The new space makes it possible for Tecla’s K-9 Academy to host seminars with top national dog trainers, with two major events coming up in August and October. On August 9 and 10, Tecla’s K-9 Academy will host Tyler Muto and his Dogmanship seminar. Tyler sits on the Board of Directors for the International Association of Canine Professionals, and he is sought after by dog owners throughout the U.S. and Canada for his dog training expertise.
From October 11-13, Tecla’s K-9 Academy will once again welcome Tyler along with Chad Mackin, who together will present their first-ever Mackin and Muto Dog Behavior Seminar. TK9 is proud to have been selected to host the first seminar by these two powerhouse trainers.
Both training seminars are likely to sell out, so those that wish to attend should email firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve a spot.
On Saturday, October 25 from 10AM to 6PM, Tecla’s K-9 Academy will hold their annual event, which has been relocated to the Howard County Fairgrounds due to the need for more space. This year’s event will be bigger than ever, with over 1,500 dog aficionados expected to attend. This is a community oriented event aimed at encouraging people to enjoy a special day socializing with other pet owners and also to make pet owners aware of the array of activities that they can participate in with their dog.
The Sport Dog Expo is a festival for dogs and their families. It will be a fun filled day of dog games and demonstrations covering Agility, Nose work, Rally, AKC Obedience, Schutzhund, Police K9, Mondio Ring, and Tracking. Attendees will be given the opportunity to learn valuable new skills from renowned national trainers, take part in various canine sporting events, and help support the numerous local vendors and rescue organizations that will be in attendance. Canines in attendance will have the opportunity to take part in a costume contest and shine in front of the lens of photographer Susan Izard in our “Most Photogenic Pet” contest.
About Tecla's K-9 Academy: Tecla’s K-9 Academy has established itself as an elite dog-training organization, and the new Elkridge facility will enable Tecla and her team to reach as many dogs as possible and continue to help those that are most in need. From rescue dogs to those with behavioral issues that other trainers have given up on, Tecla considers it her mission to help each and every dog that she can. Since becoming a trainer over 13 years ago, she has helped literally thousands of dogs, many of which would not have been given a chance in life otherwise.
Tecla’s K-9 Academy offers comprehensive dog training services for dogs of all ages and breeds. Training sessions are held at our state of the art facilities in Ellicott City and Elkridge, unless in-home training is preferred. Tecla’s K-9 Academy’s respected team of trainers is led by founder Tecla Walton, CPDT-KA, Pack to Basics Certified. Tecla is nationally renowned for her dog training skills in puppy imprinting, behavioral modification, and dog sport. Tecla’s K-9 Academy also offers puppy/dog daycare and boarding that is designed to put your dog in a positive and socialized setting, with continuous close supervision by the Tecla’s K-9 Academy staff, which collectively has over 50 years experience.
