Where does training take place?2020-12-22T13:52:33-05:00

We have an online portion that takes place online, and an in-person portion that takes place at one of our Lead Certification Trainer (LCT) locations. We will match you with the LCT location that best suits the learning path we designate for you.

How long is the training process?2020-12-22T13:52:53-05:00

The length of the training does depend on how much experience in the pet industry you have coming in. We have some owners that have joined our team with years of extensive dog training prior, so their learning path will be different than a new person with little to no prior experience. Regardless of your experience, you will receive extensive training on our systems, strategies, business models, and culture. To find out more about our training methods and process, get in touch with our team.

No. We have several franchise owners that are not the day-to-day trainers. These owners/investors have hired trainers that are trained within our systems to do the day to day training operations. This is a supported franchising model within our system designed and built to operate with ease. The trainers you hire will have to go through our entire training program and be approved to operate by one of our Lead Trainer Certification Teams.
