Get CEUs, level up your dog training skills at the last Advanced Academy


It’s the end of an era.

When we started AnimalSense Academy in 2008 , the dream was to make working with dogs accessible to anyone and everyone, make the world a better place for animals through humane-based, research-based methodology, and create a community around both of those things. Over the years since Academy opened its doors, we collectively taught thousands of classes, trained tens of thousands of dogs, changed our name to CanineLink, and, finally, to FetchFind Academy.  I met so many smart, funny, fantastic people through the Academy programs that it leaves me speechless when I sit down to think about it.

But good things do sometimes come to an end (if only to make way for even better things). It is with a heavy, but proud, heart that I let you know the final FetchFind Academy Advanced Training program will happen this spring. This will be the last opportunity for you or your employees to take this comprehensive training program in its current form.

What you’ll get:

  • 20 weeks of hands on classroom and hands on learning from Chicago’s top dog training and behavior experts
  • Science based, positive reinforcement
  • Hands-on experience with a variety of demo dogs
  • Comprehensive training in handling and treating behavior problems, counseling clients, teaching and modifying behavior

We’ve added an extra month to the beginning of the program so that even if you haven’t been through our Essentials program, don’t have formal dog training experience, or if it’s been a while since you were in the classroom, you can still be ready to go out and get a position as a professional dog trainer by September 2018.

For business owners who want to add another revenue stream, this is the perfect opportunity to educate your best employee(s) and turn them into dog trainers.

If you’re already a dog trainer, but want to increase your skill level and get valuable continuing education credits, you’ll get 30 CEUs (certified through APDT) and connections throughout the dog training community. Many of our alumni obtained positions at boutique and multi-location training facilities immediately after graduation from Academy, have gone on to become CPDT-KA, and even started their own dog training companies!

Advanced Academy runs April 11 through August 29, 2018 (Wednesday evenings, 6:30-9:30 pm).

Finally, there are only 4 spots left, so don’t delay.

All the best,

Jamie Sig Trans - First Only
