WELCOME TO SIRIUS K9 ACADEMY!
SIRIUS K9 ACADEMY is centrally located in Orange County in Yorba Linda, California. Sirius K9 is owned and operated by Caroline Haldeman. She has been training dogs professionally for over 24 years. Her many years of experience in training dogs for advanced obedience, competition, personal protection, police, detection, and search work motivated her to open Sirius K9 Academy so that she could offer the public more then the standard low-quality, over-priced, and generally unreliable training offered elsewhere. We gaurantee that both you and your dog will learn a lot at Sirius K9 Academy and you will get your money's worth here!
We use a variety of training techniques and are always up-to-date on the latest training tools, devices, and methods. Caroline and her highly trained and experienced staff have been proudly educating and helping dog owners attain their goals with their K9 partners for the past 10 years at Sirius K9 Academy.
We believe that motivation is the key when training dogs. With proper motivation, your dog can learn what is and what is not acceptable behavior much more quickly and become the kind of dog you want them to be. We incorporate a combination of positive consequences (using verbal & physical praise, treats, and toy play) and negative consequences (using verbal, leash, and training collar corrections) into our training methods and we will teach you how to apply them correctly when interacting with your dog. It is absolutely necessary for dogs to experience both consequences in order to become a well-adjusted,
well-behaved, reliable, and a much more balanced dog. A dog that never experiences negative consequences for bad behavior, ignoring your commands, or even worse, for aggressive behavior, is not just a nuisance and is unpredictable and unreliable, but is also a liability!
Our obedience, protection, and therapy dog training standards are unmatched in the industry and our training sessions are always fun, challenging, and rewarding. If you want your dog to respond to your commands reliably, even with difficult distractions, then you have come to the right place! We are dedicated to every client's success and constantly strive to exceed your expectations. We have earned an AAA rating with the Business Consumer Alliance, and we have received the Best Of Business Award four times.
We offer a large and unique variety of classes (puppy, basic, intermediate, and advanced obedience), clicker, protection, detection, and therapy dog training, private lessons (at your home or at our location), seminars, and many certifications. We also offer one-of-kind low-stress boarding and in-kennel training for our clients. (The dogs we board stay at our trainer's homes!) We have several private outdoor training locations, so you can train your dog safely night or day!
Whether your dog is big or small, young or old, let us help your dog reach its potential and make them a pleasure to own. Our goal is to help every dog become NEUTRAL to the environment (including to other dogs and people) and improve and broaden every handler's skills and knowledge so that they can become a confident, savvy, and responsible dog owner.
We specialize in German & Czech Shepherds and other strong working breeds, such as Rottweilers, Dobermans, Malinois, and Dutch Shepherds. Our specialties also include herding, hunting, bully, and many rare breeds, as well as as timidness, fearfulness, dominance, and aggressive behavior. We can also help you quickly resolve many common behavior issues such as jumping, excessive barking, digging, nipping/mouthing, potty accidents, running away, pulling on the leash, stealing things, and destructive behavior.
We offer large discounts to any dog adopted from a rescue organization or shelter. We also proudly offer discounts to our Law Enforcement, Fire, and Military!... THANK YOU to all of you serving our country!!!!
