We are a training academy that follows the APDT principles of using science-based dog friendly methodologies to teach preparatory education with a goal towards accreditation to a national standard—the CCPDT. The only nationally recognized organization that standardizes pet training professionals, is the Certification Council for Professional Dog Trainers (CCPDT). Our dog trainer school offers internships through an online match service called Fetch Find Inc, ongoing educational seminars, as well an affiliation with rescue organizations in Phoenix and Scottsdale.
How Our School for Dog Trainers is Different:
Students learn through a variety of ways: lecture, video, observation, field studies, and hands-on training of rescue dogs. Independent projects and on-line research, in conjunction with small group classes, makes it Arizona’s only hands-on dog trainer school for those wanting to work with dogs as a career.
Our professional school for dog trainers teaches people about dog behavior and training in the academy setting, as well as the real world. If you want to learn from qualified, positive instructors with years of hands-on experience in their field; this is a school you will fully enjoy. You will have small class instruction that will be unlike any regular dog/handler class. These are classroom style sessions with discussion, media, texts, and hands-on experience.
