Dog Training San Antonio, Tx

We are Ivy League Canine Academy, Professional dog training company in San Antonio, Tx, Offering Dog Training, Obedience Training, Puppy Training, and Much More!

Our comprehensive “board and train” program is the perfect solution for busy dog owners who don’t have time for lessons and want us to do the work for you. Your dog will stay with us for a period of time, receiving individualized attention and training from our Owner and ONLY trainer. We’ll work with your dog on a wide range of skills and behaviors, from basic obedience commands to more advanced OFF LEASH commands.

What Sets Us Apart from Other Dog Training Companies​

OFF LEASH Recall Reliability

Unleash your dogs potential and give them the freedom to be off leash. Even if you don’t plan to have your dog loose off leash, the RELIABILITY of your commands is much higher even in the home or on walks with the leash with our training system.  

All Training Guaranteed for Life

We guarantee our services 100 percent. If you find that your dog has regressed for ANY REASON we will make sure we get your pup 100% again. Customer satisfaction is our #1 goal.

Distractions Training

We train under high levels of distractions. Much different than sitting quietly in a room with a treat in hand doing obedience. We EXPECT your dog to perform the commands even while around dogs, people, strangers, traffic etc..

Free Refresher Training Anytime

If you have any future issues after your dog is trained we will gladly schedule a lesson to work with you and figure out how to get your pup back on track.

Training in Home

We also conduct our training sessions within the comfort of our own homes, ensuring that we create an environment that closely resembles where your dog spends the majority of its time. Our goal is to develop a well-rounded dog that is not only well-behaved indoors but also able to handle outdoor situations with various distractions.

Exclusive Group Class

We offer a monthly refresher class exclusive only to prior clients. The focus is to work with your dogs around other trained dogs under the supervision of our trainers.

Puppy Training

Puppy training is very important in developing a confident and obedient dog.

Board and Train

Our board and train program is perfect for clients who want fast results.
