About Amy Herbert
Boulder Ridge Kennels
Amy Herbert is a Certified Dog Trainer who has been training dogs since she was a child. She has trained dogs in Obedience, Rally, Agility, Canine Good Citizen and Conformation. Amy has a long background in equine sports including dressage, show jumping, cross country, english pleasure and showmanship. She is able to use a lot of her horse background with training dogs.
Amy loves all types of animals and truly enjoys working with them and seeing them learn things that will make their lives more enjoyable. She has many animals on her small farm and raises all her own meat for her family. The variety of livestock include pigs, turkeys, laying hens, broiler chickens, meat rabbits and an occasional goat.
Amy has a gift for connecting with all types of animals. They respond to and bond with her almost immediately. Her teaching style is very laid back and casual which makes her clients feel comfortable and allows for easy learning. She runs her kennel with the same casual, inviting atmosphere. Most mornings you find Amy, still in her pajamas, outside doing chores with her dogs following in her tracks.
Amy volunteers at animal shelters, does rescue work and volunteers her time at several facilities doing therapy work with her dogs.
In 2004 she purchased her first Bullmastiff and the rest is history!! Amy is passionate about her dogs and spends countless hours researching the best diet, vaccine protocols, training etc to ensure that her dogs are getting the best of everything and are raised to be the absolute best that they can be. On the breeding side of things Amy is just as passionate about matching up the right dogs and pedigrees to ensure optimal health, temperament and longevity in the puppies she produces. Matching the right puppy to the right family is something she doesn't take lightly and does formal temperament testing on every puppy to ensure each family gets a dog that truly fits into their lifestyle and household.
All of her dogs live in the house and are a big part of her family, which consists of her husband Nate, boys Jacob & Zachary and 3 cats.
