar Training NJ I was able to take my dogs to my mom’s assisted living facility and this has brought my mother and the other patients much happiness.

Kathy really loves working with pets and their owners to help them be successful pet owners.

I was 100% pleased and satisfied with the results of taking my dog, Daphane, to one of Kathy’s training classes.

When we started out, Daphane was a stubborn, boss of all of us dachshund. With loving and positive training methods, Kathy was able to show me how to train Daphane to listen and enjoy what she was learning. We both enjoyed her class and loved Kathy as a teacher, and now a friend for life!
