Dog Training at the K9 Collective Academy

The K9 Collective Academy trains dogs and people for many different reasons. They train difficult dogs to obey reliably off-leash, find solutions for the most extreme behavioral problems, and train dogs for all types of law enforcement and advanced security needs. Rehabilitation for over-aggressive and fearful dogs is their specialty. If your dog is a drop out from another training program or too extreme for the recommended behaviorist, contact K9 Collective Academy. Seeing is believing so we invite you to visit them any time to watch their furry students happily obeying to softly whispered commands around heavy distractions. They are there to prove that with proper knowledge, respect, and patience… no dog is un-trainable.

Creation of After Hours Pet Emergency Treatment Services

Pet Emergency Treatment Service Corporation (PETS)

The concept of this emergency clinic originated with Ocala veterinarians who created the Pet Emergency Treatment Service Corporation (PETS) in 2012. In a unique collaboration, the University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine and PETS joined forces to serve pet owners in the Marion County region. The purpose of the clinic is to bridge the gap during time periods when veterinarians’ offices are typically closed. Our goal is to provide a caring, compassionate environment for critically ill animals and their families.
