Matt Lamarand

Focus Based Dog Trainer

Founder Matthew Lamarand is a former United States Air Force Explosive Detection Dog Handler Veteran and Secret Service K9 Handler for president Obama. While working with a local dog training company, he found that the dogs he worked with were obedient to the collars and treats, not the owners. As a result, he started Dogology University to help people raise their perfect canine partners, and move away from reliance on collars and treats as training tools.

Professional Focus-Based Dog Trainers

Over the past 10 years, we’ve helped dog owners achieve the
obedient and well mannered canine companion that they
deserve. Through this experience, we’ve had the opportunity to see what works and what doesn’t when it comes to dog training. And now, we’re sharing our tried and true solutions with you!

Group Classes

Together, we can give your pup an environment that makes them feel safe and rewarded. With Group Classes, both you and your dog can learn by doing it  yourself with the guidance of our expert professors, and without the use of tools, treats, or tricks!

Varsity Sports

Our Varsity Sports are for dogs with a basic obedience foundation, and for owners who want to further improve on their partnership with their dog! These are weekly sessions each month that allow you to try out new things with your dog, whether it’s nosework, agility, tricks – the sky’s the limit!

Doggy Daycare

Hear From Client Success Stories

Read about our clients’ successes and satisfaction below!

I wish I could give them more than 5 stars. I have a 5 month old puppy that I had some behavior concerns. I registered her in the 4 week puppy group class. Within 2 weeks of class I could see such a difference in her. Nobody else will train our dogs and I highly encourage people to take their dogs to Matt and Ashaleena for training or specific problems. They are professional and personable. Thank you Matt and Ashaleena for all you’ve done for Cobi and myself.

Jill Chagnon

We took our dog Arlo (8 month old Jack Russell/mix) to Dogology University for the 4 week training section, and we could not be happier! I would recommend Matt & Ashleena to anyone looking for help training there dog. My dog Arlo is a very high energy & excitable dog, and I was struggling training him to behave the way I needed him to behave.
