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.

We offer 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 with 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 Universal language is a result of poor socialization during the puppy stage of life by mixing the puppy with many different breeds because some breeds their universal language has been removed due to breeding
but one thing they all have in common, and it's hardwired in their brains, is the Universal Law that governs pack behavior according to the pack's Hierarchy's pecking order.

I am a Third Generation Certified 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 five years old. As a young boy, I had a passion for working with dogs, and as I grew older into my teenage years, my love for working with man's best friend grew even more robust, 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 Virginia 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. My Grandfather had trained championship hunting dogs and Competition swimming dogs for many years. 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.

I then had the privilege of working with a K9 Trainer who retired from the Military who served in the Vietnam War. He trained Dogs for the Military, and I had the privilege of working hands-on, starting with my personal dog named Dino. Dino was a Shephard mix for personal protection. We started into basic obedience and then moved into advanced off-leash obedience training while Dino was being prepared and promoted into K9 Protection work.

After Dino graduated from his training, I had the privilege to continue working with the Trainer for 2 1/2 years. Unfortunately, my Trainer and Teacher passed away due to cancer. I am very grateful for having the opportunity to work with him.

As a Univeral dog trainer, my training covers Classical and Operant Conditioning,reward-based training systems, and Verbal Markers' use for communication. I also focus on building behavior through luring, spatial pressure, "leash pressure for shaping behavior, and more.......
