About the Academy

The Fenzi Dog Sports Academy is an online school dedicated to providing high-quality instruction for competitive dog sports using only the most current and progressive training methods.

Dog sports allow us to form special relationships that many of us never dreamed possible. We strive to help you develop the flexible, warm, supportive partnership with your dog that we are so excited to have found with our own! 

FDSA Supports

  • Clarity: Provide clear and concrete information that will help you and your pup meet your goals, using proven instructors who excel in their field.

  • Respect: Instruct in a warm and supportive manner that respects the dog and the handler equally.

  • Education:  Reach as many individuals as possible by offering reasonably priced courses across a broad range of topics in a supportive, inclusive learning environment.


Our Philosophy

Our courses are taught in a manner that respects the physical and emotional well being of both the dog and handler. Our philosophy is to be kind, always.

We meet our students where they are…you don’t have sign a pledge and we don’t specify how students should or should not train.  We provide you with effective and dog friendly options; what you do with that information is up to you. 


Our Courses

We offer a comprehensive program of courses that lay out a plan for raising a cooperative sports dog and working partner in a wide range of competitive dog sports. Each class focuses on achieving excellent training for better results.
