We do it for the love of the dog!

A properly trained dog is a happy healthy pet and nobody understands that better than Northern Sky Obedience Academy. Our goal is to provide you and your four-legged family member the best one on one dog training available in your area. All puppy and adult dog training services are individually tailored to fit your pet's personality and meet your needs.


While professional one-on-one dog training may cost more than conventional large group classes, the benefits greatly outweigh the additional investment. Large class enviorments seldom provide the results you desire due to the lack of individual attention.


The benefits of professional and individual dog training include:

* one-on-one training designed to meet your dog's personality, aptitude, social development, and your family's goals

* all of the attention during your training session will be focused on you and your dog

* training sessions can be scheduled to match your calendar

continuing assistance is always available

* you will be working with a professionally trained and experienced dog trainer who is familiar with various training methods and problem solving techniques.

* you and your dog will not get lost in the circus atmosphere of group sessions, club training or pet store classes

Whether your dog has a pedigree, was adopted from an animal shelter or neighborhood stray you fell in love with, Northern Sky Obedience Academy offers a full-line of dog training services designed to help make your best friend even better.


Leash Manners will improve your walking experience by elminating pulling, lunging and tangling 


Basic Manners/Obedience Skills teach your pet new appropriate behaviors while eliminating negative behaviors. Your dog will learn to walk politely on leash in two positions, sit, down, stay and the foundation for a reliable recall (come).  Most problem behaviors can be addressed during your sessions without additional charges.


Advanced Obedience Training prepares your dog for off leash freedom. We continue to work on the basics, work under higher distraction levels and at increased distances. As well as, introduce new skills like Sit and Down in Motion (potentially life saving skills), Finish, Stand for Exam, Place (go to bed) and more. 


Off Leash Freedom - Is the final step in the training process. We continue to assist you with all training mentioned in our Basic and Advanced sessions but at even greater distances to help you and your dog to enjoy life without the constraint of a leash.
