Here's What's Covered Inside The Academy: 

    • Dog Communication

      Learn how dogs communicate with each other and discover how to read dogs and understand what they're thinking, as well as what actions they are likely to take. It's very different than we humans communicate and once you learn this, you'll feel like you're in the conversation dogs are having. 

    • Obedience Training

      Learn how to teach dogs the basic commands step by step and how to get more compliance from the dogs and set your clients up for success. You'll also learn how to teach group classes, including getting all syllabuses, homework sheets and waivers that you can use. And you''ll also see videos of actual classes so you can see how they are done. 

    • Private Behavioral Consults

      Discover how to structure in-home behavioral consultations so that you can best help your clients and run your business smoothly. You'll learn everything from scheduling to paperwork to how to interact with your clients to make sure you do the best job possible and you clients get the best results. 

    • Achieving Behavior Change

      You'll learn the foundational things that will improve all dog behavior - regardless of what the issue or situation is - including implementing the proper structure that will have huge ripple effects on a dog's long term behavior. 

    • Common Problems

      Learn what the most common issues you'll be facing as a dog trainer - this is stuff that almost every dog has at some point and you will need to work on with your clients. Things like jumping, chewing, barking, etc... 

    • Fear & Anxiety

      Get a good understanding of why dogs develop fears and exactly how you can help them improve and overcome them to improve their (and their human's) life in dramatic ways. Shy dogs require a very special training protocol or you can end up making the problem worse. This is my favorite thing to work on and I'll show you the techniques I use with my clients. 

    • Aggression

      Learn how to best work with dogs who are grumpy with people and or dogs, while keeping you safe. I'll show you how to determine what cases you can improve and what dogs are best not to work with. 

    • Puppies

      Learn everything you need to know about how to train young pups so that they mature into well behaved adult dogs. This is the most important part of a dog's life and where you can be of the most help to people. We'll go over everything from house training to socialization to nipping to leaning household rules. 

    • Working With Different Breeds

      Different kinds of dogs were bred to do different tasks which causes them to exhibit certain behaviors. You'll learn how each breed affects the dog's behavior and what you need to consider when working with these dogs so you can the best out of them. 

    • Starting Your Business

      Once you've soaked up all the great info on dog training and behavior it's time to launch your dog training business. You'll learn the step by step process to starting your business and what you need to do in the beginning to start getting clients and making money as a dog trainer.

    Sandy Sparks, FernDog Graduate

    When I started the FernDog Trainer Academy, I already had a dog training certificate from another organization. My decision to further my education with the FernDog Trainer Academy has proven to be invaluable. This program is very easy to understand and has great wealth of knowledge that you will not get anywhere else. I still find myself looking back at the coursework and using it for reference.

    You have no idea what being able to take your course has done for me. I loved your course! There was so much valuable information. I completed each lesson within a day or 2 of getting it because I was so excited. I really appreciate what you do! Even more I appreciate the price which made the beginning of this journey possible for me!
