Hutch and Lacey learn to put away their toys during a Tidy Up Workshop at MJ's Pet Training Academy

Our students come to us for many reasons. Some may be concerned with their pet's behavior, others may be preparing for competition or therapy work, while many just want to have fun bonding with their animals. Through private training we can help you with obedeince, problem-solving, manners, and even tricks and sports. Whether you want to learn how to raise your new puppy, train your dog to listen better or teach complex tricks and behaviors, we are here to help. Choose from a quick and fast -paced Power Training Session or a full Standard Session.



Group Practice

Group practice sessions at MJ's Pet Training Academy are a great way to work on distraction work and proofing. We have classes in pet manners and obedience. Your private instructor will help you make the transition to the right group classes when you and your dog are ready to give it a try. 


Workshops and Courses

We host a variety of workshops and courses for both pet owners, professional trainers, and professional groomers. All of our workshops have unique prerequisite requirements, duration, and fees. As an MJ's student, your trainer will keep you notified when there is an upcoming workshop that you might be interested in, or email for a current event list. 


Want to Do Even more for your dog?

Our Goal is to Provide as Many Dogs as We Can With a Job...

We believe every dog should have a job. When dogs have a job and a purpose, negative behavior starts to decrease. Every dog and every family is unique. Training just for the purpose of training might feel like a chore, but wouldn't it be fun to teach your dog to retrieve your keys, find hidden items, be a partner to the kids while they do their homework, or get the mail?

In addition to training the basics, if you would like to learn more about jobs that are right for your dog, please fill out the form below and we will be in touch to tell you more about jobs for dogs.
