Welcome to Our Citizen Canine Academy Puppy and Dog Training Program

We are committed to enhancing the relationship between pet parents and their dogs which is why we created Citizen Canine Academy.

We believe living with your puppy or dog should be a rewarding experience, not a frustrating one! Our positive reward-based training teaches fundamentals, impulse control, basic dog obedience and social skills. Your dog is socialized to various people, dogs and environmental stimuli.

Citizen Canine Academy offers a perfect hybrid of training and daycare. Your dog will work one-on one with our training team to learn social fundamentals, basic skills, manners, and loose leash walking. Training is throughout the day divided into several sessions. In addition to training time there is monitored social playtime, and rest time. 

Day training and play is customized to meet your goals and your dogs needs.
