Fenzi Dog Sports Academy

Fenzi Dog Sports Academy was developed to provide extremely high quality information, worldwide, regarding the most current and progressive methods of dog training for competition dogs; otherwise known as “sport” dogs.  Most of the classes are targeted specifically at dog sports competitors, so if this is you, or if you think you might want to participate, then read on.

Our primary goal is education above certification.  We believe that by focusing on education and very concrete training  information, dog sports can progress to the most science based and humane methods possible.  As a science based, motivational trainer, Denise feels strongly about providing this information to others to assist them in developing flexible, warm, supportive partnerships with their canine dog sport companions.  Dogs are not playthings; they are thinking, breathing, feeling creatures – pets first and foremost.  Dog sports allow us to take our pets and develop relationships that many of us never dreamed possible, but only if training is done with ultimate respect for both members of the team; dog and handler.

For both the handler and the dog, training should be a journey, not a destination.  Open your mind, develop your skills and see where the journey takes you.
