The Online Academy

The Academy is a monthly membership site designed to teach you both the science behind dog training AND give you step-by-step instructions on how to actually apply it to your service dog.  The academy is filled with videos, live trainings, and printable PDFs, all designed to help you train your own service dog.  As a member, you’ll have access to things like:

  • The Core Curriculum:  This is our Service Dog Training Pyramid turned into a full course showing you step-by-step how to train your own service dog from beginning to end.  Every lesson includes a written lesson, video examples, and downloadable pdfs.  Each stage in the pyramid is broken down in numerous levels (each with multiple lessons inside them).
  • Interactive live Master classes and Q&A sessions. Every week I spend time teaching on specific topics, do live training sessions with my dogs and where you can ask questions and request training demos. These are also recorded and saved inside the site.
  • The Resource Vault: Filled with videos on all kinds of training topics, replays of past web classes, downloadable pdfs, and more.
  • Task Training Library: This library is constantly growing and includes info on general task training as well as mini-courses on specific tasks.
  • Private Facebook group where you can ask questions and get feedback on your training videos. This is also where the live Q&As are held.

The Academy opens for registration only a few times a year, click the button to learn more!
