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!
