    Dog Obedience Training by
    Virginia's Dog Trainer!

    Canine Obedience, Problem Resolution, Dog Aggression, Behavior Modification and more.
    Auburn Leach is a certified, professional dog trainer in Virginia who has trained more than 2,500 dogs (and their owners) since 1996. The secret to trust and companionship, and effective family and home canine protection, is an investment in your dog's personalized training

    Whether for basic or advanced dog obedience training, security & protection, companionship or problem resolution, the Auburn Leach K-9 Academy (ALK9) of Virginia can help.

    Auburn will work with dogs other trainers won't, mainly due to aggression. He believes there is rarely a dog who cannot be rehabilitated through proper training, consistent reinforcement and attention. Some of Auburn's successful past clients have included dogs for  whom animal behaviorists and veterinarians had recommended euthanasia because of their behavior problems.

    ALK9 dog obedience training focuses on the "praise" method with verbal, hand and leash commands.  We do not use food rewards or fear tactics! We also work with people!  You and your family will be personally instructed on how to handle your newly trained dog and how to reinforce good behavior patterns.

    The Auburn Leach K9 Academy is located in Stuarts Draft, VA in the beautiful Shenandoah Valley. With both indoor and outdoor training facilities available, we are open year-round in all weather.


    Our "Boot Camp" is a board/train program that runs a minimum of two weeks and focuses on:
    • Obedience
    • Heel
    • Sit
    • Stay
    • Down
    • Come When Called

    • Good Manners
    • Problem Resolution

    • Socialization & Anti-Social Behavior
    • Companionship Enhancement

    All problem resolution begins with a personal, hands-on, one-to-one examination by Auburn Leach, USDTA Registered Trainer.  Auburn brings more than 20 years of canine training experience to American K9 Academy.
