"After searching for a clean, knowledgeable of Australian Shepards training place. I came across Next Gen. It was a little drive from Concord area. Well worth the drive. Devon is very knowledgeable of this breed. She has a great team of people that have helped in the training. Highly recommend their boarding facility and training." - Kim Galindo

"I sent my dog to do a 3-week board and train with them in October, and I am really happy with the results. He is less reactive and easier to walk. Devon, and the whole group in general were easy to talk to and work with; they were very accommodating with my busy schedule. Pictures of my dog looked like he was at summer camp and having a good time!"

"My boyfriend and I enrolled our 18 month Belgian malinois for a two week boarding program . I didn’t have control of our dog he’s very reactive & didn’t do well on his leash . I’m able to take him out control the leash without him reacting to every person or every dog we see . There were a lot of things I was doing wrong that I wasn’t even aware of . I’m so thankful for their help and all the patience he had with me and my malinois. I would def. Recommend Next Gen!"

"Great place to board and train dogs! I've trained 2 dogs here and lemme tell you it's been an amazing life saver for one! First off, lots of space for the dogs to actually run. There's an agility course with an attached run that you can go in one at a time and let your dogs stretch their legs. Around the course is a trail where you can walk your dogs while you wait. This has been super helpful before classes ! Now, my own personal experience: both trainers have helped with my dogs ! My service dog always had problems with an off leash recall when there were distractions nearby. Devon really helped us with off leash, so now I feel comfortable taking him out on trails to enjoy his break time when I don't need him to be 100% on service dog mode. Thank you, guys ! You've helped our family so much !"

"This is a fantastic boarding and training facility. They treat your dog as their own. My (usually anxious) dog is always thrilled to arrive, and returns home happy and exhausted. Their facilities are clean, and unique - including an air conditioned boarding facility, outdoor runs and a huge field/agility course for the dogs to play in. Their own dogs are very well trained - and great examples of their process."

"Just picked my dog up from her 3 week board and train a few days ago and I can clearly see a change in her behavior. She’s so much calmer and confident, our walks have been stress free. I can tell there was alot of progress made in the past 3 weeks! It was so worth the time and money! Thank you so much!!" - Michelle Francis

"I want to express my appreciation for the exceptional team at NetGen ACS – they truly are amazing! We initially enrolled our two dogs, Pam and Hughie, in a two-week board and training program last summer. Originally, we were focused on addressing Pam's aggressive behaviors, but during the evaluation, it became apparent that we lacked control over both dogs. Upon arrival, Pam and Hughie exhibited protective behaviors, lunging at trainers and barking aggressively. This was a clear sign that both dogs needed training. I highly recommend NetGen ACS for boarding, training, or socializing your dog. They conduct training sessions every weekend, providing a valuable opportunity for all dog owners to participate." - Paul Prieto

"Our newly adopted 2 year old border collie, Buster, attended a 4 week board and train and LOVED his time at Next Gen ACS! We have seen a large change in his obedience and have learned the tools to deal with Busters reactivity. We enjoy having a safe place for him to be around dogs, practice agility and attend fun events and group classes with other dog lovers!" - Lauren Guevara

"Our dog Tai doesn't do great with new people, so we are careful with where we board him, but will definitely being going back to Next Gen ACS! Devon is both professional and awesome to deal with, and Tai loved his time there. Would strongly recommend to anyone!" - Patrick G.

"I highly recommend Devon and her very professional team, and I thank them for the results they were able to achieve in 3 weeks of training our 20 month miniature Australian Shepherd, Blu. We live in San Francisco and Blu was in need of the kind of on-leash training in particular that was beyond my capabilities and knowledge. I do not know the proven techniques and routines necessary to train him, and I do not have access to the kinds of calm facilities and space needed to be effective, so we signed him up for a three week board and train with Devon.

When we picked him up we were delighted with the results. Devon and her very friendly and fully engaged, highly energetic team have done a remarkable job with Blu. Best of all, we experienced positive results immediately upon returning to the city, he is a much improved dog. I look forward to participating in their weekly refresher sessions for reinforcement and to continue the learning process." - Mike W.

"Absolutely love Next Gen !
I don't even know where to begin. The setup is really nice and I like the agility course. My Aussie loves the challenge, and it's really fun to run with him and challenge ourselves on speed.
The real amazing development is with my blind reactive Australian Kelpie. They're already a stubborn breed, and with his disability we got as far as we could in his training without help.

With taking on two kids, I was so scared I would have to rehome him because he was having a hard time adjusting to my youngest. With their help, he now is more social with people and other dogs. He's making friends, and I just couldn't thank next gen enough. Without their patience and help, I can't even imagine what his future would have been. I'm so thankful for their help !" - Keana S.

"My husband and I wanted peace of mind of our dog's care while we were away on our honeymoon and wanted to ensure we found the right fit - we read raving reviews through our local dog community and knew we had to reach out! Our 3 y/o dog Juna is highly anxious and had reactivity issues to other dogs (it's a wildcard when she's out in public). She had undergone another training program prior that likely contributed to some of these issues.

Upon meeting Devon and the team for the first time, we were impressed on how thorough the consultation process was. Devon took the time to learn more about our goal with training, any past behaviors we wanted to correct, provided answers to our laundry list of questions, and let us tour the facility. Devon also guided us through a mini lesson, to which Juna took to so well in a matter of minutes. As someone who really appreciates insights into methodologies, I liked that she explained the WHY behind the training. We left feeling confident in our decision to choose Next Gen ACS for 2 weeks board and train.

I highly recommend considering Next Gen ACS for training! Thank you for not only making a huge impact on our dog's life but also to the community that you serve!" - Jeanette H.

"We brought our pup Thor to nextgen for a 2 week board and train and he instantly bonded with the trainer and saw strong improvement. Nothing but great things to say! We gladly drive the hour plus whenever we need additional services like boarding or follow ups. And the new facility is amazing!" - Todd G.

"My pup went for a 4 week Board and Train with Next Gen ACS. I was very nervous about it but after meeting the team and seeing the location (ranch setting), I had no doubt that my pup will be well taken care of and that he will have lots of fun with all of the other pups there. Although there were lots of Aussies, I'm happy to see that there are other breeds as well (boarding) at Next Gen so that my pup can be calmer and less reactive around other (bigger) dogs.

Next Gen gave us a free signing up lesson on how to loose leash walk my pup and how to manage his triggers better. That was super helpful in preparing my pup, Nori, for board and train. We also saw the actual training and the agility equipment, which was a plus! I wanted to make sure my pup, Nori, can have fun as well and not just training.

The location is well equipped for rainy days, which was important for me because we were boarding end of October to November.

I really recommend Next Gen ACS for Board and Train or even just boarding. Well organized place with experienced trainers who also have dogs themselves. The trainers put your pup as priority and set your pup up for success!

Thank you so much Next Gen ACS, and team!" - Ber Lina T.

"My dog Rusty is an Australian Shepard that is now 1 year. This is a very high energy dog. Aussie dogs need to be challenged with a job everyday. Devon has done an amazing job at working with Rusty.
Devon knew what my challenges were and how to deal with this breed. Their place was the cleanest facility that I could find." - Kim G.

"We rescued our dog Moose and he definitely needed some training after doing research we decided to come here. When Moose came home he was a very different dog. He became a great dog it was amazing. Moose has stayed another week when we went out of town, he loves coming here." - Julie H.
