A productive lesson. Rona was great with our timid puppy. She gave us games to help our puppy come out of her shell, and had resource knowledge for us to utilize in the Austin area. Rona was able to help us with the type of collars, leases. & treats that would work best for "positive reinforcement training" our puppy. She is knowledgeable with the special requirements for giant breeds.
We highly recommend K-9 Kenny for dog training. We originally wanted to prepare our Pit Bull for our upcoming newborn. Specifically, we thought we needed to introduce Zeus to baby sounds and smells in order to prepare him for the huge addition. K-9 Kenny suggested we work on obedience training instead as a way to maintain control of our pup. The six sessions were money well spent! We now have a 6 week old baby, and Zeus is the most amazing dog and big brother ever. Before the training, I was unable to walk Zeus because I had no control over him. Today, I am able to walk Zeus and the newborn without any reservations or issues. Zeus is so obedient. K-9 Kenny was attentive in listening to our concerns and list of bad behaviors Zeus had, and he successfully developed a strategic plan each week to attack the issues. Kenny followed up each week with an elaborate email describing what we worked on. Not only is K-9 Kenny amazing at training, his friendliness and personality makes the training experience enjoyable. We are forever blessed to have met K-9 Kenny, and Zeus misses him already!
Although at this time I cannot afford my dog in training. She was so kind to give me some pointers. I'll use her in the future!
Michele was awesome and took great care of our puppies.
My 16 mos. old dog learns so fast after her first dog training recently. It is amazing to watch how she improves so much in a short time. Christie did an outstanding job with her.
Wonderful to work with listening to my requests. Also, the pup came back even better behaved!
Brought both our 'boys' (Bouvier des Flanders - head strong!) to Canine Academy for puppy training nearly 10 years ago and have continued to use them for boarding since then. Can't say enough good things about Lisa and her crew. The boys are so well-behaved (and know some pretty great tricks) and perk up when we say "Are we going to see Lisa?" Highly Recommend for training and/or boarding!
My training methods are gentle, allowing the animal I work with to choose the to shape themselves to the behaviors I am offering to them in my program.
We have over twenty years of experience working with dogs of all ages, sizes, and breeds. Our specialty is rehabilitating "hopeless cases," especially aggressive and reactive dogs. Through our work with area shelters and rescue groups, we have reformed many dogs who would have been euthanized, and made them suitable for adoption. We offer classes on various topics that are limited to only 4 dogs, so that everyone gets ample one-on-one attention and practice. Some of our customers prefer the convenience and flexible schedule of our private, customized sessions held at our facility in East Austin or at their location. Finally, we have our board and train program of intense behavioral modification for truly tough cases or just a basic brush-up on manners and obedience, while the owners are on vacation or traveling. Please visit our website for more details about schedules and pricing, training tips, articles, videos, and other information.
Very Precise and clear instructions. Helpful. Will continue.

Reed Villarreal has 8+ years of dog training experience working with anything from basic obedience to behavior modification for problems such as separation anxiety, reactivity (barking and lunging at other dogs), and aggression. We offer both private and in home day training options to help you reach your goals.
I specialize in service and hearing dog training. I enjoy training dogs that are given a job to people people.
I found Julie while I was exploring the variety of things (shows, events, competitions) my dog could experience. I was referred to her for instruction in what is called Nosework (a fun search and scenting activity). Through this experience Julie has introduced me to methods of training that have developed my relationship with my dog I didnt know was possible. Buddy (my 70 lb rescued mutt) and I are growing every day in our understanding of each other. I can better understand his behavior cues and He understands what Im asking of Him.
I am a nationally certified professional dog trainer by CPDT-KA and work with dogs and their people in obedience and behavior modification.
Michelle was fantastic! She came to my home to work with me and my puppy, Bennet. We worked on all kinds of things from obedience to loose leash walking to greeting other people and dogs. Bennet has been making such progress, I don't know what we would do without Michelle's help!
