We offer exciting new dog training at Sunview Park and Central Broward Regional Park.
Teach your dog what you want him to learn without prong or choke collars.
Learn shaping and positive reinforcement techniques.
At American Idogs Academy we will help your dog with one of his biggest problem…YOU!
Yes, dog training can be difficult. It’s a lot like raising children in some ways – it requires some patience and doesn’t always happen as quickly as we’d like. So we will help you to teach him. And if you really take the time to try to understand how your pet thinks, you can make sure that your relationship will have a better ending.
Don’t forget that if you learn what “makes them tick,” then the process of dog training will be much simpler and much more successful.
And who knows? If you’re having amazing progress you could become one of our AMERICAN-IDOGS Elite show team member!
