Acme Canine…we teach dog owners new tricks 

To better understand Acme Canine, you need to know how we started. In 2004 Acme Canine was created to bring professional, knowledgeable and caring dog training to the places dogs misbehave the most…their home.

When owner, Laura Pakis, decided on the Acme name, she had not thought of the benefits of having a company name that started with the first letter of the alphabet. Rather it was based on two other reasons. One was the good memories of the nostalgic Acme Company and how it could fix anything. Most importantly, it was the more intellectual reason of Acme’s definition meaning “the highest level or degree attainable; the highest stage of development”. For Acme Canine that means being dogcentric!

Acme Canine has been a member of the canine community for over 12 years.  From it’s early beginnings of certified trainer, Laura Pakis, training in her apartment in Delaware, Ohio to a staff of 4 trainers and 10 kennel assistants caring and working with all breeds and all ages of dogs at her facility in Lewis Center, Ohio and now sharing her knowledge through Spike’s Blog, Acme Canine has taken on many roles to better serve the canine community.

Known throughout the United States for maintaining the highest standards of professionalism and business practice as well as keeping abreast of the latest methods, practices and techniques of dog care, Acme Canine is synonymous with quality care and expertise in dog training. Since its formation, Acme Canine is committed to making dogs polite members of society and a joy to own.  Keeping with its mission, Acme Canine continues to utilize a variety of innovative and individualized techniques to teach dog and owner a positive method of living and learning together.
