About us

Merrill's K9 Academy offers professional dog training services to the central Maine area! Our trainers have years of experience working with varying breeds at varying levels in order to create a healthy lifestyle with you and your dog. We pride ourselves on creating a training plan for you and your pet that fits in your lifestyle.

Merrill's K9 Academy trainers are reward-based, balanced dog trainers that use a combination of different styles of training that best fit the way you want to train your dog. We believe in healthy relationships, clear communication between you and your dog, and establishing appropriate boundaries in your household. 



With our 1 on 1 private training lessons, our professional balanced trainers can address a variety of issues from biting, jumping, counter surfing, and barging through the door, as well as common basic obedience commands.


Day School

At day school, your dogs will get structured socialization with other dogs, while focusing specifically on training. Your dogs will learn that training comes first, even when in the presence of other dogs. While you spend all day at work, your dog will spend all day training and socializing with friends!


We offer a variety of group classes including:

Basic Obedience

AKC Canine Good Citizen

Off-leash / Advanced Obedience
