Enrich the life of
your pet through active and structured play, exercise, and socialization.
LECA is a daily enrichment program based on Social-Cognitive Learning Theory (SCT) and positive reinforcement. It has been validated by behaviorists, trainers, and veterinarians to help family pets be healthy and happy family members and thrive.
We don't train dogs to pass a test or a trial. They never fail and we do not punish. We seek to establish a strong and positive relationship between human and dog. Any aggressive responses or punishments significantly impede our objectives and mission.
Why choose our Enrichment Program
Dogs socialize and play with other dogs under constant, expert supervision to get exercise, build up confidence and have fun.
Dogs work individually or in small groups with our professional trainers on Impulse Control, Confidence, Basic Obedience, and Leash Manners. Each dog is an individual and we customize the curriculum for every family.
Once a dog can master the basics, we work on advanced skills like Agility, Nose Work, and Enrichment.
The LECA Curriculum
Our curriculum is designed to support dogs at every stage of their life, maturity, and emotional/mental development.
Some dogs struggle with impulse control, reactivity, lack of confidence, and high levels of anxiety or stress. We work with dogs to better deal with their environment.
Our basic obedience training introduces and reinforces concepts, like sit, stay, come, down, and drop. We develop a foundation for communication and trust and establish basic rules of appropriate behavior. We generalize these behaviors to empower the dog to deal with greater distances, durations, and a variety of environments.
We introduce complex environments and develop additional skills like bring it, around, go there, and focused heel.

We believe that training, enrichment, and engagement are a lifestyle, not one-time events. We are committed to making our clients' life with their dogs at home the best it can possibly be. Our members can enjoy access to the all of the following...
1. Group Classes
Members can join any of our group classes. The classes are a great way to generalize behaviors, address behavioral or management problems, and improve the relationship with your dog.
2. Private Training
We host monthly private training sessions for our members. These training sessions are a great opportunity for everyone in the family to learn about dog training and see what their dog is up to in our Academy.
Every dog is an individual. We create custom lesson plans for each dog based on specific enrichment goals and progress with the curriculum.
4. Specialty Clinics
We regularly host specialty clinics, such as Junior Trainers - a clinic for kids to learn basic dog training/handling techniques, Positive Husbandry - a clinic to learn how to groom and clean your dog at home, First-Aid - if you don't know what to do in case of an emergency to potentially save the life of your best friend, and others.
5. Performance Reporting
Having a plan isn't enough. We use rigorous, standardized quantitative metrics to track the dog's progress. Assessments are done by trainers, assistants, and at home.
