  • I cannot say enough positive things about them. For the last 20 years they have taken care of my dogs. Never have they been sad to go, perhaps sad to leave.

  • It was evident that they are very knowledgeable about dogs, their care, needs and behaviour. Our furry boy was taken excellent care of.

  • Best kennel ever!!! Dogs were happy, well-adjusted, couldn't ask for more. Thanks guys!

About Us

Havelberg Kennels was established in 1968 by Wolfram H. Klose, a former German Police Officer. He achieved the Dog World Award of Canine Distinction in 1970, becoming a Canadian record holder by completing all the obedience degrees in just over four months, with his German Shepherd Dog, Axel vom Havelberg, UD. Many of the dogs he has trained have appeared in television and movie productions.

Today, Havelberg Kennels continues to offer its professional training services, patiently teaching dogs and their owners how to live and work together. The long tradition of boarding dogs at the kennel for the duration of their training, has proven to be both highly successful and convenient for pet owners.
