Olympus Dog Training Academy


was established in 1980. We have trained dogs in various areas of interest and our instructors have received national recognition. It is our primary goal to help the owner and their dogs achieve their maximum potential, either as well behaved pets, competition dogs or as working dogs. We have expanded our service area ranging from Pickering to Hamilton and as far north as Barrie.

Our Staff:

Olympus Dog Training Academy has a great team that allows us to provide the service, training and dogs that you need. Our instructors have experience in a variety of aspects from obedience training, K9 behaviour, protection training, pet therapy instruction, detection work, executive protection, Schutzhund and CKC titles.

Consulting/Behavior Modification:

One of our staff will evaluate your dog FREE OF CHARGE. This allows us to answer your questions in as much detail as you wish after having seen your dog, its temperment, character, bond within the family, and your ability to understand and implement the information.

Police Dog/Corrections:

We breed German Shepherd dogs at our Orangeville kennel and, over the years, Olympus has provided numerous dogs to Canadian police forces, correction facilities and security specialists. Olympus also provides bomb and drug detection services for corporate, special events and executives.


We offer Practical Basic Obedience, Intermediate and Advanced training programs in group classes as well as private training at one of our facilities. Our training method does not require a "pouch full of treats". There are other ways to motivate your dog.

The next Practical Basic Obedience class in the HAMILTON area will begin on Saturday, October 23 at 10:00 a.m. We are offering 6, one hour classes for $175. We can accomplish in 6 classes what other trainers try to accomplish in 8 or more classes. Your time is valuable and we appreciate that. If you attend all 6 classes and do your homework, you will see results. You will learn proper handling techniques such as sit, stay, down, heel, and come to gain control of your dog. The classes are suitable for both puppies and adults. Should you develop new issues with your dog in the future, whatever the reason, we are here to help. Class size is limited, so please register early.
