“I was a volunteer at a local shelter for a few years, it was a humbling experience not knowing how to deal with the “challenging” dogs. Ana came and did a one day seminar on how to deal with shelter dogs. I was inspired by her ability to get results without even touching the dog! That’s when I decided to enroll in her Rocky Mountain Regional Dog Trainer Academy. One of the best choices I’ve ever made! Ana gave me the tools to work with a number of dogs with a variety of challenges. I have since started my own dog training business and earned my Certified Professional Dog Trainer certification and am planning to earn more certifications. Thank you Ana for your continued support! What a wonderful journey it has been!”

Before I enrolled in the Rocky Mountain Regional Dog Trainer Academy, I was a press operator at a print shop and I’d just finished another dog-training school that left me feeling under-experienced and not prepared to call myself a dog trainer. I found Ana and she told me about the academy. Now, I am more than  qualified.

Ana, you’ve truly given me the tools and confidence to do exactly what I want to do with my life. Training and working with dogs is what recharges my soul, and every time I work with a new dog I think of you!”

“In August of 2012, I received the Training with Grace newsletter and saw that Ana was accepting apprentices for the Rocky Mountain Regional Dog Trainer Academy. I immediately sent off my application and fee. Everyone there made me feel welcome and I knew that it was right. The next step was the phone interview with Ana where I felt an immediate connection which fanned my passion for working with dogs even more. I was ecstatic!Ana’s devotion and passion to work with dogs is truly contagious! I got to experience working alongside Ana in the apprentice classes, the Family Dog classes and joined her on many private training sessions for more difficult behavior cases.

The Rocky Mountain Regional Dog Trainer Academy has truly been a God send!

Now, as I continue on my own journey, I too go forth with a devotion to teach the other end of the leash.

Bring it world!”
