Here at Pawville Training Academy, we feel that there is no one way to train a dog. Our trainers believe that dogs, much like people, learn tasks and desired behaviors in varying ways.  As such, we adjust our approach and methodologies based upon the needs of your pet.
Our trainers are current and former US military dog trainers.  We’ve found their depth of knowledge and expertise works particularly well within our training philosophy given that our  approach necessitates a trainer with deep expertise within a variety of training techniques.
Most importantly, our ultimate goal is to turn you into the trainer.  You as the pet owner you must be equipped with the proper mindset, knowledge, and tools in order to consistently reinforce proper behavior long after your pet has left the presence of our trainers.

Our trainers have acquired their styles from experiences as US military working dog trainers and handlers. As such, they have the tools and abilities to work with a variety of issues including:

  • Aggressive (directed toward people and/or animals)
  • Skittish/fearful
  • Disobedient
  • Destructive

We offer a complimentary 15 minute consultation that will help us identify your training goals and will help set your expectations for future training sessions.  If you elect not to utilize the complimentary 15 minute consultation prior to the first session, that complimentary consultation will be added to the first session.
Many training sessions will be conducted at our Jacksonville Pawville facility.  However, your trainer may elect to conduct training sessions at your home or other public places when these locations help meet the desired training goals.

Please don’t feed your dog an hour before or after each session.

Individual Instruction

We understand that every dog is different and, as such, each dog will be approached with an open mind.  After evaluating  you and your dog on an individual basis, we will set goals and implement techniques that best suit your needs. If your dog has any previous training, we will expand upon it and enhance your dog’s obedience to accomplish the goals we have collectively agreed upon.
