About Training with
Imagine Canine Academy
Imagine Canine Academy is a company focused on increasing the bond between humans and their dogs. Reinforcement comes in many forms and when working with each dog, we focus on what the best reward is for each particular dog. When using a dog's senses to train them, dogs respond best to scent, then sight, and then sound. We train with reward based training in order to encourage the bond between a dog and their handler.
Imagine Canine Academy offers behavior modification and customized training plans for each client and dog. We focus on spending time with each client to understand what their goals are with their dog. Whether you are looking for your dog to be the perfect home companion, to join you on every adventure, or to have a foundation for dog sports, we can help you! Through the use of clickers and an exciting primary reinforcer for the dog, the learning process is fun for everyone!
