“LIVE” Obedience Trainer Program


Here are some comments from our recent graduates!

”  Wayne Booth is one of the toughest instructors I have ever studied under. He is dedicated to dog training and making the best trainers. His goal is for every student to be as technically competent a dog trainer as he is. Wayne has a vast knowledge about dogs but he also understands business. Wayne teaches his students to set up and run a business. He also continues to follow up on the graduates from his programs. What sets Wayne Booth apart from other trainers is that he wants his students to succeed in business for themselves. If you are willing to do the work and follow Wayne’s advice, you will succeed.  “
