Education at Dharma Academy shows how highly you value your dog.

Stop training and start parenting your pup.
Dogs are eager and enthusiastic
Learn to teach
without crushing their spirit.






Dharma Academy  demolishes most of what you probably learned about dogs. 

Dogs will be dogs and dogs should be dogs. There is no universal dog, not one method or formula to use in every situation. 

Dogs have individual emotions and opinions. They have their own perceptions and ideas. What dogs don’t have is the lifestyle of wolves, they don’t live in packs and they don’t barbecue grasshoppers. 

What dogs do or don’t do and what’s good or bad for dogs can’t be generalized. It has to be about each individual, unique dog.

This is indeed disconcerting for those who lean on old excuses and scapegoating of common dog training.

But for those who long for that one true bond and family life with their dogs it’s also exciting and fascinating.

What we teach for decades is now backed up by science; dogs are much like young children and should be parented rather than trained, taught instead of pushed. Elite parenting takes you and your dog to a whole different level.


This path isn’t for everyone, but for the right people, it transforms lives.  

There is nothing wrong with your dog, just the methods and attitudes you have been using.


Hey you,  human, whose dog’s happiness shivers in their hands. Still you.

Feel embarrassed by that fragile furry soul’s behavior and want to change it to impress neighbors, friends, restaurant folks and stop that dog trainer from laughing at you?

Stick to all those common dog trainers who will set your dog “straight” and call it positive reinforcement to make you feel better.  Leave here knowing your dog deserves better.

If you look for a psychological new approach and don’t mind under the hood it’s the same old conditioning  and training, do it somewhere else and waste your money and your dogs mind while pretending to be better.

If you look for something real and different - your dogs best interest, body heart mind soul -  we’re your only choice, welcome to the true sharp cutting edge.
