About Us

Thank you for visiting The Canine Culture™.  Our dogs have always been a big part of our family.  We think of them as our four-legged children and treat them accordingly although it is quite clear to us that they have their own unique culture.  We believe all dogs deserve lots of human interaction and should be kept well groomed and pest free.  Like nature intended, they should eat only highly nutritious foods, have a safe, comfortable place to sleep and lots of green grass to run and play on.  Like children, dogs should be taught to be good citizens and teaching them should be done with understanding, love and patience.

Kyle Heron and Gary Gilbert took over in July 2023. Gary has extensive military security and managerial experience before giving up that life to pursue his true passion, working with dogs! Gary has been working exclusively with training and boarding dogs for the past 15 years. He has extensive training from, the top famous trainers including Cesar Milan and other dog professionals in the industry. His passion includes training, dogs for service, disabled veterans, rescue dogs, and making your household pet a pleasure to be around. His dedication to the animals is evident in all of his interactions. He is detail oriented, kind and creative in his approach to training and is looking forward to working with and taking care your your pet. 

We live on premises and take a very active part in the actual day-to-day operation of our kennels.  We do not employ a manager – we manage our dog-loving staff ourselves. We participate daily in the cleaning, feeding, exercising, training and grooming of all our guests to ensure our high standards remain constant. It is our pleasure to welcome your beloved canine as a guest of our family.
