Issue: Kira, a 1 year-old German Shepherd, was not listening to her owners. She was jumping, nipping, and having trouble walking on a leash.
How We Helped: During our Dog Board & Train Program, we set boundaries for Kira. We taught her a solid foundation of obedience and to listen to all of her commands through clear communication. Her confidence increased and her owner now understands how to channel all of her energy in a positive way.
From the Owner: “My 1 year old German Shepherd, Kira, went through the 2-week board and train program and I can’t say enough good things about this place. By no means did I have a bad dog I just had a dog with a lot of anxiety and no boundaries or structure. Upstate Canine Academy gave my dog the basics of being trained along with the confidence of knowing she is a good dog. When I picked her up from the 2 week stay she was a whole new dog in the best way. She listened better, knew her basic commands and found a way to channel her puppy energy. It was mind blowing really. The trainer Zach is wonderful, upon pick up he worked with Kira and I for an hour on everything she’s learned and gave me the confidence of going home with a newly trained dog. The great thing about UCA is they do lifetime follow up appointments. If you have ANY questions at all they answer them right away, you can even drop in on classes if your dog needs a tune up! I cannot thank UCA enough for giving me and my pup tools to live peacefully! FOREVER GRATEFUL 10/10 would recommend UCA to anyone!”
