Our 6-month Dog Trainer Professional program is for the highly motivated dog trainer who is looking to advance his/her skills and career prospects to their highest levels. The program combines online learning with hands-on instruction and is divided into four online Units and four two-day hands-on workshops; complete an online Unit and then attend a two-day workshop at the end of each Unit.

What About Covid 19?  We have it covered.  In the event that it is not safe for a workshop to be held in person, it can be delivered as scheduled in a virtual workshop environment. The adaptations we have made deliver the excellent education experience for which the Dog Trainer Professional program is known while keeping everyone safe in this unique time.
