I had a wonderful experience. Wayne came right in time, he was so nice and kind to my dog, answered all my questions and gave me lots of helpful suggestions. I saw pictures and video of his boarding and training facility and it looks great! I’ll definitely use his boarding services.

I sent my Great Pyrenees to Bog Dog Academy. They did such a good job training him and taking care of him! My Bronx is such a better dog thanks to them!!

Wayne with Big Dog Academy was so amazing! We have two pit mixes that were starting to get aggressive with each other. I called Wayne to ask for some advice and if they would be able to work with our dogs. He was honest and said they would definitely try. Not only did they spend 5 weeks working with our more aggressive dog, they also had our other dog spend several days at the academy free of charge so they could work with both dogs together!! We have been more than happy with the results so far. Our dogs have not fought once since being home. They are listening better and are easier to take on walks or go places with. Our household is calmer, more relaxed and way more enjoyable now! We have our training videos and training tools to continue the process. Wayne is just a text away if we have any questions. Big Dog Academy was just what we needed!! So happy we chose them to help us train our dogs!

Big Dog Academy, really helped my husky Timber and myself. When he was having trouble minding, they taught me other avenues to work with him. He has grown so much a wonderful dog and will continue to be a great member of the family for years to come.

Wayne and the staff at The Big Dog Academy are amazing. My dog, Roscoe, is a rescue with an unknown background who was very leash and other dog reactive. He was the sweetest dog but I had a hard time getting his attention or making him mind. I was often scared for his safety if he got out of the yard or came in contact with unknown dogs. He now knows and follows several commands, walks on and off leash like a champ, and is always responsive when I seek his attention. He is much less anxious. I am so grateful to Big Dog Academy for helping my pup and I to have a much better life together!
