Read through our client’s experiences working with us at OverWatch K9 Academy.

From the moment we became clients Maegan has been nothing but amazing! Even before Novas first official week she reached out to me and began helping me with training. I am clueless on how to train a dog even though I have had them my whole life. Maegan has been a saving grace in guiding me on how to continue the training and structure she has taught Nova. She has put so much time, love and attention into Nova and worked hard to make Nova an even better version of her already awesome self. I am so thankful for Maegan and ALL she has done and continues to! Girl you are amazing Nova and I love ya for it and could not do it without you. Your guidance and reassuring words are just what I needed.

I sent my two aussiedoodle puppies to Overwatch K9 when they were 12 weeks old for puppy training and then when they were 6 months old for further training. The puppies that came back were still the same goofy weirdos and hadn’t lost their personalities but they were well behaved and knew the basic commands. Our trainer is always willing to work with me to advance their training. Recently, she met with me and my dog when he displayed a new behavior that needed to be addressed. I’ve recently sent my two new bernedoodle puppies to her company for their puppy manners, and I look forward to sending them back to her for obedience training at 6 months. There are not enough words to express how amazing these people are and how glad I am that I found them.

Jessica has been the most amazing trainer and more for us with our puppy Nala (Goldendoodle). Nala trained with Jessica from a puppy (Puppy Pre-K9) and has been a welcomed addition to our family. Most importantly though, Jessica set really good expectations for us as pawrents and helped us learn what we should be doing. Less about training the puppy but training the humans. With her guidance and consultations we have had an amazing experience and would highly recommend OverWatch K9 Academy to anyone.

Tega McKinney, Nala the Goldendoodle

Wow. GREAT EXPERIENCE! From my very first phone call, at 7 AM Joey spoke to me immediately and was VERY helpful and easy to talk to and also super fun! He knew all the answers to my concerns and paired us with the best trainer for our puppy! Our trainer Maegan is INCREDIBLE & naturally great with dogs & LOVES animals with her entire heart. She had great communication with my husband and I as our puppy stayed with her during training. I will be using overwatch k9 academy for all of my future puppies! Our Dalmatian is a better dog all around to the thanks of K9 academy

Puppy Obedience Training

At OverWatch K9 Academy we teach puppies using marker training and food luring, with a cue and a mark. Marker training creates engagement and builds a relationship, where your puppy will begin to seek out your attention. We teach a foundation of obedience through fun, similar to a child in kindergarten.

Puppies are little sponges! They are able to begin learning and shaping their behavior as early as 8 weeks of age. Our approach to training puppies can be summed up in the motto “work is play”!

puppy lessons VS puppy board and train

Puppy Lessons

Our puppy lessons clients are usually first time puppy owners who want a professional dog trainer to guide them along the journey of puppyhood. Our training begins at your home, in a safe environment free from external risks, getting an early start in shaping behaviors. After proper vaccines we venture out on field trips, exposing your puppy to varied environments, building their confidence, and instilling focus in the middle of distractions.

As your puppy gets bigger their energy level and curiosity increase rapidly – new behaviors develop almost weekly. Our lessons are structured to be every other week, allowing us to be with you and your puppy for 2 to 3 months, we are along for the journey every step of the way.

Puppy lessons will be completed when your puppy is around 5 months of age, just in time to begin more advanced obedience training. Whether you’d like to continue with Advanced Lessons or jump into our Advanced Obedience Board And Train, we have obedience training solutions to choose between.

We offer our lessons services in a more narrow area, including Atlanta, Sandy Springs, Brookhaven, Dunwoody, Vinings, Roswell, Smyrna, Marietta, and Kennesaw.

Puppy Board and Train

Our puppy board and train program is designed for our clients with a busy schedule, who want a jump start for their puppy. Your puppy will live with one of our professional dog trainers in their private home for 10 days, and return home with a basic obedience foundation.

We offer a convenient door-to-door service , coming to your home for your puppy’s pick up and drop off. At your puppy’s return your trainer will spend 1 to 2 hours showing off your puppy’s obedience, running through the details of your puppy’s potty and crate training schedule that sets your puppy up for success, and letting you practice your puppy’s obedience.

Following puppy training, we provide advanced training options to elevate your communication with your puppy to a higher level. Most of our puppy board and train clients continue their puppy’s training with our Advanced Obedience Board And Train Program. Our clients that reserve their puppy’s Advanced Obedience Board And Train in advanced receive free support from their trainer in between board and trains, including coming out to your home for assistance.

We offer our board and train services to all of the Atlanta metro area, including Canton, Lawrenceville, McDonough, and Newnan.

Advanced Obedience Board And Train

Clients that are familiar with teaching their puppy the basics and have the time to do so tend to reserve our Advanced Obedience Board And Train Program in advance. If this route sounds right for you, your trainer will come to your home shortly after your reservation is made, for a free set up for success session.

The minimum age to begin our Advanced Obedience Board And Train is five months of age. Please call us for reservations in advance of your dog being five months old.

Jessica has been amazing! Louie learned so much from her in just the 10 short days he was under her care and instruction. She reaches out to us to check on his progress and we are able to text or call her with any questions or concerns we have regarding Louie! Our experience with Jessica has been great and we are so excited Louie will be with her for his Advanced Obedience session!

Jessica was outstanding! She has given my puppy an amazing routine and taught him invaluable techniques. I’m so thankful we met her and I would recommend this company and Jessica to anyone who is looking for puppy training and relationship building!
