Welcome to Joyful Tails!


As former president of Houston GSD Rescue, we decided to have our puppy go through Kerstin's board and train program. After 5 weeks in Kerstin's home, we brought Pela back to Dallas. Kerstin's training program exceeded all our expectations. She also kept us updated throughout the positive reinforcement training process. Once home Pela was evaluated by a trainer in Dallas to further her training. The trainer was so amazed at 5 months old, she placed out of 3 obedience classes. The trainer said an in-home board and train environment was the best thing we could have ever done for her.

"Practical. Positive. Lasting Results." Joyful Tails offers an all-inclusive, in-home dog training experience for families and their pets in the greater Houston and Katy, Texas areas.

Where better for a dog to learn about behaving at home than in a home environment? Here at Joyful Tails we have created an obedience training curriculum that does just that – combining a home environment with positive, consistent, and clear methods. After many years of working with clients and a variety of rescue organizations, we have seen dogs blossom through our positive reinforcement-based training programs. We also offer private lessons in your home, custom-tailored to your needs. We will happily work with one or multiple-dog households.

Phone consultations are also available for guidance with small behavioral problems that do not necessarily require an onsite trainer. Our goal at Joyful Tails is to help you have a happy, well-adjusted furry family member. Please visit our Training page for more details!
