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 $27,785 in training to non-profit animal rescue organizations, shelters and charities in Chattanooga, TN, and Spokane, WA. We care about dogs in need.
Valor 4 Veterans is a non-profit organization founded by Valor K9 Academy with a mission to provide service dog training to pre-selected military veterans in the greater Spokane area. All training is donated free of charge by Valor K9 Academy.
Valor K9 will transform the relationship you have with your dog for the better. Whether you're looking for obedience training or rehab for reactivity, Valor provides the skills and knowledge to help you and your canine companion.
