Why Choose Sequoyah K9 Academy?


We are educated. With very little regulation regarding dog training credentials and certifications, anyone can claim that they are a dog trainer these days. Rest assured that you aren't hiring just "anyone" with Sequoyah K9 Academy. All of our trainers are Certified Master Trainers through North State K9 Academy and all possess a Bachelor's degree or higher. We are proud members of the International Association of Canine Professionals, and we stay current on the latest methods, techniques, and theories to ensure that we are the last trainers you'll ever need. 


We are experienced. With over 23 years of combined, full-time experience in the industry, we've had the opportunity to work with thousands of dogs (and their owners) from all walks of life! What does this mean for you? It means we have enough experience to adapt our methods to your dog. It means you will receive a customized training plan that addresses you and your dog's specific needs. It means you won't receive a cookie-cutter curriculum that isn't actually helpful.


We are effective. With education and experience comes effectiveness. We've had the time to fine-tune our skills and programs to offer you training options that work. From severe behavioral cases to mouthy puppies, we've created solutions for owners just like you and for dogs just like yours. We'd love to do the same for you.  


We are honest. We truly want to be the last trainer you'll ever need so, if we feel that we can't solve your problem, we are 100% going to tell you up front. Some behavioral issues can only be managed, not fixed. If this is the case with your dog, we are going to tell you. Our intake process is lengthy. We want to make sure we can help you and meet your expectations BEFORE we begin working with you to ensure that the end result is a happy one for all involved! 


We care. Believe it or not, we were beginners once too. We had "problem" dogs and didn't know where to start in terms of training. We remember those feelings of frustration, and we truly want to help you and your dog find harmony together. Nothing brings us greater joy than hearing stories from past-clients about how much fun they're having with their dog(s) post-training... We want that to be your story too!
