How the Build Your Own Program Works

The Canine Academy Positive E Collar training method is broken down into five phases

Phase 1: Tell Us About Your Dog

Complete our 5- minute assessment of your dog’s personality, motivations and behavior, as well as your goals. Using this information, we will propose a detailed training plan for your review.

Phase 2: Learn the Basics

Using a combination of on-campus stays, 1:1 lessons, group learning, and in-home guidance, you and your dog will learn to communicate via the language of basic obedience. Our experienced trainers will execute your personalized training plan, and share a wealth of resources to support your success.

Phase 3: Build New Habits for Life

Your first 90 days after training are critical to establishing long-term habits for both you and your dog. All of our training programs include planned follow-ups during those 90 days. These follow up sessions will support your lifetime success, focusing on consistency and application of new skills.

Further, you retain access to our online support library for life.
