Intermountain K9 Academy


Intermountain K9 Academy offers dog training in Salt Lake and surrounding areas from Max Chardack, a Master Dog Trainer. We offer private one-on-one sessions and specialty programs to work on behaviors from basic obedience to aggression and behavior modification. Our understanding of canine learning theory allows us to cue or halt a wide range of behaviors. We create a realistic and effective training progression for each dog and guide you through the process.

We love working with all dogs, and look forward to working with you and your pet.




We have a marker based training philosophy that uses positive and negative reinforcement and punishment when influencing our dogs’ decision making processes. We use three principles to establish and maintain behaviors: timing, motivation, and consistency. These principles are the basis for clear communication between you and your dog, whether a Police K9 or a pet.

Each dog is an individual. We recognize this and have a variety of training techniques and methods, each suitable for a different dog. We train the dog in front us with the methods that get the best response.
