The Academy is a positive reinforcement school for dogs, providing obedience training and house manners; solving common behavioural issues. Like other internationally renowned dog training schools, The Academy is a leader in our industry.

As part of our standard for excellence, we hold no reservations against breed, age, or behavioural problem. We understand and honour your commitment to your dog, and will not abandon you or your pet. If we encounter a behaviour we cannot work with, we will refer you to a vet/behaviourist at Foothills Animal Hospital.

Behaviour Adjustment Consultations

Is there a break down in communication between you and your dog? Are you having issues with:

Biting - Aggression - Reactivity

Behavioural consultation packages are available to help owners who want to address extreme behaviours. Please fill out the detailed form below to begin the process.

The first stage is a private consult, where the trainer is introduced to your dog and the behaviours you’re experiencing. The trainer will gather as much information as possible in order to determine the best method of changing the behaviour.

The second stage is all about the training - these are a series of appointments where the trainer will handle your dog, and you’ll be shown how to repeat the behaviour. You are provided with the skills and tools to begin working on changing the behaviour.

All consultations are conducted in-home. We do NOT do over the phone consultations.

Private Training

Maybe you just got a new puppy, or have a new rescue that you’d like to work on some house manners with? Your adolescent dog has started testing some boundaries, and you just can’t seem to get ahead of the curve.

Don’t worry, our private training can be done from the comfort of your home, with realistic homework to keep you on track.

The first portion of any appointment will be spent finding out what your expectations, lifestyle and dogs personality are like. Then, our trainers will detail how to manage and create new behaviours. You will be given comprehensive homework about how to maintain these once the trainer has gone.

Over the course of the program, you have access to your trainer for any questions or concerns, as well as adjustments to the program. Many times, clients simply call to tell us what they’ve been able to accomplish in such a short period of time.

Private sessions are done from the comfort of your home, as often the best behaviour is learned with low distractions. Please complete the form below before your appointment.
