Application & Tuition

Our Commitment

The Academy aims for excellence. We set very high standards for our graduates, which is exactly what the dog training industry most needs. Because of this, we accept only a minority of applicants so please take care with your application, and read our site thoroughly to see what the course involves. Our Mission & Code of Conduct can be read here.


What to Expect

Once your application is submitted, it can take up to a month to receive an answer, and occasionally more at heavy periods.  We take on students on a rolling basis, depending on movement through the program by existing students.  Because this, along with the number of pending applications, is difficult to predict, please be patient.  That said, if you’ve not heard anything in a month, it is prudent to check in.

The Academy vets applicants on their fit for the curriculum and for our discussion culture.  We take in information from the application proper and from any pertinent public-facing professional content, such as websites and social media.  But do note that not having such content is in no way a detriment to a candidate’s acceptance chances.


Tuition Amount

Academy Tuition is $8225.  

Please note that once course materials have shipped, we regret we do not offer tuition refunds.
