Hi, and welcome to Canine Castle Academy on the web. If you are looking for some much needed advice, suggestions, canine counseling , class intructions, or a few fun things to do with your dog, you have just stopped at the right place.
Whether you live in our local area or another state, prefer on-line, in person, do-it-yourself, private or group training methods; We offer several services of which to choose from. In addition we offer a variety of fun filled ways to bring your dog to his or her full potential and improve handling skills while avoiding old style repetitive practices.
From howling hounds to jumping bean Jake we have been helping unruly underdogs and human companions become happy housemates for over 20 years. We offer problem behavior consultations and modification programs by phone and on-line as well as in person. Group clinics cover a large array of behavioral topics & category classes provide extra help where it may be needed.
Here at Canine Castle Academy we offer group and private classes for obedience, beginner agility, tricks, canine good citizen, therapy dog, and clicker training. We are recreationally active in many avenues of the dog world including, but not limited to, show handling, flyball, freestyle, carting, and retreiver work to name a few.
And for the fun of it, we like to organize puppy parties, playgroups, and Fido fun nights, where you can participate in a variety of fun & games with your canine companion,(no practice necessary).
Canine Castle Academy was created to help pet parents and canine companions live happier more fulfilled lives through improved communication skills, behavior problem solving, education, training and fun, (don't forget the fun).
As a service to our Maine residents we offer free clinics for behavior problem solving. We regret that we do not have the capabilities to extend this offer beyond our state limits. Please Note: Clinics are not individual comprehensive consultations, but often a few suggestions and common solving techniques concerning your doggie dilema may help you take the first steps on the path to success.
It is recomended that you reserve your spot prior to attending a clinic as some topics of discussion can fill up quickly. With a wealth of information being covered we offer problem solving workbooks for a fee of $5:00 or strongly suggest taking good notes as referencing good notes can often be more profitable than relying on a memory bank filled with bits and pieces of important information.

In person, online & by phone
Free & Low Cost CLINICS
Our Clinics were created as a way to work with an entire group of people at the same time with similar interests or problems.
Generally, by keeping to one topic per clinic it allows us to help those attending fully understand the inner workings of a problem or how to avoid one.
Clinics provide some time to teach you how things appear from a dogs perspective, how problems arrise, why they may continue, and what can be done to avoid or illiminate problem behaviors.
For the most part clinics are a way to help you and your companion get over that bump in the road which may be causing a bump in your relationship.
Clinics are by no means a replacement for a good training program, but they are a great way to obtain insight and infor-mation when dealing with specific issues.
