About Trifecta Kennels

The college years at Penn State prepared us both well for our professional careers, but 6 years into the Child Protective Services was all it took for Lisa to realize her interests centered on dogs and human/dog relationships.

We named the kennel after a Trifecta horse race that we won when three of us Penn Staters won on a Trifecta ticket at Pocono Downs.

We have attended seminars and pursued ongoing continuing education so we could become experts on the care of dogs and the training of dogs.  We have launched the Therapy dog careers of hundreds of Therapy dogs over these many years.  We have also sparked interest in the sport of canine Obedience, Rally and Agility for large numbers of our Trifecta family. Our training programs are veterinarian used and recommended.

Our GroundsOur goals when working with dog owners via the training programs is to help them enhance the human/dog relationship so that both the human and the dog can prosper from a lifelong rewarding human-dog interaction. This is a passion of ours, developed over the past 30 years. We want both the dog and the human to thrive together.

We were the first kennel in the region to offer play yards and play time to our canine guests.  We have always believed that visiting canines would like to get out of the kennel and exercise freely, off leash.  When you are looking for the best place to leave your dog, while your away, use trifecta- we are experienced, responsible and treat our guests as though they were our own dogs!
