Campus Details & Hours

Imagine your pup coming to school to  train full day in a luxury boutique-style second home. That's what we've created here at The Puppy Training Academy! We provide the highest quality, best training environment and service possible -- a place that you and your fur baby will both love and feel comfortable in. Just like home. And a place that doesn't SMELL like a bunch of pups hang out there all day! You will be amazed with our facility standards.


We love Green Standards. All of our cleaning solutions are made with safe no harm ingredients free from toxins and made with pup approved essential oils. Most of our treats are made in our Bark Bites Kitchen. If we didn't make it we can assure you that its one ingredient and small batch supporting a small business. We also have our Bark Park & Bar, where your pup can chill on the grass and choose their favorite Bark Cup ingredients and toppings. 

We are the one of the first drop-off all day puppy training academies of its kind in the United States and we are so thrilled to have our flagship store in the beautiful Fredericksburg, Virginia.
