The Secret Ingredient to Becoming a Successful Dog Trainer

So many things in life are difficult to achieve without having the right tools and knowledge.

Finding a street for the first time in a city without a navigation tool or map is almost impossible. However, with a voice to guide you each step of the way, it’s simple.

And baking a cake can be a nightmare when you’re guessing at what quantity of ingredients you need to use, yet with a clear step-by-step recipe, it’s so much easier.

Becoming a successful and respected dog trainer is no different.

And as with a recipe, once you are shown exactly what to do, your goal of becoming a dog trainer is totally achievable.

And so that leads you to the big question which is…

Where can you find all of the tools, resources and knowledge you need to become a successful dog trainer?


The Dog Trainer Academy: a 12-month training program that takes you through the transformation from dog lover to dog trainer.

Enrolling in the Dog Trainer Academy is a journey that will take you far beyond traditional dog training methods and will help you to see the world through the eyes of a dog. Through a collection of videos, audio files, and detailed course notes/lectures, you’ll discover how to work with a dog’s natural instincts so you and the dog can work together to achieve the goals of both you and the owners.

Doggy Dan has been using his proven dog training methods for a decade now, has close to 3,000 clients and has mastered the ability to change the lives of both dogs and owners through training without the use of any force or aggression.

When you join the Academy, you’ll quickly discover everything you need to know–from dog training methods to starting your own business–which will allow you to help dogs who are “beyond help” and make a lasting impact in the lives of our canine companions.

Here Are 8 Things That Make the Dog Trainer Academy Totally Unique:

Doggy Dan’s approach to dog training motivates owners to take responsibility

Motivating a dog owner to do the training rather than trying to train the dog yourself should not be a revolutionary idea. Yet, it’s not as common as you might expect. In the Dog Trainer Academy, you’ll discover how to educate and empower dog owners. Once dog owners become inspired and determined to succeed, they will do the training every day because they know it’s in their hands to create the change.

The Dog Trainer Academy training methods don’t rely on physical strength

Since dog training is not about looking to dominate or overpower dogs, anyone, even people who are older or are not physically strong, can learn to train dogs to “choose” to change of their own free will rather than through fear of repercussions that may follow.

You’ll be given a definitive guide to establishing a successful dog training business

To ensure your success as a dog trainer, the Dog Trainer Academy covers everything you will need to know to successfully set up your dog training business. This includes the secret to ensuring customer happiness, business building lessons and information on personal development.

You’ll discover an effective dog training foundation, based on a deep connection with the dogs

Doggy Dan’s training approach goes much deeper than simply training dogs with treats. His proven methods work through the instinct of the dog. This helps you form deep connections between dog and owner that allow your training to reach new levels.

Enjoy the benefits of online learning

As a student of the Dog Trainer Academy, there will be no need to spend thousands on travel and hotel costs to attend courses around the country in order to become a dog trainer. And there is certainly no need to waste hundreds of hours traveling to a campus each day to sit and listen to lectures.

The Dog Trainer Academy gives inside access to all the experience and success of Doggy Dan

As a member of the Dog Trainer Academy, you will have access to Doggy Dan through a private Facebook community, webinars and small group learning sessions so he can help guide you along on your journey to become a dog trainer.

The complete armchair experience

Inside the membership area, you’ll get to see Doggy Dan at work in his live consultations from the comfort of your armchair. Here, you’ll get to virtually sit and soak up the entire experience while you watch Doggy Dan as he visits people in their homes. Few things can be compared to watching a real consultation where you can follow the interaction with owner and dog from start to finish.

Designed for every learning style

The Dog Trainer Academy comes with videos to watch, audio files to listen to, and detailed course notes/lectures. This means that regardless of whether you’re audio, visual, or tactile learner, you’ll be able to benefit from this course.
