Where no Dog is Left Behind
About Us
Hi friends and dog lovers, Russell's K9 Academy is a Family owned and operated Dog Training business, here in Sunny Daytona Beach, Florida, servicing all of Central Florida. I'm a Third Generation Certified Dog Trainer and Behavioral Specialist. My mission is that No Dog should be Left Behind. We specialize in K9 Training and Behavior Modification and offer personalized services for you and your dog.

The services that we offer are Basic Obedience, Advanced Off Leash Obedience Training and K9 Rehabilitation for all life stages and all Breeds. Puppies, Adolescent dogs, Adult dogs and Senior dogs.  

The K9 Rehabilitation Program is designed for dogs that have Dominance Aggression, Dominance Possessive Aggression, Fearful Aggression, Red Zone Dogs, Dog Abuse, Phobias, Anxiety, Obsessions/Fixation, Hyperactive and Low Self Esteem Dogs and for Military Dogs with PTSD coming back from Warfare.

We can train at your home on your dog's own turf or at the Academy for a bootcamp. Most K9 Rehabilitation is done here at my bootcamp which teaches them communication by interaction with other dogs.

A lot of times, aggression towards other dogs is simply due to a lack of understanding their own language is a result of poor socialization during the puppy stage of life and undeveloped psychology.

I am a Third Generation Dog Trainer and I have been working with Man's Best Friend since I was a young boy. I started by owning my first dog when I was 5 years old. My Grandfather was a Competition Dog Trainer and a Gun Dog Trainer as well as my Father was trained by my Gradfather. As a young boy, I had a passion to work with dogs and as I grew older into my teenage years, my passion to work with man's best friend grew even stronger and we as a family never had less than 20 dogs and they were all Work dogs. The dogs were used for Sport and Competition hunts and my Grandfather would go on competition hunts in Maryland and Virgina to challenge other competitors. My Grandfather's dogs were trained in Competition Hunts and his Grand Nite Championship dogs were the envy of his competitors because they would always work on command. My Grandfather had trained chamionship hunting dogs and Competition swimming dogs for many years and I learned by watching and observing my Grandfather and Father handle and work with complete passion towards training and preparing their dogs for success. My father loved the fact that I had so must Passion for Dogs that he started conditioning me to become a trainer when I was 13 years old. Dad I just want to say thank you for everything that you have done me and that I LOVE YOU and I know you and Grandpop are witching from Heaven Love you Both and miss you. Thank you both for helping and grooming me to become the man that I am.

I then had the privilege of working with a K9 Trainer who retired from the Military who served in the Vietnam War. He trained Devil Dogs for the Military and I had the privilege of working hands on starting out with my personal dog named Dino. Dino was a Shephard mix for personal protection. We started out into basic obedience and then moved into advanced obedience before Dino was tested and promoted into K9 Protection Training.

I had the privilege after Dino graduated from his training to continue on working with the Trainer for 2 1/2 years. Unfortunately my Trainer and Teacher passed away due to cancer from Agent Orange that was used by the U.S. Military as part of its herbicidal warfare progam during the Vietnam War. I am very grateful and thankful of having the opportunity to work with him.
