A dog is known as man's best friend, and at Russell's K9 Academy, we couldn't agree more. Our pets are a part of our family, and we want the best for them just like we do our human family members. 

However, puppies don't come with a handbook and they can sometimes be difficult to train. Even older dogs may struggle with basic canine manners, which can be frustrating for pet owners, as well as family, friends, and neighbors.  

Our K9 training services allow you to bring out the best sides of your beloved four-legged friend to ensure that they live happily and you live stress-free. We offer a wide variety of K9 training services that can improve both you and your dog's quality of life. 

We know that every dog has a different personality and energy level, which is why we're trained to work with a wide variety of dogs.  

K9 training services

If you want your fluffy friend to be well-behaved, well-mannered, and even-tempered, K9 training can help. 

1. General commands

It's always fun to teach your puppy his first commands like "sit" and "shake." You may even adopt a dog that's a few years old that doesn't yet know his or her commands. 

Although owners are typically fully capable of training their puppy or senior dog to perform basic commands, sometimes they need extra help. Whether you don't have the time to dedicate to teaching your pup commands, or you just want help from a professional, Russell's is here for you. 

Not to mention, we can also help teach your dog some less common commands that you may not know how to teach on your own!

We can teach your dog basic commands including: 

  • no pulling on the leash
  • stay
  • leave it
  • feeding permission
  • wait
  • slow down
  • back up

And so many more! 

2. Perimeters and boundaries

It's important for all dogs to know their boundaries. Instead of having to rely on a fence or shock collar, we can help train your dog to know his or her perimeters and boundaries on his own. 

You'll be impressed with how smart your pup is! 

We can train him to: 

  • stay off roadways
  • be uncaged in the home without destroying things
  • keep out of certain rooms

And more! 

3. Exercise

Want to learn how to properly exercise and play with your pup to ensure that he stays healthy? We've got those services, too! 

We can teach you and demonstrate how to exercise with your pup by: 

  • retrieving
  • fetching
  • skateboarding or bicycling with your dog
  • swimming with your dog

And more! 

4. Behavioral problems

Sometimes, it's hard to admit when your pup has a behavioral problem, but rest assured, we can help you train your dog to leave behind destructive behavioral habits. 

It's important to never give up on your dog - there is hope for behavioral issues! 

We can help you with issues like: 

  • excessive barking
  • food stealing
  • separation anxiety
  • low-self esteem
  • soiling the house
  • obsession and fixation

And more! 

5. K9 rehab

If your pup was previously in an abusive situation or is aggressive, the right training can break them free from awful habits. 

We can help rehabilitate your pooch from: 

  • dog abuse
  • phobias
  • anxiety
  • fearful aggression
  • dominance aggression

And more! 

We can't wait to work with you and your pup! 

Training your pup is a joint effort - you have to be willing to learn, too! We can't wait to work with you and your pup to ensure that you're both living your best possible life as companions!
