The Academy periodically offers quarter- and half-tuition scholarships to aspiring dog professionals. Scholarships are based on both merit and need. Prior experience working with or training/handling dogs is a plus, but we also reserve a number of scholarships for individuals with little or no experience who just love dogs and can demonstrate the drive needed to succeed.

Start an Exciting New Career as a Dog Professional
The "Certification Course in Dog Training" is authored and directed by current working professionals in the dog industry. The goal of the course is to educate and certify dog lovers so they can start dog-related careers. The course is 24 weeks long, with a workload of 4-6 hours/week (although it can be completed more quickly if desired). Only 2-3 hours/week are spent on “book work,” with the rest devoted to hands-on projects and practice.
We engage our students through personal mentoring, hands-on assignments, and business development exercises. Course topics covered include training theory and practice, basic grooming, setting up a dog-related business (e.g. daycare, obedience training, walking/sitting, behavioral consulting, etc.), dog psychology, etc.
If you love dogs and want to set yourself on the path to a rewarding career as a dog professional, consider applying for one of our scholarships. If you are chosen as a finalist, you may be contacted via email or phone.
