If you are seriously interested in furthering your dog sports education, either as a hobbyist or as a professional trainer, Fenzi Academy has a lot to offer you!

World Class Instructors

The quality of our instructors is unbeatable. All of our instructors have three things in common:

  1. They are thoroughly familiar with dog sports as active trainers or competitors,
  2. They are patient and kind with both humans and canines, and 
  3. They have been hand picked by Denise Fenzi for their in-depth knowledge and skill. 

In the case of courses with a heavy science or theoretical basis, our instructors tend to have a Ph.D, making them highly qualified and experienced at teaching these academic subjects.


Because Fenzi Academy is online, you can take courses without leaving the comfort of your home! This allows you to concentrate on a topic without disrupting your life or committing to a long term program. You'll never have to worry about weather cancellations, travel expenses, or missed classes. To see how the classes work, visit our sample classroom.

Courses that Meet YOUR Needs

Our courses are designed to give you a path to your goals, not ours. Instead of taking random courses that someone else thinks you need, you can select the classes that exactly meet your interests and goals (that said, if you want help picking something, we’re happy to! Just drop Denise a note on facebook messenger or contact her here.


Our courses are affordable - especially when you consider that you will be learning from a world class trainer! Plus, you are no longer limited to the trainer who lives closest to you.

We offer three levels of participation.

  • Gold: The Gold level is $260 and allows you regular access to your instructor. You'll be able to submit questions and videos to ensure you're going the right direction.
  • Silver: At the Silver level ($130), you may ask GENERAL questions about course materials and may submit two, one-minute videos for instructor feedback.
  • Bronze: For those of you who are self-motivated, the Bronze level is a steal at $65. You will have access to all of the same lectures, demo videos, and discussion forums as your other classmates; you just won't be able to post. This is significantly more information than you would be able to get through a DVD or book.

 If finances still pose a burden, we encourage you to apply for a scholarship; if you are serious about getting information, we are serious about providing you with the help you need. Our scholarships cover half the cost of a Bronze level class subscription.

Ideal for Dogs with Behavior Issues

Our classes are perfect for reactive, shy, or aggressive dogs who aren't ready for a class setting - without the expense of ongoing private lessons. You will also be able to carefully watch other students' lessons without having to worry about your dog. Further, you can take classes right here on the very topics your dog is struggling with!

From Foundations to Ring Ready

Fenzi Academy is the only training school for sport dogs that teaches motivation based (R+) training from start to finish. Our instructors have the experience and knowledge to take you through all aspects of training without compulsion - not just the beginning steps! We will cover the proofing and trial preparation steps as well. Instructors with this information are few and far between in many dogs sports, and they are right here to help you on your journey!
