Professional Dog Training
Valor K9 Academy is a small, veteran-owned dog training company based in Spokane, WA and Chattanooga, TN. We specialize in puppy training, off leash obedience training and behavior rehabilitation for all dogs. Our goal is to create a strong bond between owners and their dogs through training. We believe that all dogs can be trained, and that training should be fun!
What we can do for you:
Program details and pricing are listed in the menu link. Not sure which program is the best one for you? Contact us today and sign up for a complimentary consultation! Meet with a trainer to discuss your dog’s behavior and training goals.
Dogs talk, but only to those who know how to listen. Here at Valor K9 Academy, we believe that successful dog training is based on three things: communication, motivation and relationship. Therefore, everything we do fosters those key principles. We use a reward-based approach to training and later add corrections so that training is clear, consistent and reliable. Are you ready to have fun training?
Here at Valor K9 Academy, we’re all about giving back to the communities that support us. Since our start in 2014, we’ve donated $31,349 in training to non-profit animal rescue groups, shelters and charities in our communities.
Valor 4 Veterans is a non-profit organization founded by Valor K9 Academy with a mission to provide PTSD service dog training for military veterans in the greater Spokane area. All training is donated free of charge by Valor K9 Academy for select veterans on a case-by-case basis.

Very knowledgeable and caring trainers, attention to detail is very evident! Amy is a great trainer of dogs and handlers/owners and I’m extremely thankful for what her and the Valor family has done for me and my pup.
Valor K9 Academy is hands down the best I have ever witnessed! I am blown away by Amy's experience, certifications and genuine love for dogs. I take the R4A dogs to and refer all of our adopters to them!! Thank you Valor K9 Academy for being AMAZING!
Absolutely an amazing job with my 5 month old puppy. Amy is an incredibly talented trainer who loves her "clients". Have fun!!
Amy and her staff are truly amazing! They have been amazing to work with and go above and beyond for their clients.
Valor K9 Spokane delivers the best training this area has to offer. The owner is no-nonsense, very direct and most importantly efficient. She has a clear plan and will explain the steps to get there. If you are looking for a training company to send your dog to, this is the place, hands-down that I would recommend.
Anyone looking for a place to train your dog and yourself, this is the place to go. The owner, Amy, goes above and beyond to help to make training successful.
This is a great training facility with a very straightforward instructor who understands dogs and dog behavior. I recommend Valor to everyone!
Often I find trainers either lean too much on the positive side or rely too much on punishment. I found Amy to be an exceptional trainer that is truly balanced - She is firm, but fair.
We love Amy & Valor K9!! They have so many classes to offer... something for everyone!
Valor K9 is pretty much AMAZING and I would highly recommend!!!
I absolutely love the trainers here! Courtney and Amy have done wonders helping me become more confident as a dog owner and building my dogs confidence.
Amy saves dogs with balanced training. She teaches owners to offer treats for good behavior and corrections for bad behavior.
Amy's training is worth every penny. Learning to use the e-collar correctly has helped me to turn Scout into a listener and not a runner!
Amy and Valor K9 Academy have been truly amazing for us. Thank you to Amy and her team for taking such good care of Tess, and us.
