Place is run down. My dog got diarrhea because of some bug it picked up there.
FYI you can’t train a dog in 10 days.
My puppy came back scared, doing some of the things it was thought, but terrified it would be punished if it didn’t. Almost $2000 later I was upset I allowed this to happen to my dog.
Don’t waist your money. There are better places.

The owner and trainer appeared to be nice people... but the truth is, they did nothing with my dog. Our pup went in already well trained but we wanted two issues corrected. They instead made a video of what our dog already knew and did not address at all our concerns. $1600.00 in cash for nothing. A partial refund would be the least they could do.

Tom Hunt senior and junior are offering a 10-day training course and afterwards you can board your dog with them for only $30 /day with re-training automatically included. We had our 3 months old German Shepherd puppy there for training and it was a great experience! Hands-on and very personal care with lot of great advise and tips!

Fantastic family run training facility! Went in with our 4 year old Jack Russel mix for an unexpected quarantine. BOTH father and son continue to show care, concern and have given us tremendous insight as to how to correct our dog's issues. I highly recommend them. They take the time to get to know your dog and what does and doesn't work for them. Personal attention and care is what they are all about.

Just wanted to write a quick "thank you" for boarding Monty for me. Easily the happiest and calmest I have ever had him after boarding. You provided excellent care and I got back a clean, calm, happy dog. He's not even giving me the cold shoulder for leaving him for a week! (I usually get ignored for a day or two if I leave him somewhere for more than 2 days)

For that, you get 5 stars from me and 5 stars from Monty! Thanks!

Kara Ann Merancy wrote this review in a comment about Teddy, who is a wonderful 6 year old dog we have trained and are helping to foster.

Rose Hope Animal Refuge is so proud of our Teddy. The Eagle K-9 Academy does a great job and is so dedicated to the dogs. The Eagle K-9 Academy makes the dogs feel right at home. Tom could find Teddy resting soundly underneath his desk. Tom from the Eagle K-9 Academy in Bethany, CT, is so very caring to the dogs; and absolutely a real pleasure to deal with. The Eagle K-9 Academy teaches the dogs invaluable lessons for obedience and socialization skills that they will carry their whole lives.

Teddy has a great personality and is a very fast learner. Teddy is going to make someone a wonderful pet. Isn't Teddy a very handsome dog? Are you worried about shedding? Please do not be with Teddy; as he is a pure bread Wheaton Terrier, from Ireland; whose breed is known for their soft coat and little shedding. How do you keep his coat so silly soft? Teddy would appreciate you combing and brushing his silky soft coat. Teddy is so eager to learn and would love to be devoted to you in his forever home.

Are you interested in adopting Teddy? Please call Hanna at 203-597-1236.

There are many obedience trainers around but if you want to be at ease and assured of the people taking care of your four legged friend, I would only recommend Eagle K9. After completing the 10 Day obedience training My Siberian Husky has never been more attentive and has never been as eager to please just for affection, so no need to give treats every time which is completely mind blowing. The process is simple and you are updated every step of the way of how your dog is doing. This family knows how to train dogs, so bring them yours!

Eagle K-9 Academy LLC Q&A

What do you love most about your job?

We love when we get dogs who are unruly and misbehaving at home and transforming them into well-behaved companions

What inspired you to start your own business?

Thomas Hunt Sr. is a Certified Master Trainer and graduated from the U.S. K9 Academy some 30 years ago. He has studied the wolves at Wolf Haven International, in Tenino Washington, and studied animal behavior at Cornell University. He decided to make dog training his life's work after his own dog, "Eagle," saved the life of his son from the path of an oncoming truck. Eagle ultimately sacrificed his own life in the process, hence our name, "Eagle K9 Academy". Thomas Hunt Sr. retired in December 2017 and now acts a mentor at our facility.
Thomas Hunt Jr. is a Certified Master Trainer and began training dogs at a young age. He is a graduate of the U.S. K9 Academy.
Christopher Hunt is joining the staff as a certified groomer and master trainer. Christopher is passionate about dogs and has enjoyed being around them all his life. He is excited about joining the family business and providing positive reinforcement, training services, dog grooming and more. Our dog grooming is coming in the near future.

Why should our clients choose you?

Eagle K-9 Academy is a family-owned-and-operated business founded by Tom Hunt Sr. in 1985. Three generations of professional trainers now handle daily projects. Our family knows and loves dogs. Come and see for yourself why Eagle K-9 Academy is a recognized symbol of excellence among dog enthusiasts.
