Positive, force-free and games-based dog training online

4-Paws Canine Academy started in Aberdeen in 2017, but has now moved to Denmark. We still offer online private sessions – and if there is interest from at least two parties, we still also offer online classes via Zoom.

At 4-Paws Canine Academy we use only force-free and positive dog training methods to ensure that we create a strong bond between you and your dog. All training is planned with the dog’s health in mind and we are therefore aware of and customise all of our training to suit each individual dog.

Not everything that is suitable for bigger dogs are suitable for smaller dogs and vice versa. Age can also be a limitation to what kind of training is sensible for the dog and all of this is taken into account to maximise the training outcome while still ensuring the dog has a great time without straining or injuring itself. You can read more about force-free positive dogtraining here.

  • positive review  Annalouise is brilliant at what she does. She prepared well for the session taking on board all of the areas I wanted to work on with my dog, Mac. She provided a comprehensive document after covering everything we discussed so I could refer to it and share with family. She has also been on hand for any clarification or additional queries I have had. Thanks again!!!
