How It All Started...

It all began with Ethan and Kona. Their close bond sparked interest from neighbors, who inquired, “Can you train my dog?” This simple question laid the foundation for NOVA Canine Academy, a professional dog training business based in Virginia, eventually extending its reach from Chicago to New York.

From the outset, Ethan’s mission has been to impart the same happiness to other dogs that he has cherished with Kona. While his personalized training approach limits him to 30 in-person sessions annually, Ethan is dedicated to transforming the lives of dog owners worldwide.

In late 2023, Ethan embarked on an online venture, producing educational and engaging dog training videos across InstagramTikTok, and Youtube. Embracing his passion, Ethan has connected with over 15 million people, sharing invaluable training insights to inspire others on their journey toward the fulfilling relationships that ignited his own passion for dog training.

Online Dog Training

My journey in dog training began with in-person Board & Trains that, thanks to the referrals from satisfied clients, quickly became the cornerstone of my business. After training hundreds of dogs, I discovered and invaluable concept: educating owners was just as crucial as training their pets. This realization lead me to record training sessions, demonstrating reinforcement techniques and explaining their significance. Realizing that giving owners the right information would set them up for a lifetime of success with their dog was a pivotal moment in my career.

As the proverb wisely states, “Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.”

The introduction of our online training options is not just an expansion of services—it’s a response to the incredible support and feedback from the community that has shaped my career. I’m immensely grateful for the trust and opportunities my clients have provided over the years. This platform is a way of giving back, allowing me to connect with you—the dog owner seeking resources to foster a healthier, happier relationship with your pet.

I am excited about this new chapter and eager to help more owners and their dogs succeed. Please don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions, or to share your training goals with us. We are here to support your journey in canine training and look forward to being a part of your success.
