SEE WHAT OUR GRADUATES ARE SAYING


We’ve been around since 2007

“This course has been the most amazing experience of my life; I am so pleased that I put other things aside for it. It has been so worth it.”

- Heather Stevens

“I have been in a number of graduate classes and have earned two masters' degrees. Yet, this coursework was every bit as challenging and (frankly) a lot more fulfilling!”

- Susan Cullinan

“I have completed a few trainer courses and this is the first to exceed my expectations. The content is well written and is delivered at a level that educates and excites. Seeing my young Malinois improving every workshop and increasing our bond was terrific, as was understanding (finally) 'clean cues.' Thank you for the journey.”

- Patricia Mahon

“It was a wonderful experience. If I could, I would do it all over again!”

- Ameigh Olson

“This is a fantastic course! The material and exercises are very thorough. KPA practices what it preaches; the lessons are broken down into many small achievable steps and the successes are reinforced for the learner. It’s a lot of hard work, but they really do what they can to set the students up for success.”

- Jennifer Robak

“I opened the 'Congratulations' email and burst into tears! Wow, what an amazing 6 months! Your program has changed my life in so many ways already. The bond I have formed with my pup Lib is just beautiful. And, the bonds I formed with my classmates are so rare in this busy world we live in. I am grateful for the friendships we have formed, and the skills I have learned. I am honored to become part of the KPA team and community.”

- Leanne Ray

“It is probably THE course that all animal trainers should take. I like how the course aims to help students succeed and the programme content and instructional format are conducive to ensuring students get all the assistance and feedback they need throughout the entire course. I have gained so much more than just becoming a better dog trainer; I made some lifelong friends. I wouldn't have done it any other way. Thank you KPA!”

- Angela Wong

“This has been without doubt the most rewarding achievement of my life. Really life changing.”

- Carol Milner

“Over the years I had completed many training and behavior courses, but the KPA course was by far one of the most thorough and complete training courses ever. I am proud to be a KPA CTP.”

- Shannon Coyner

“I expected it to be a challenging course, but it really made me stretch. It made me feel like the investment I made (time & money) has been well spent. I came to learn and was taught!”

- Marlene Larkin

“I enjoyed doing the exercises and having a hands-on feel with every lesson. The layout flows so smoothly. Suddenly my dog and I were doing things that I never thought we could do. The videos were great and clearly outlined the goal of each exercise, and that the goal CAN be achieved. I enjoyed how much detail was put into every lesson with research analysis, studies that have been conducted, and anecdotal pieces. Most of all, I enjoyed how much fun I had with my dog; my dog has become much more playful, eats better, and has much more confidence, especially in new situations. It has been a wonderful experience for both of us.”

- Shelina Sharma

“I'm so proud of what we achieved and to be a part of KPA. It has been a wonderful learning experience.”

- Kim Lyddon

“It has been a fantastic 9 months. My dog, Rune, and I have loved every minute. I am so proud to be a part of KPA.”

- Alasdair Bunyan

"I'm so delighted to be a KPA graduate. The course far surpassed my expectations and has created a monumental shift in my life's path and purpose. Thank you all for the support and this tremendous opportunity for future growth."

- Caroline Albert 

“My mentor told me that Karen Pryor Academy is the gold standard in becoming a certified trainer. KPA not only prepares you for animal training, but also teaches you how to coach, which is a HUGE part of working with owners and pets daily. ”

- Rachel Lees, RVT, KPA CTP, VTS (Behavior)
