Dog and Puppy Training Houston, Texas

When you need Houston dog training, especially Houston dog obedience training, contact Shelmar Kennels.

Shelmar Kennels is located just outside of Old Town Katy in a country, 20 acre setting. We specialize in Katy and Houston dog obedience training and also offer dog boarding in Katy. Serving the Greater Houston, Katy and surrounding areas, Shelmar caters to dogs of all breeds, but more specifically to those that crave a long run or a swim in the pond. We pride ourselves in the care and attention each individual obedience dog receives. At Shelmar we work diligently to make sure your life with your pet is a rewarding experience.

Shelmar Kennels is owned and operated by Martin and Shelly Bell. We have a combined 30 year working knowledge in the dog industry, specifically dog training, from field trial competitors to faithful companions. We have authored a number of published articles on dog events and dog training manuals. Our main belief is that basic dog obedience, like the concrete foundation of a house, is the basic building block for success at home or in the field: instilling basic commands in a dog in a positive learning environment will enable you, the owner, to achieve many goals with your dog with time and dedication. In our opinion, breeds such as Labradors, Golden Retrievers and Spaniels need an active lifestyle- we encourage swimming and retrieving as part of training, giving the owner the tools to properly exercise their dog’s mind and body.

Houston Dog Training & Boarding Services:

When your pup enters one of our Katy area Houston dog training programs, he or she receives the same care and attention as our own personal dogs. We hold ourselves to a high standard in the animal care and training industry.


We are predominantly a training kennel – we have a busy schedule giving lessons to clients picking up their dogs. We cannot be disturbed when giving lessons and instruction to our other clients. Each and every client deserves 100% of our concentration to ensure a successful transition from Shelmar Kennels to the owner’s home.
