AKC Canine Good Citizen Certification

Basic Obedience is not only the starting point in Dog Training and on the journey to a well adjusted and well mannered dog, it is also a critical aspect of the deep and respectful bond we all aspire to have with our family pets. Here at The Academy we show you step by step, exactly how to achieve the reliable obedience that fosters that loving & respectful bond.

We offer private "in-your-home" lessons throughout the Pioneer Valley as well as small group classes at both Wagging Tails Pet Resort in Hadley MA. and at Wagging Tails at Heritage Ranch in Easthmapton, MA. Our classes also include the coveted AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy and Canine Good Citizen certifications.

All Basic Obedience Training packages result in the establishment of a life-long communication system, an unparalleled education in dog training protocols and Behaviorology, and your dog learning the skills requisite to having a happy life in our human dominated world.
