Valor K9 Academy Professional Dog Training

Valor K9 Academy specializes in Puppy Training, Basic Obedience and Behavior Rehabilitation Training. We work with dogs of all ages and breeds – big and small, we train them all! Our dog training services include: puppy training, family companion obedience, Canine Good Citizen training, therapy dog training and behavior rehabilitation training for aggressive and fearful dogs. We use reward-based training methods that involve food and praise as well as training collars so that training is clear and consistent.

Our team of certified, professional trainers offer private in-home training, small group classes and board and train programs for dogs in need of training. We also offer private boarding services for our clients. Our Spokane location serves the greater Spokane area to include Cheney, Spokane Valley, Post Falls and Coeur d’Alene. Our Chattanooga location serves the greater Chattanooga area to include Signal Mountain, Lookout Mountain and Ooltewah.

Valor K9 is veteran-owned, and we operate under the highest standards of integrity and excellence. We pride ourselves on unbeatable customer service, and we always go the extra mile to help you exceed your training goals. Ready to take the next step? Give us a call! We’re happy to discuss your training needs and explain our different services to help you choose the best training plan for your budget, schedule and training goals.

A Strong Foundation is Key to Good Training.

All of our training programs start from the ground up. We begin by educating you, the owner, and then we focus on motivation, relationship building and our simple communication system. Our goal is to create dogs who have a good attitude towards training and owners who feel confident and empowered so that training is both effective and permanent. We care about each and every one of our clients, so we treat you and your dog the way we’d want to be treated: with patience, love and respect.
