Training Certifications

We are certified training partners with the Karen Pryor Academy. 

Why Choose a KPA CTP

All dogs deserve great trainers. Every Karen Pryor Academy Certified Training Partner (KPA CTP) is a graduate of our Dog Trainer Professional program and has demonstrated excellent technical knowledge and hands-on skills in positive teaching and training. A KPA CTP is a trainer you and your pets can count on.

Selecting a KPA CTP from our Find-a-Trainer search means that your trainer:

  • Is skilled in using positive teaching and training techniques with you and your pet to make training fun.

  • Is educated about using science and behavior-based methods to make training more efficient.

  • Can customize a training program specifically designed to help you and your pet communicate and succeed together.

  • Participates in programs for quality assurance and continuing education to ensure the training you receive is based on modern research and technology.

  • Pledges to teach and train using force-free principles so that you and your dog develop a bond built on trust and respect.
