Ms. Rosie and I had a wonderful time in the out and about class. I can’t begin to tell you (although I know I’ve mentioned it more than once!) how much we love your outdoor space. It’s really wonderful for us to have this opportunity. Thanks to you and Christina, I feel Rosie and I are a lot further ahead with our understanding of each other and are building a positive relationship in the great outdoors :) We hope to have more opportunities to do that this summer.

Our deepest thanks to you both for sharing yourselves and your expertise with us!


Pat and Rosie


Just moved to Bangor and needed a place for my tow dogs Trini and Carley to make friends and socialize a couple times a week. A bunch of people recommend green acres and both times by dogs have come home tired and happy! – Brent Scott (29MAR17)


We met the other day and you were very, VERY helpful in my journey toward dog ownership.  Thank you again, for all of your time and willingness to share your knowledge--I found our talk incredibly helpful.  I look forward to the training classes you told me about, and to having you and your employees help my kids and I grow into good dog owners, Most sincerely, Lisa McPhee, 3/12/17


We have a Great Pyrenees show quality dog who is gradually rising in AKC-sanctioned competitions. Although our breed group and Kennel Club can supply handling classes to train performance in the dog ring, we found that the early puppy classes at Green Acres were invaluable.

?Thanks to the training from Lois and Kate, our puppy was well-socialized and able to handle the interaction in tight spaces among other dogs and human handlers outside of the show ring. She conducts herself perfectly even in hotel corridors (highly recommend BringFido.com if you travel with your dog and need pet-friendly hotels). Even experienced canine handlers complement her behavior and manners.

Green Acres puppy training system has made it so much easier to take her to the next level of training specific to AKC showing. Most dogs are not going on the show circuit and we cannot think of a better way to prepare a family companion dog than the Green Acres puppy program. As


Thanks so much for taking such good care of Bubba during his vacation. He's exhausted from all of the fun! - Jennifer Smallidge Mitchell (24FEB17)


I haven't seen my human in a week...she has been sick :( But, Green Acres Kennel Shop has taken great care of me!!!!! I love playing there and being silly!!! I am going home today and helping to pack for my first big move! I'm going to live in Massapawsetts and I hear it is going to be amazing...I'll be near all my puppy cousins like, Usher and Buddy and Oskar and Coco!!!!! OH, the playing and walking that will happen will be EPIC! I hear they also have endless sidewalks...what are sidewalks??? So, much to learn and see!! I will miss my pupperpals here and watching the ISS fly overhead in the early mornings with my human...I will make sure she posts some photos of us soon though! Have a great weekend everyone...come play with me before I go!! <3 – Keller Army (28JAN17)


We are new to the area and Green Acres was recommended to us for our dog. He is new to us (and life in general) so had a lot of puppy traits like being overly excited and chewing on everything. We expected him to just have a stay at the kennel, but since he has been home he is much calmer and better behaved! It appears like they did more than just let him outside, but they must have played with him and loved him and trained him. It is very comforting that he is not showing signs of anxiety after being away for so long and he will definitely be going back there when we go on vacation next time. Thank you Green Acres! – Leah Kresge on Facebook – 3JAN17

corkythankyouemail 31dec16Thank you very much for caring for Corky "the Swedish Vallhund" this year.  Corky's a shy guy,  and I SO appreciate your patience and kindness caring for my dog.
I hate to leave Corky,  but sometimes travel necessitates leaving him behind.  I am very grateful for all the staff at Green Acres,  and the great job you all do caring for my furry family member.  It makes having to leave him a little bit easier knowing he's in your care.

Excellent training for all kinds of dogs. Classes are small, well structured and thought is given to each dog's needs. Recommendations given for everything are evidence based. We love Lois, Kate and Don! – Regen Gallagher on Facebook (8DEC16)


We just finished puppy classes and basic manners and loved it! Kate was very knowledgeable and helpful with specific questions. Offering suggestions that may help and demonstrating what she was talking about. All of the staff were friendly and helpful as well. We plan to take our pup there for grooming and boarding when we eventually go away overnight, he loves going there! Would recommend to everyone looking for a great place for puppy classes! – Jenn Whinery on Facebook (10DEC16)


My dog spent a few nights here over thanksgiving break. Was super happy with the whole experience. I would absolutely use them again. – Shari Reynolds on Facebook (6DEC16)


Today in my thanks I must include Green Acres and the wonderful staff. Earlier this month I was hospitalized on short notice while our blue-tick beagle Zoey was in day care at Green Acres. One phone call to them to ask that she stay the night was all it took, and my wife and I knew that she was in good hands, safe, warm, and well-fed. The hospital stay lasted three nights and I'm fine now, with gratitude for the loving folks who watched over our little girl-dog. And yesterday I received a "get well" card, signed by everyone at Green Acres. Very sweet! Thanks again for the care Zoey has gotten over the past nine years. You folks are the best! - Chuck Clark (24NOV16)


Our Lizzy attends doggie daycare every day and she's been boarded there. Everyone is great! They love her and she them. She plays hard and gets plenty of time for exercise. She's had a ton of GI problems, they've honored our choice for her diet and their daily treats/snacks are natural and have never caused issues. We love them and would never consider taking her somewhere else. – Cathy Zetterman, Oct. 26, 2016


We love this place and these people!  ? No one else has our trust when it comes to taking exceptional care of our fur baby Mr Bentley! We initially were very cautious as we have had not-so-great experiences with other kennels in the area. But wow! The people at Green Acres are the BEST!  ? They are hard-working, dedicated, and truly care about the pets and the people! Don't trust your furry friends to anyone else.  ?Kristen Hornbrook, SEPT2016


I just wanted to Thank Don and his crew for a wealth of outstanding advice regarding our next member of the family. I stopped in hoping to ask a few questions and Don gave me all the time in the world, answering question after question, and really and truly helping my family decide the right dog for our family need. His tips and comments reveal a wealth of knowledge, canine understanding and lifetime of experience. It was an absolute pleasure speaking with you today and I thank you once again for the opportunity! 

If you are even THINKING of getting a dog, talk to Don Hanson first and rest assured you will leave there enlightened and prepared! – Brett Landon-16SEP16
