Choose from our highly hands-on, humane, and intensive 3, 6 and 12 month Dog Trainer Academy programs, ideal for:

  • Aspiring dog trainers or dog-related business owners, such as doggie-daycare owners, groomers, professional pet-sitters and more.
  • Current dog trainers or business owners seeking continued education for themselves or their staff.
  • Graduates of an on-line dog trainer academy seeking hands-on skills.
  • Shelter or rescue workers and volunteers who want to reduce risks of negative interactions, and help more dogs become adoptable.
Our comprehensive, praise-based curriculum takes a cutting-edge approach to dog training.  Students will learn about modern, science-based techniques and canine behavior. We strive to provide a strong foundation of theory and application, holistically teaching solid handling skills through extensive hands-on practice.

Students will also learn from Grace Dog Training & Behavior Owner Ana Melara, and other business experts, about the business side of dog training, including how to start a new career, build and grow their own company, client relations, marketing, and more.

Finally, at the Rocky Mountain Regional Dog Trainer Academy, you become more than a student — you become part of a team and a community.  We develop relationships with our students, so we know how to best encourage their unique strengths, interests and dreams. We’re there each step of the way, offering guidance that helps students increase their knowledge and hone their skills. Upon admission, you will have access to the RMRDTA private Facebook group. You will meet all current students and graduates. You’ll learn about upcoming job opportunities, seminars and workshops and you’ll benefit from the great discounts and freebies that the Rocky Mountain Regional Dog Trainer Academy and Grace Dog Training & Behavior have to offer.
