Dog Training Academy in Clifton Park NY for All Breeds

At the Upstate Canine Academy we offer non-traditional dog obedience training in Clifton Park, NY. Our expertise in canine behavior and overall understanding of canines allow us to educate you, as the dog owner, and create a better relationship between human and dog. Learning how to communicate with your dog properly is a key component of successful dog training and we are here to help you through this process.

Our motto is NO BAD DOGS. A primary portion of our dog obedience training is educating you about your dog’s behaviors and teaching you how to effectively change these behaviors. Each dog learns differently and has individual needs. Our creative dog training methods allow us to progress with every dog.

Private & Group Dog Training Classes

With private and group sessions, our dog training packages in Clifton Park, NY customize training to you and your dog. Private dog training focuses on specific behaviors and issues, while group sessions put you and your dog in a high distraction environment to ensure the obedience training is effective regardless of where you bring your dog.

Our dog training classes work on everything from:

Group dog training session
Out of state dog training with Loki and his owner


Our Online Dog Training & Virtual Consulting Sessions allow you to work with America’s Canine Educator Tom Davis in the comfort of your own home via live video chat.

These private, one-on-one sessions are tailored to your specific goals and concerns, and they can sometimes reveal underlying issues faster than in-person training.

Board & Train

Available as a 2, 3, or 4 week session, Board & Train is essentially a training camp for your dog. He or she will stay with us at our facility in Clifton Park and benefit from specialized training with professionals in a controlled setting, as well as off-site training in realistic environments.

We customize each Board & Train program depending on your goals and your dog’s needs, which can include basic beginner obedience, off-leash training, behavior modification and more. The goal is to develop a dog who is obedient, confident and can follow commands with anyone, anywhere.

This is one of our most popular dog obedience training packages for those who wish to work hands-on with Tom, but are located hours or states away. Our Out-of-State Training Packages are customized to you and your dog, and include 5 private sessions with Tom. The 5 sessions are completed over the course of three days, training once in the morning and once in the afternoon.

We have accommodating, dog-friendly hotels less than 5 miles from our facility. This is a great option for dogs that are not suited for our board & train program. *Please note there is 4-6 week wait for scheduling*
