Welcome to Acme Canine Center (Acme), central Washington’s number one facility for the education of dogs and their owners. We’re located in Yakima, Washington, where we’ve been in business since 2010. We’re recommended by vets, shelters, and animal control officers. Our Accelerated Learning Program is unique, and the results are phenomenal. Our goal: to help you have a more meaningful relationship with your dog — one that’s based on natural communication, understanding, and mutual respect.
We offer a variety of training options for dogs and people of all ages. Leadership Class, our trademark at Acme, is the group class that teaches obedience, communication, relationship development and problem solving for companion dogs. Rally Obedience Class teaches the newest form of AKC obedience competition. Our Agility Program can introduce you to this popular canine sport and take you at! the way to national competition. Private Lessons, done at your place or ours, are for people with special needs and tight schedules. Doggy Day Camp provides exercise, play and socialization for your dog four days a week. We have two certified evaluators on staff to conduct AKC Canine Good Citizen Testing for your dog. Our Pro Shop carries high-quality dog toys and training equipment at discounts up to 50%. And we are distributors for Flint River Ranch Pet Food, which you can buy fresh off our shelves or have delivered to your home at no additional cost.
Most classes are conducted indoors in our large classroom. Our agility classes are held outdoors on grass in our fenced agility field at Acme, with advanced agility classes held at a covered arena in Naches. Our Doggy Day Camp utilizes the large classroom and adjacent fenced play yard. The Pro Shop is right inside the front door. The hours are:
- 7:30am to 8pm Monday thru Thursday
- 10am to 5pm Friday
- 9am to 12pm Saturday
Dogs learn fast at Acme because our approach is so unique. We teach you, the owner, how to communicate clearly with your dog in his or her language instead of yours. Think of it… learning is difficult if your teacher speaks a language you don’t understand. You spend a good deal of your time guessing what he or she wants… your mind wanders… you become frustrated and you end up spending more time thinking about lunch than the lesson at hand!
At Acme, You are your dog’s teacher. We teach you how to think, communicate, and even act a little more like a dog. Once you start speaking your dog’s language, you’ll see miraculous results as communication lines open up and you really start to understand each other. Learning about each other becomes fun for both of you, and you gain a greater appreciation and respect for each other. The result: you and your dog become an inseparable team, bonded more strongly than you ever imagined possible.
