A bond that never breaks

Simple, easy to follow lessons

Wendy S.

"I loved that the videos were bite sized and focused on the key pieces of information I need to practice with my dog."

Nice balance of fun and practical material

Kelsey M.

My dog can be very reactive on leash and I thought the Petcademy recommendations were really actionable. We also loved learning 2-ball fetch!

Trainers were great!

Jasmine M.

My dog is very anxious, and the recommendations that the team made to help her calm down when friends come for dinner were excellent. We now have a plan every time new people come over!
