How Nova K9 Academy Works

Our training works on dogs of all ages, breeds and sizes. Our balanced training technique has worked on every dog we have worked with, improving the owner-dog relationship for each and every one of our clients.

Dogs have an attention span between 5 and 20 minutes, and training sessions any longer than this will slow your dogs learning. Throughout each day, we’ll build off the foundation that we set for your dog. Nearly everything we do is a training opportunity for your dog, and your dog will have consistent lessons throughout the morning, day and evening. Throughout your dog’s board and train, they will have our outmost attention, to ensure a successful result.

After Training:

Consistency matters after training. For example, I can give you a Ferrari, a beautiful and fast sports car, but if you don’t know how to drive it, you’ll shred the gear box, crash it, and/or not use it how it was intended. The same goes for your dog. Poor habits and behaviors your dog has learned or inherited will be gone, but we need to make sure the old habits die hard. That’s why we’ll give you a 30-day formula to ensure your success with your newly trained and well behaved dog.


Improve Communication with your Dog

As we complete the finishing touches on your dog, we’ll show you all our tips and techniques in our walk through. The feeling of your dog ignoring your commands will happen no more, and your dog will love you more for it.

Best Board & Train in Northern Virginia

Here at NOVA Canine Academy, we have the best board and train program in Northern Virginia. We’ll train your K9 in obedience, improving your relationship with your dog. We use our balanced training method, otherwise known as the Koehler Method.


A Personalized Experience

Your dog will be in a small-group with one other dog. No large groups, all the attention on your dog. We work with you to come up with the best possible outcome for the program.
