Day Training Programs

Our day training programs are the ultimate way to developing an excellent relationship with your furry companion. It provides the ideal combination between professional training and hands on experiences for you. Building excellent communication skills results in mutual understanding and trust between you and your dog. Now you can become the confident leader you're dog has always desired! 


We offer various day training programs to fit individual training needs. 

When you choose one of our popular day training programs, your dog will spend several days a week with us. Your dog will be picked up and dropped off at your home on training days. 

​All dogs are taken out to highly distractive environments during any day training program. This results in a well behaved dog that stays focused on you and doesn't get overwhelmed while being out in real life situations, like busy stores, patios, the local park or events. 

You can rest assured that your dog is receiving exceptional training and care with us. You will receive regular updates and pictures throughout your dog's days with us. We make this commitment to you because we understand how much your furry family member means to you! 

Benefits of our day training programs:

- While receiving full time training, your dog stays the night at the comfort of your home;

- We train in high distraction environments, we set your dog up for real life situations and success;

Behavioral Modification

Sometimes your dog shows behavior that you don't want to see. We understand that and we are here to help. We will help you identify the behaviors and create a custom program for you and your dog. 

Has your dog changed its behavior lately? Has it growled, bitten, or snapped at anyone? Do you not trust your dog completely? Or is your dog just very shy in new environments or with other dogs or people? Is your dog counter-surfing or putting its nose in the trashcan? Is your dog eliminating in the house? We are here to help you to get over any concern you may have. We will not leave your side until your specific problem is fixed.

Dutchess Canine Academy offers high quality customized obedience training and behavior modification for your lovely dog! We are here to help you reach your goals to a perfect, well behaved and balanced furry best friend!


Dutchess Canine Academy is an up and coming dog training academy that is ran by two professionals, Jeanne and Matthew. 

Dutchess Canine Academy gets its name from the owner, Jeanne. The typical spelling of Dutchess is actually Duchess, which is the word for a woman holding a rank equivalent to a Duke in her own right. But Jeanne was born and raised in the Netherlands and didn't move to the U.S. until September of 2016. The native language to her country is Dutch, therefore we personalized the name of the company to include a bit of her homeland.

Jeanne is a certified Master Dog Trainer. Her journey in becoming a dog trainer started in Maysville, Georgia at Custom Canine Unlimited in 2016. She completed training there to become a certified obedience trainer. She continued her education in Harmony, North Carolina at Highland Canine Training in 2017. The training at Highland Canine attributed to her obtaining her Master Dog Trainer certification. Besides learning more about obedience training and behavior modification, she also learned how to train service dogs, police K9's, and search and rescue dogs.


Matthew holds the title of a certified Master Dog Trainer as well. His passion for dog training began at a very young age in Springfield, Ohio. In 2010 he attended Penn Foster and received his diploma for dog trainer and behaviorist. From 2011 - 2016 he actively served in the US Army as a military police officer. He worked closely with military working dogs during this time. In 2017 he continued his training at Highland Canine Training in Harmony, NC. This is where he obtained his Master Dog Trainer certification.   

Dutchess Canine Academy is specialized in obedience training and behavior modification for your dog. Together with you, we customize your dog's training program, so it will always fit you and your dog's needs!
