 Russell’s K9 Academy was the perfect fit for our 3 month old hound puppy. He was extremely knowledgeable in everything that we asked, explained the purpose served of each training activity, and gave our puppy lots of love. We are extremely thankful that we found him! We did the in home training session, but will also be attending the obedience lessons as well. Thank you Russell’s K9 Academy for setting our puppy up for success!!

I was at my wits end with the 4th addition to our dog family. Skipper was my latest rescue and he has severe separation anxiety. His behavior was causing problems with my 4 year old yorkie. I reached out to Russell's K9 Academy. The transformation with all my dogs was almost immediate. I want to point out all of my dogs are under 10 pounds. So if you think that he only handles larger dogs, think again. Please don't wait, contact Russell's K9 Academy now.

Once again Albert rode in on his Ford to save the day! Our littlest fur baby Dino, is having a had time with the concept of NO and Slow Down. Dino has 1 speed FAST! Albert showed up today and adjusted his gears. It just amazes me that when Albert shows up they play together and then fall asleep. We have brought Dino out with the other dogs 2 more times today, and to our surprise it worked the same way for us tonight! Albert just brings magic to handling your fur babies. And yes Albert I survived, and with my eyes open.

Like others I had a problem with my dog (Abbey) lunging at other dogs. I did have another trainer at much expense and we never got the problem resolved. I went to the dog park for just 1 lesson (for VERY LITTLE expense) and after 1 week (1 WEEK) my dog stopped lunging at other dogs.

Now I can enjoy walking with my dog and not have to worry about lunging and what appeared to be aggressive behavior. (it was not, as Albert explained to me). SO, don’t give up on your dog, go to Albert Russell.
