We are very happy to have found Upstate Canine Academy for Oakley, our 3 year old German Shepard. Thomas and everyone at Upstate Canine Academy are excellent, highly recommended for training, coaching and education! You will not be disappointed and they can accomplish challenges big and small.
Just a great group of genuinely nice people who have excellent dog training knowledge to share. Strongly recommend them for training & doggy day care needs.
I really can’t thank Tom and his amazing staff for the work they did with Nash, our 1 year old Rhodesian Ridgeback/Redbone Coonhound mix. He surprisingly developed aggression and fear towards people. It was heartbreaking, since in every other aspect he was a great dog. After 2 trainers, that truly weren’t helping his fear/aggression, we brought him to the academy for a week of Board and Train. We learned how to use the E Collar properly, and it’s the best thing we could have done. Now we can communicate better and it has helped with his anxiety when he is introduced to new people. He’s getting more confident every day!
I did a weekend of 1:1 training with Tom to work on my dogs reactive/aggressive behavior. It was such an incredible experience, Tom was able to help us and give me the tools I need as the owner of a reactive dog. We trained outside of UCA in “real world” situations which was very helpful. I cannot recommend Tom and UCA enough!
The team at Upstate Canine Academy is very knowledgeable and friendly. It was such a great experience bringing my German Shepherd and seeing how can turn from a puppy into a well trained dog. I would highly recommend bringing your puppy or dog here… it is truly life changing!
