A new beginning.

Further your passion for dogs and training by completing an initial dog training school course at one of our trusted affiliate schools. We’re proud to partner with two of the nation’s best dog training schools: Tarheel Canine Training Inc. and Kennelwood Academy for Professional Dog Trainers.

From classroom discussions and demonstrations to hands-on training, you’ll explore how dogs think and learn, understand the relationship between dog and handler, study the science behind training methods, and develop foundational knowledge on specialized training applications.
