About US

Who We are

Founder Christos Philippou started Delaware K9 Academy in the beginning of 2019 in order to provide quality, safe, and affordable training and boarding services to the greater Northern Delaware area. After realizing that owners are still struggling to find a trainer that achieves exceptional results at an affordable price, he set out to build a company that can help. While located in Wilmington Delaware, we service all surrounding areas to make sure people can take advantage of what we have to offer.

Christos graduated from the University of Delaware in 2014 and commissioned as an Officer in the U.S. Army National Guard. He has also worked several desk jobs since graduation, but realized there was a sense of accomplishment missing from this type of work. He began working with dogs and their owners in 2018 and realized that this was his calling.

Why work with US?

Training shouldn’t be a chore or a hassle, it should be fun and exciting! We guarantee tails will be wagging, tongues will be out, and butts will be scratched. Our focus is on your dog. When your pup is with us, you get daily updates including photos and videos so you can feel like you’re right there with us. You will never be left in the dark wondering how your fur baby is doing when they are with us!

Whatever goals you have for your dog, we can help you get there. Whether you want to learn the ins and outs of dog training through private, one on one lessons, or would prefer to send your pup away to boot camp for our 2-week program, you’re guaranteed to see results. If you’re unsure which option would fit you best, give us a call and we can discuss what you’re looking to get out of training!
