Dog Trainer’s School

Pro-Train offers a No Nonsense, practical approach in the development of your abilities in an exciting and rewarding career of dog training.

Our program is designed to actually prepare you, upon completion, to work; not just to know dogs. Many schools give you a knowledge of dogs, but Pro-Train offers you more. Pro-Train trains you to be both physically and mentally prepared to become a leader and an innovative instructor.

You will work with many dogs of all types, small, large, good temperament as well as weak, both dominant and submissive, and high-strung as well as very calm.

We sell ourselves; and show you how to be good enough and confident enough to do the same. We don’t sell the “sizzle”, for example, the slick presentations and overnight dog trainers: here today and gone tomorrow. We pride ourselves in giving you the abilities and philosophy to present your new knowledge in a manner which will be well received by your customers and make you proud of your accomplishments.

Put your money in your career, invest in yourself.

Pro-Train works with a limited number of trainees, usually 3-4 maximum to enable us to give very specific instruction customized to your interests and needs.
