Dog Training Courses

Fetch Club


Welcome to our enrichment daycare! This level of structured small group play was developed for dogs that thrive in smaller social settings or struggle navigating their own arousal levels in a typical large group play environment. Fetch Club works to meet both the physical & mental needs of your dog with plenty of rest & relaxation periods between exercises & activities. Each dog is sent home with a Ruff Report to give a direct recap of their day to their parents!

Day Academy

$675/4 week session

Dog school is in session! Day Academy takes place 2 different days during the week, over the course of 4 weeks. Let us work on establishing the foundations while you just worry about when to pick them up! Between sessions, students get to enjoy small group play with other Day Academy students, enriching games that work their brain, as well as plenty of rest & relaxation breaks. Students begin with our Rookie curriculum & once they graduate, have the option to continue further education in our Intermediate curriculum. Homework is given to parents at the end of each week via video format through our private Facebook group.

Lodge & Learn


Give your dog a vacation like getaway at Aloha Academy! Your dog receives lessons 5 days a week for 4 weeks, while they remain overnight with us. We take full rein for a while so we can return your dog more confident & obedient. This course aims to spend plenty of time generalizing cues in various environments to set them up for success while working in the real world! Monday through Friday, dogs spend their day learning through multiple individual lessons, participate in small group play alongside Day Academy friends, have enriching games that work their brain, as well as plenty of rest & relaxation breaks. Enrollment in this course requires 50% deposit prior to the start date
