Making Training Accessible and Affordable for our Northwest Arkansas Community of Dog Lovers

BPOZ Academy Logo Announcement.png

Our new Bigs Paws Academy is focused on helping to train your dog while also supporting dogs that have been abandoned, abused, and neglected. We wanted to find a way to make dog training more obtainable, while also finding a creative new revenue source to support our dog rescue efforts... and so Big Paws Academy was born!

We are thrilled to be partnering with top class dog trainers at Off Leash K9 of Northwest Arkansas to now offer community dog training classes that are affordable and accessible. Our new location in Fayetteville is easily accessible to service the entire Springdale, Lowell, Rogers, Bentonville and surrounding communities. If you've ever thought about dog training for your beloved furry friends, check out the courses below! Our topics will change monthly in an effort to help address the variety of topics that are relevant to dog owners. All proceeds directly support our rescue operations, so when you train a dog, you save a dog! It's a win win!
