Obedience Training - Board and Train Programs

We offer On Leash and Off Leash board and train programs.

In an On Leash program, your dog learns various commands and manners on leash. Do you want your dog to be obedient well behaved in on leash situations? Then this is a great program for you! 

Examples: On a patio, out in town, visiting friends, etc. 

Are you looking for a well behaved, obedient dog in on leash AND off leash situations? Then our Off Leash program is perfect for you! Your dog will learn everything from the On Leash program, and so much more! Your dog will obey and follow commands, even without being on a leash. 

All dogs are taken out to highly distractive environments during any board and train 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 or events.  

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.

Puppy Lessons

Do you have a puppy under six months old? Would you like to learn how to help your pup become a well mannered, social and balanced dog? We are here to teach you all the ins and outs about raising a well balanced puppy. Throughout this program you will learn how to shape desired behaviors, housebreaking and crate training techniques, a basic foundation for obedience and how to properly socialize your new member of the family.   

Private Lessons

Do you want to train your dog yourself but would like some professional help with it? Get to learn the best tips and tools with us! We can come to your house to train, meet you at a park, or you and your dog can come to our place. It's up to you and what you want. We are here to accommodate you and your dog. 

Group Classes

We offer group classes to show you our training techniques to apply in your own home. Contact us to find out when our next classes will be held.

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!
