Local Business Spotlight:
Delaware K9 Academy

We love supporting another small, local business so we wanted to share the love with an incredibly dog training company located here in Wilmington. They have been voted BEST dog training company in the state and have a spotless reputation. They truly put their clients first and get exceptional results with the dogs they work with. 

We’ll let them take over from here to talk about what they offer and how they can help you and your dog succeed! Their primary focus is obedience while enhancing communication, structure, boundaries, and can help to dramatically improve confidence with nervous dogs. Keep on reading to learn more about this incredible company, Delaware K9 Academy.

Basic & Advance Obedience

Here at Delaware K9 Academy we focus on the basics to help enhance communication between the owner and their dog. So many dogs are confused and run wild due to a lack of structure and clear communication, so that is typically where we start. We offer a private lesson program that will truly help to enhance anybody’s relationship with their dog. Our private lessons are conducted in our climate-controlled facility so you and your dog will feel comfortable and relaxed. We’ll work with your dog, then teach you how to do the same so you can practice each day between your lessons. Staying on track is key, so there needs to be some commitment to practice each day!

Our other program is a 2-week Boot Camp board and train program where we will take your pup for 14 days. We’ll work with them on and off throughout the day for the 2 weeks, send you plenty of updates, then teach you everything you need to know when you come to pick up your dog! This program is much more immersive and we’ll do all the work for you, setting up extremely clear boundaries and teaching your dog what is expected of them. You’ll still need to maintain what we teach, but it’s much easier than starting from scratch.

Getting The Job Done

We pride ourselves on getting results. We pride ourselves on building a great reputation that clients can trust. We always recommend that potential clients read through our reviews on Google to see what others have said about us. We can certainly say we are the best, but what do our past clients think about us? 

We treat all of our clients like family and we would never leave somebody out to dry once training is completed. We often stay in contact with our clients to make sure everything is going well and no new problems are arising. Dog training is a constant exercise that owners need to be aware of. Training is not a one-and-done program, but a lifetime of communicating and leading.

Improve Your Relationship

Dogs need structure in order to be successful. They are like toddlers, so if they have too much freedom, they will almost always make the wrong choice. Well, at least in our eyes. If we can provide clear communication, expectations, and boundaries for our dog, they will be extremely successful. If you are currently dealing with nuisance behaviors like jumping on guests, jumping on counters, digging holes in the yard, it may be due to that fact that you have not set up clear expectations for your pup. 

Dog training can dramatically improve your relationship with your dog. They will begin to see you as a leader – not an “alpha” which is a training method of the past. We want to lead our dogs and show them that we have their back. We can help to build their trust in you and lead them to success. 

Final Thoughts

Dog training can be very challenging, especially if you have a dog for the first time. You can watch hundreds of videos online and still struggle to train your dog because of how different each dog is. If you need help, let us know and we would love to come up with game plan that works for you!
