Tony has always had a love for dogs. He originally completed his bachelor's degree in Law Enforcement so he could work with K9 units. He has been working with his own dogs since 2013 and began working professionally as a trainer in 2015. He currently has three dogs of his own: a black Husky, Jax, who is trained in duck and pheasant hunting; a German Shepard mix named Tyson; and his newest addition to the pack, Blue, a German Shepard Husky mix who will be trained as a search and rescue canine.
Tony has completed his United K9 Academy course and received his Trainer's Certification. He now proudly runs the Arlington area franchise.
BOARD AND TRAIN PROGRAMS
Our board and train program will take place in the trainer's home and will allow for more one on one time between your pet and their trainer. During this time, you will receive updates on their progress. Your dog will work in an in home environment as well as outside the home (parks, dog friendly stores, etc.) When the Board and Train concludes, your trainer will teach you what has been taught to your furry friend. This will be held at either at the trainers home or in your home. This will help you keep your dog sharp and continue his training. Your trainer will reach out to you after the training has concluded to check on your dog and his assimilation back into his home. The trainer will schedule a follow up session if needed. You will need to continue your companion';s training by reinforcing what United K9 Academy has taught you both. We are available for any questions anytime.
