School for Dog Trainers

The programs in our school for dog trainers can be modified and combined. Classes are 4 hours in duration at minimum. Class dates and times can be flexible. Our 10.5 acre training centre is located in Maple Ridge, British Columbia, Canada.

We provide maintenance training for corporate clients and their K9 Units. If your desired training discipline coincides with the unit’s cirriculum, you will take part as an instructor’s assistant in the maintenance program.

If you would like to learn how to train something specific that is not listed in the programs list, we can create a program for you to reach your education goals.
