At the Upstate Canine Academy we offer non-traditional dog training. Our expertise in canine behavior and overall understanding of canines allow us to educate you, as the dog owner, and create a better relationship between human and dog. Learning how to communicate with your dog properly is a key component of successful dog training and we are here to help you through this process.

Our motto is NO BAD DOGS. A primary portion of our training is educating you about your dog’s behaviors and teaching you how to effectively change these behaviors. Each dog learns differently and has individual needs. Our creative training methods allow us to progress with every dog.

training packages


With private and group sessions, our training packages customize training to you and your dog. Private training focuses on specific behaviors and issues, while group sessions put you and your dog in a high distraction environment to ensure training is effective regardless of where you bring your dog.

Our training packages work on everything from:

  • Puppy foundation training
  • Basic obedience
  • Behavior Modification
  • Off leash
  • Personal protection training

This is one of our most popular training packages for those who wish to work hands-on with Thomas, but are located hours or states away. The training is customized to you and your dog and includes 5 private sessions with Thomas. The 5 sessions are done over the course of three days, training once in the morning and once in the afternoon. We have accommodating, dog-friendly hotels less than 5 miles from our facility. This is a great option for dogs that are not suited for our board & train program. *Please note there is 4-6 week wait for scheduling*
