At Blazing Trails K9 Academy, we are passionate dog lovers just like you. Our journey began over 30 years ago with a simple belief - every dog and owner deserve a great relationship! From the way we work with you and the way we train your individual dog, to the programs we offer, we are dedicated to helping you raise the dog you always wanted.
That's why we suggest starting with a free phone consultation so we can pinpoint your exact needs and deliver world class training services from the very beginning! That's why we have dedicated ourselves to providing comprehensive, humane, and effective training solutions. With over 3 decades of experience training thousands of owners and their dogs, double international organization certifications, and a deep understanding of the bond between pets and their owners, we've crafted training programs that prioritize you and your individual dog's needs. We will work together with you to provide a custom, exclusive experience in every way.
We specialize in basic problem solving including leash pulling, chewing, jumping, housetraining, digging and barking, as well as more advanced problems including reactivity, aggression, separation anxiety, fearfulness, and more.
We offer affordable group classes, individual and package private lessons, daytraining (the dog comes for the day for training lessons and goes back home at night) and board and train (let us do the heavy lifting!) We specialize in live virtual lessons as well! If there is a service you don't see, let us know as it may be something we offer!
Please contact us if you cannot find an answer to your question.
The most humane and effective methods possible. We refuse to lock into any one style or technique but instead are highly skilled in a variety of methods so we can choose the things that will be the best for your situation. We will always use positive motivation to teach new behaviors, and provide clear guidance to avoid problems, while working in the least aversive way to achieve the results you need.
While we strive to provide services of the highest quality, and our customers rate us very highly, it would be unethical to 100 percent guarantee a dogs behavior will change. That would be like saying a therapist will 100 percent change a persons behavior just with therapy. Because dogs are living breathing beings, and alot of our success rate depends on your ability to follow through in the way we describe, we can't in good conscience guarantee results. We can however guarantee we will always be happy to provide you with the best of our knowledge and abilities, and we work hard to provide only top notch customer service.
You are correct, there is alot of free information on the internet, and lots of friends can offer free advice. There are alot of books on the topic as well. When you hire an experienced professional, you can often save a lot of time, money, and hassle because with eyes on the dog we can customize. What is written on the internet or in a book, may apply to some dogs, but not always will it apply to your particular case. And for some things, applying a technique incorrectly or for the wrong problem, may end up making things even worse. For obedience training, we can cut your time down significantly. In the long run, alot of our clients spent a lot of money and frustration, trying to get it right, only to still end up with us in the end. Save yourself the time and heartache!
