Von Falconer K-9 Training Facility
”If you have the passion to train dogs or have a pet to communicate with, it is an honest world. A dog is a loyal companion who loves you unconditionally and will jump in an old car or a new one just to be with you. They don't care about your religion or the color of your skin, what your political party is or what sex you are. If you have a disability they are there to serve you and they do not care how old you are either. They just want to please. They are the human's Best Friend and that is the true story.” (Eric Falconer- Master Trainer)
Von Falconer K9 is a Professional Training Facility nestled in the beautiful Santa Cruz Mountains. We are dedicated to educating and training people and their dogs. We offer ongoing Obedience Classes here at our facility every Saturday and Sunday, weather permitting.
We also do selective breeding of German and Dutch Shepherd Dogs. Our goal has always been to breed a superior dog with high ball drive, sound nerves, an excellent temperament, courage and intelligence. To achieve this, we only use proven imported studs that are or have been working Police Service Dogs and females that we have raised ourselves and who remain with us until they are 4-5 years old when they are retired and adopted out to good homes.
We also specialize in importing and training the finest canines from Germany, Holland, Slovakia, and the Czech Republic, for family and executive protection. All dogs are hand selected and tested for Police or Family and Executive Protection Work.
Don't just settle for any dog - get the best one that you can. It is an investment in your future. ALL DOGS ARE GUARANTEED!
Our Services Include:
Puppy and Adult Classes
Boarding and "Boot Camp"
Private Obedience Classes
Family Protection Training
Behavior & Temperament Evaluations
German & Dutch Shepherd Stud Services

^ Ron and Jane with Valroy at Carmel Beach ^
Spring is a great time to plan your outings with your families, your
friends and your dogs. The woods and fields are coming back to life
and exploring new places, or even familiar ones close to home, can be
a revitalizing experience now that the chilly days have pretty much
passed. It is possible to spend an entire morning or afternoon at
the nearest beach which is still relatively deserted. There are even a
few, like Carmel Beach, that are entirely leash-free. If you have good
recall and your dogs are well socialized, you can relax and let them
run for hours.

Santa Cruz Dog Boarding
If you are thinking about a short or long trip, a cruise to sunnier climes, or just a
couple of days out of town, we always have a room for your dog to stay here at our
“Mountain Retreat”. While staying with us, he/she will receive daily training sessions in
addition to enjoying several romps around the fully-fenced property on his/her own
each day. You can be confident that we will do our best to care for your dog as well
as you would yourself. They will miss you of course, but it will still be a good experience
for them. We also offer what we call the VIP Boarding Experience. For an additional $10
a day, your dog will live in the house with us and be taken along on any trips we take
away from the facility. This can include beach walks, downtown walks, shopping, errands
and visits to friends – all of which are great for socialization.
