This program provides those who wish to become dog trainers with more than a basic education; students are offered the knowledge and skills required for professional trainers. The broad scope of Gaye Amick Dog Training's curriculum immediately prepares students to begin a full-time or part time career training dogs upon completion of our courses.
Ms. Amick believes fair and effective communication is key to improving and enhancing the relationship between dogs and people. She also believes the education of each dog must be approached on an individual basis. Each dog's training should be based on the dog's individual personality, past and present behavior, aptitude for learning, and the goals of the owner. We then address the varied approaches and methods to training dogs, which allow our students to have the ability to modify their approach in various situations. Professional dog trainers have a responsibility to understand that not every dog can fit into a singular method of training.
Professional dog training is a profitable and satisfying occupation whether as a career or second income. Our program specializes in teaching students obedience training, behavioral counseling, puppy development and customer relations. Additional Train the Trainer programs are available covering retrieval, assistance dog training, tracking/trailing, and scent detection.
