Welcome and Introduction

Welcome to the blog for National Academy for Dogs LLC, a dog training business located in Central Florida. My name is Lindsey and I am an owner and pet dog trainer for National Academy for Dogs. I have over five years of experience training dogs and am a graduate of the Karen Pryor Academy Dog Trainer Program. My plan is to use this blog to post articles, news and tips on training and behavior, as well as other updates related to our business. If you live in the Orlando area and are interested in working with a professional trainer face to face, please visit our website to find out more information on programs, pricing, and contact information.

Here at National Academy for Dogs we believe dog training is more than just getting the behaviors you want, it's about forming a bond and understanding with your pet. We strive to teach pet owners using techniques that are humane, up to date, and effective. By combining the latest in scientific research on behavior with the experience of working with dogs in real life situations we create practical training plans for all sorts of pet owners and their dogs. The results mean not only a well trained dog, but an amazing understanding between dog and owner that creates a life long bond.

  3. I am posting this comment as requested for Beth. Check out her awesome blog here:

    So glad to see a positive training blog out there! For your reader Mary and others, Temple Grandin has just come out with a new book called Animals Make Us Human - I'd say a Must Read! There seems to be a quiet force growing among animal scientists to address the emotional needs of animals. Once the importance of understanding the emotional needs of animals is understood, perhaps the old fashioned aversive based training will be extinguished.
