Becoming a Dog Trainer: RMRDTA (reoccurring payments)
Becoming a Dog Trainer: Academy Students (One time payment)
Our comprehensive, praise-based curriculum takes a cutting-edge approach to dog training. Students will learn about modern, science-based techniques and canine behavior. We strive to provide a strong foundation of theory and application, holistically teaching solid handling skills through extensive hands-on practice.
Students will also learn from Grace Dog Training & Behavior Owner Ana Melara, and other business experts, about the business side of dog training, including how to start a new career, build and grow their own company, client relations, marketing, and more.
You become more than a student — you become part of a team and a community. We develop relationships with our students, so we know how to best encourage their unique strengths, interests and dreams.
We’re there each step of the way, offering guidance that helps students increase their knowledge and hone their skills. Upon admission, you will have access to the RMRDTA private Facebook group. You will meet all current students and graduates. You’ll learn about upcoming job opportunities, seminars and workshops and you’ll benefit from the great discounts and freebies.
Ana has provided invaluable assistance to our shelter by training staff and volunteers to handle and train dogs to improve their quality of life and ultimately become more adoptable. We incorporate the lessons Ana has taught us on a daily basis.
