Helping You Create a

Career You Love!

We exist to give you the education you need to step confidently into your very own dog training business.

In our comprehensive program, you'll be solely responsible for training, start to finish, a variety of dogs with different temperaments and different breeds.

You'll get the theory you need to know, but more importantly, you'll get the hands on experience to practice and refine your skills. Not only that, you'll learn how to effectively coach humans, and how to build a business that thrives.

Our Training Philosophy

At the Peninsula School for Dog Trainers, you'll receive a well rounded education. Our training philosophy is relationship-based. While we feel it's important you learn about many styles of training in our program, our hands on training will lean heavily on the use of rewards to shape desirable behavior, and forge positive associations.

Phase 2: Residency (in person) : You'll work hands on with our trainers on site, training dogs. Your residency lasts 12 weeks and during that time, you'll be responsible for training a variety of dogs, start to finish.

Phase 3: Instruction (in person) : In the final month of your residency, you'll begin the instruction phase of your schooling. You'll begin teaching group classes, and you'll begin coaching clients under the direct supervision of one of our trainers.
