A Strong Foundation is Key to Good Training.

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?
