Pack day at Sierra Canine Academy


and Camp Felicia!


Sierra Canine Academy

Is a professional dog training service located in Gardnerville, Nevada - serving Reno, the Carson Valley and the surrounding area. 

We teach all aspects of owner/dog relationship and behavior, hiking trail etiquette, and specialize in dog behavior modification.

Dog owners need to learn "pack behavior" and "dog body language" to be effective handlers of their dogs. This cannot be learned from a book. We educate our clients by working with them, their dogs, and my dogs. This is why our training techniques are so effective.

"We love our pack walk day. We learn off-leash obedience and have our skills tuned up. We listen better at home while having a great time!"
