"We Train Them All, Big and Small"

Have you been looking for a great place to take your dog for training? Did you just get a puppy and want to learn how to properly care for them, as well as train them? Have you been looking for a Assistance/Service Dog trainer ?  Do you want to properly train a Personal Protection Dog?  If you answered yes to any of these questions, look no further than the American Canine Institute in Fruitland - Idaho!

Bring your dog to us while you at work and let him/her play with other dogs in a controlled and safe environment. Remember that 90% of dog misbehavior problems can be traced back to lack of exercise and socialization.
When your out of town for a vacation or family emergency or just about anything else where its just not convenient to take your furbaby with you, bring them to us where they will be warm, safe and happy!  We won't just keep them in a kennel, we will let them out where they can play with other dogs and have the time of their life.   They will also get much needed interaction with humans by having some one on one play time. Large 5x10 foot kennels with climate control so they are never too cold or too hot.
When your busy schedule will not allow the time for you to bring your dog to class you can bring your dog to us for a short period and we will train him/her for you.  We have a 14 day package which most dogs will do fine with and a 28 day package that the most subborn few or those with existing behavior problems need.  The dogs are boarded at our training facility in a large 5x10 foot kennel with a clean climate controlled environment

Service Dogs for Disabled Kids Program

ACI-Idaho Service Dogs for Disabled Kids Program is a program where we provide and train Service Dogs for disabled children who desperately need a Service Dog and cannot afford one.  We provide these Service Dogs free of charge however, only through donations of the community.  Each dog is required to complete a minimum of 120 hours of training and for some dogs it is much longer.  The average cost of each dog is $10,000.00. If you are interested in supporting this program please contact John Butcher, Master Trainer at 541-889-4304 208-488-5021 or at [email protected]
