It’s our mission to develop the most sought-after dog trainers in the industry.

That’s why we designed programs that tap into four generations of expert knowledge and experience. Our curriculum supports comprehensive skills that set students up for success in the canine training field.

All Kennelwood Academy programs blend hands-on training and real-world application with traditional seminars and lectures. Students learn industry insights from nationally recognized instructors whose expertise ranges from behavior modification and protection handling to pet connections and brand building.

A Kennelwood Academy education ensures graduates are well-rounded, versatile and armed with the tools they need to begin building their career the moment they leave campus.
