In the summer of 1991, I was a police officer working with local K9 unit handlers to track a murder suspect.
The talent of these dogs intrigued me. They had an incredible drive for pursuit and their tracking and scent work abilities were beyond anything I had ever thought possible.
Eventually, I became a K9 handler before becoming a master trainer. I loved my job.
After 15 years of working with police K9s and 8 years training them as a master trainer, I decided that some good things must come to an end and retired from the police force.
But I couldn’t stay away from dog training for long.
After getting constant requests from friends and family to help them with their dogs, I made a decision.
It was time to start dog training again.
…and that’s where Alan’s K9 Academy comes in.
Dog training is different at Alan’s K9 Academy.
Most Atlanta area dog trainers use the same methodology over and over again. No matter the dog’s personality & motivation, they use the exact same training methods.
The truth is, there’s no such thing as “one size fits all” dog training.
Why? Because all dogs are different.
Every dog has their own personality, temperament, skillset, & struggles. Every owner has a different lifestyle, training goals, and dreams for their dog.
It doesn’t make sense to try to train all dogs using the exact same methods.
When you work with Alan’s K9 Academy, we’ll use a variety of different training approaches to help your dog learn new skills and behavior. No cookie cutter training here!
Your training will be custom designed to fit your dog, your lifestyle, & your training goals.
