Thank you for your interest in our dog trainer programs. Well-trained dog trainers seem to be in more demand each and every year, training dogs for all types of work including Obedience, Narcotic Detection, Arson Detection, Cell Phone Detection, Termite Detection, Bed Bug Detection, AKC competition, dogs for service work including dogs for the handicapped and the hearing impaired, as well as training Fido to be a well-mannered household pet. Our goal is to provide you with the necessary knowledge to help you reach your goal of becoming a knowledgeable dog trainer.

Our Live Distance Learning Programs are taught using a new online meeting service that enables individuals and organizations to easily and securely collaborate, present information and demonstrate online. This service is a unique new way to conduct online training.

The Live Distance Learning Programs actually bring us into your training area to help you train.  The power of the internet is going to help you with the training process by having us right there with you as you train so that you can get instant feedback.

Canine Behavior Specialists Network is the pioneer in this new way of learning for dog trainers.  Our methodology will allow you to have 1 on 1 training without the traditional on campus program. Your experience is supplemented with written material and instructional CD’s and DVD’s.

Using these new technologies we are able to give you:

. Presentations: We are able to teach a class to our online audience with no travel or lodging costs to those attending the program.
. Demonstrations: We are able to see you working with your dog “LIVE” as well as present slide shows, video presentations and lectures whether you are across town or a thousand miles away.
. Collaboration: You have the benefit of meeting with your instructor live and online to share and discuss ideas and concepts.

As a member of our program, you will be involved in one on one training with our highly qualified instructors. Our programs are structured to insure you get the best possible understanding of the training methods being used. What better way to learn the training techniques than by putting them to immediate use at home!

You will not only learn to train dogs, but you will also learn the ins and outs of kennel management. We will show you how to get your kennel up and running as quickly as possible. Our training staff is available to answer any questions you might have regarding how to start your own training program.

Please browse our web site to discover more exciting information about our programs. We look forward to meeting you soon.
