About Us

With a passion for canine behavior, Lisa Moore began her long time career in competition obedience. After winning multiple national obedience titles, she didn’t stop there! In 1989 she established Top Notch Dog Training. With her talent and continued education in canine behavior she now shares her knowledge in classes and seminars designed to enhance the relationship between dogs and their families.

Recognizing the need for a home away from home for our beloved furry friends during family vacations and long days at work, Top Notch Kennels was born. Opened in 2002, Top Notch Kennels was custom designed and built to provide the highest quality canine care and comfort while maintaining the utmost standard of cleanliness.

Today Top Notch Kennels has grown to offer a wide range of services including: boarding, daycare, training classes, private lessons, behavioral consultations, grooming, in-home pet sitting, dog walking, pet taxi and the Bow Wow Boutique.

Our friendly staff invites you to come take a tour of our facilities! Come visit anytime during office hours!
