As we mourn the sudden & tragic passing of Norman, please understand that the plan for his website is to transition it to a memorial site for him & his work with dogs over time.

We do have a refund process in place also, if you were unable to finish your dog’s training.

A Note From Norman

Welcome to Norman's K9 Academy. I have been training all breeds of dogs for over 40 years. I started gaining my experience from working in one of the first training facilities in Louisville in the early 70's.

From there I became a Police Officer in Clarksville, IN in March of 1983 and within a year I became a K9 Officer. When I retired from the Police force in 2008 I immedately became a Senior Trainer at a local pet store.

With a lifelong passion for training dogs it is with great pride that I now have my own academy & look forward to working with you & your pet.
