Acme Canine…we teach dog owners new tricks 
and now we’re training dog trainers and owners of dog daycare and boarding facilities

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 for Acme’s definition, meaning “the highest level or degree attainable; the highest stage of development.” For Acme Canine, that means being dog-centric!

Acme Canine has been a member of the canine community for over 25 years.  From its early beginnings of a 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 serve the canine community better.

Known throughout the United States and abroad 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, dog daycare, and dog boarding. 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 dogs and owners a positive method of living and learning together. We are now coaching dog trainers and dog daycare and boarding facilities on how to achieve these high standards.

Our goal is for you to have the best in everything you do, and we do this with integrity, experience, and compassion. We are constantly coming up with new ways to create a fun and entertaining environment for dogs. We hope that you will take the opportunity to try out our services and sign up for our blog posts. You won’t regret it!
