WHAT'S HAPPENING THIS WEEK:

BOARD AND TRAIN
Board and Train. Hmmm what is that???
There is lots of negative comment about board and train nowadays so why do we offer this at the prestigious "K9" Academy??
Well that's because at "K9" we do things differently! Only a very limited number of dogs are booked at any one time because they live in our home with us and our dogs while we train. But that's not all!!! When we are finished with the training we then train YOU and reintroduce your dog back into your home and your lifestyle to make sure that our training is generalised in a way that your precious dog can understand.
Life is busy. Time runs away with us. Before you look again that cute 12 week pup has grown up and is now an 18 month "teenager". All your best intentions to attend training classes or follow YouTube training has just gotten away from you. That cute puppy is now jumping on everyone, running away, not coming when called or simply is just bored and destructive.
K9 Academy has the perfect solution for you and your pup (no
matter the age) - board and train. Your beloved pet stays with us
for a period of 3 weeks + (depending on their needs) and we start the
training program with your dog.
The package is tailored to your needs and that of the dog but will cover the basics:
Unique training plan
Initial one-on-one consult
End of stay consult
What's App videos to show you how well your pup is settling in.
dog staying with us becomes part of our pack and their happiness and
safety becomes our priority. It's never too early or too late to
achieve the ultimate relationship between you and your dog. Please note we do insist on training time with you and your dog, preferably in your home environment, to make sure that all the training cues are properly transferred to you. It is not possible to just drop your dog and have it come home perfect AND then remain perfect if you do not put in the required work.

What People Say
"My dog adores Moira from K9 Academy. Since our first puppy class 5 years ago, through to CGC, agility and even dancing with Holly, we have learnt so much. Moira's approach is filled with lots of fun, heaps of praise, patience and a true understanding of dog behaviour. If I have to go away, I know that K9 Academy will look after my pets with the same love they give their own animals."Emily & Holly
"Moira and K9 Academy have been fantastic in walking us through training. Garmin passed his CGC Bronze with flying colours ! Moira is always ready to help and quide us through everything from house training and all the way up to our CGC tests and dance classes ! Garmin is a perfect gentlemen whom I can take anywhere with me and I owe it all to Moira and her team. He has a home away from home when I need to go away as well. Thank you !!!

"Moira and the whole K9 Academy team are amazing. When I started with Moira 2 years ago, never did I think I would be where I am today. From a reactive Australian Cattle Dog puppy who is now part of the new K9 dancing group, without Moira's continuous help in our early days and her incredible dedication, I would never be where I am now. I now have a German Shepard as well, and I cannot wait to see what lies ahead for her. You definitely can't go wrong training or boarding your dogs with Moira and the K9 team. Thank you is simply not enough for what you have done for me and my two special girls !!!

"My girls, Misty and Breeze, were a handful. Let's face it....no one wants to admit that their pets are not perfect angels but I had problems with jumping, leash pulling, no recall and the concern of leaving my girls home alone while I worked. Then I met Moira and her team and my prayers were answered. I am proud to say I am now able to walk my dogs on a single lead and even enjoyed a holiday at the beach with perfect recall. Moira is AMAZING and thanks to her encouragement, patience and advise I have well mannered girls and have fun training ! Thank you K9 Academy.

The Beast and I started training with Moria 6 years ago and we have never stopped!
We have done puppy school : attack training : dancing classes : Good Citizen and agility.
The Beast has also been helped by Moria and Derek with their hydo treatment.
It is because of Moira's dedication, experience and knowledge that The Beast has been able to have such a wonderful life - The Beast travels EVERYWHERE with me and is welcome wherever we go as he really is so clever and well behaved.
We have traveled extensively within South Africa as well as overseas to England where we spent a year traveling the entire length of the country!
Moira makes learning fun for the dogs and the humans - She is passionate about the dogs and they love her!!
