The Dog Academy of Houston Texas, a Katy-based obedience training firm and pet boarding academy, is ready to help dog parents after opening Nov. 1 at 21725 Clay Road in Katy.

An academy representative was not available to comment by press time, but the academy’s website promotes a spacious, integrated learning environment for both pets and their owners.

“With individual offices for you and your pet, our staff is able to focus on your needs and desires and thoroughly review them with you,” reads a summary on the academy’s website. “At The Dog Academy, training is an essential part of owning a dog! We work with all types of breeds and sizes using L.I.M.A. (Least Intrusive, Minimally Aversive Training Philosophy). Reward-based training. Helping owners gain a healthy relationship with their dogs with relationship building, confidence building, as well as good manners and impulse control!”

The academy offers a climate-controlled environment, a pool and more than an acre of green space within which owners can utilize elective courses to build relationships and work on manners using reward-based training. 281-676-4411.
