SIRIUS K9 ACADEMY is centrally located in Orange County in the city of Yorba Linda, California and is owned and managed by Caroline Haldeman. Our highly trained and experienced staff has been educating and helping dog owners in Yorba Linda and surrounding communities attain their goals with their K9 partners for more than fifteen years! We have earned an AAA rating with the Business Consumer Alliance (BCA), an A+ rating with the BBB, and have received many accolades, awards, and positive reviews on countless sites online because we are dedicated to every client's success and we constantly strive to exceed your expectations.
We work with all breeds and all ages and offer a large variety of training options that no one else even comes close to matching because they lack the facilities, experience, and knowledge that our trainers have! Our staff is some of the best you will ever work with!
Some of the many classes we offer include Puppy Classes, Basic Obedience, Intermediate Obedience, Advanced Obedience, K9 Group Hikes, Field Trip classes, Personal Protection / Security K9 Training, Detection / Search Training, Therapy Dog Training, Tracking, Competition Obedience Training, Remote Collar Training, Nail Trimming Classes, K9 Safety Classes, and CGC (Canine Good Citizen) Training.
We offer Private One-On-One Custom Lessons at your home, office, or at our location! The location and time is up to you!
We also provide low-stress In-Kennel Training (Boot Camp Style Training!) What seperates us from everyone else, all the dogs we take in for training for our clients stay at the homes of our trainers and we limit the number of dogs we take in so every dog in our care gets a ton of attention!
Certifications we offer include Advanced Protection Dog (APD), TDI (Therapy Dog International) Therapy Dog, AKC CGC (Canine Good Citizen), and Sirius K9 PDT (Professional Dog Trainer.)
Some of the unique seminars that we provide to our clients are R.A.T. (Rattlesnake Aversion Training), Decoy Training, and Pet First Aid / CPR Training, to name just a few.
We have several private outdoor training locations throughout Yorba Linda for our obedience classes, as well SEVERAL ENORMOUS BUILDINGS in Orange County (each are over 20,000 sq ft in size) which no one else has access to except us (and the local police K9s!) We use these buildings for our protection, detection, and human scent search training classes, which only we offer! With these outstanding training facilities, you can train your dog safely day or night and do things with your dog that you cant do anywhere else!
We offer BALANCED TRAINING! We encourage our clients to use verbal and physical praise and treats and toys to motivate and reward their dogs, as well as a training collar to reinforce all formal commands and correct negative behavior. We also encourage our clients to use a different language when training their dogs. We use a variety of training techniques and are up-to-date on the latest training tools and methods. We know that every client and dog is different, so we are flexible to meet your situation and needs.
Our obedience, protection, search, CGC, and therapy dog training standards are unmatched in the industry and our training sessions are always fun, challenging, and rewarding. If you want to develop an awesome relationship with your K9 partner while having fun working your dog at incredible training locations, and you want your dog to respond to your commands reliably, even with difficult distractions, then you have come to the right place!
Whether your dog is a strong powerful working dog or a timid shy dog (or somewhere in between), is big or small, young or old, let us help your dog reach its potential and make them a pleasure to own. Our goal is to help every dog become neutral to the environment (including to other dogs and people) and improve and broaden every handler's skills and knowledge so that they can become a confident, savvy, and responsible dog owner.
We specialize in German and Czech Shepherds and other highly driven working breeds, such as Rottweilers, Doberman Pinschers, Belgian Malinois, and Dutch Shepherds. Our specialties include many rare breeds, as well as herding, hunting, and bully breeds. We also have a lot of experience with timidness, fearfulness, dominant, and aggressive behavior.
We can help you quickly resolve many common behavior issues such as jumping, excessive barking, digging, nipping/mouthing, potty accidents in the house, running away, pulling on the leash, stealing things, and destructive behavior.
We proudly offer discounts to current Teachers, Nurses, EMTs, to Rescue & Shelter dogs (from rescues and shelters that work with us) and to their Volunteers, Veterinarians, Vet Techs, Vet Assistants, Groomers, Law Enforcement, Fire, and to our Military!... THANK YOU for your service and for all that you do!!!!
