Since 1974, our desire has been to establish a quality dog school and breeding facility. With the opening of Canine Academy in 1978 (formerly K-9 Academy, School for Dogs!), we began to achieve that goal.
As we grew and continued to learn from our experiences and studies, we eventually became the leading dog training center in New England. Having trained and worked with thousands of dogs during our careers, we incorporate practical experience as well as the latest scientific developments into our training.
In one year alone, we participated in a training workshop in St. Louis, Missouri, led by Tom Rose, an expert trainer in Schutzhund, a sport involving dogs doing tracking, obedience and protection exercises; another by Herr Bernhart Mannel, a leading trainer from Germany, held in Bowling Green, Kentucky; and one in Galesburg, IL, with Bob Self, editor of the AKC obedience publication, Front & Finish.
Other seminars included a police training workshop in Newton, KS (don’t look for it on a map unless it’s local), hosted by Tom Brenneman, Armin Zirim of France’s top-rated trainers in the French Ring Sport. In addition, we attended several talks led by veterinarians, animal behaviorists and university professors. All of these have helped us build on and improve our teaching skills.
Now we have started our own seminars and workshops at our new facility in Colorado Springs, Colorado. We look forward to working with you so we may share the benefits of our experience and education.
