1. What is unique about your dog training school?
breed from their breeding stock. And many expect you to clean their kennels for them for free as part of your “kennel management” experience!
We teach you in the most practical situations: in the clients’ homes and in group settings– since the dogs will ultimately have to listen to their owners in their homes and around other dogs and people. And how else can you really evaluate a dog behavior problem unless you see the dog in these settings? You will accompany Anthony Jerone to clients’ homes and train dogs (all kinds of dog breeds, ages and temperaments) and their family members. For example, instead of teaching dogs to sit and stay and heel in an auditorium with minimal distractions, you will be teaching them at the dinner table, around the crawling baby, while visitors are coming in the door, etc. You will be teaching the heel command outside with all the distractions of cars, buses, other dogs and neighbors. We also provide you with amazing group training experience.
2. Who teaches the classes?
Anthony Jerone has the most unique credentials in the country and teaches all the classes and hands-on training. While most instructors went to a few seminars and read a few books before training dogs, Anthony Jerone has been dog training and solving all kinds of canine behavior problems full-time for 40 years. He received the most intense dog training in the U.S. Army and started the Canine Patrol program for NYC. And, in his spare time, he has been providing community services and successfully lobbying community boards to open dog parks in Queens county, New York. He is continulally sought after as a dog expert around the world by newspapers, TV stations, Radio stations and attorneys. You won’t find a more dedicated, successful or knowledgeable instructor anywhere.
3. Can I earn a living as a professional dog trainer?
Absolutely! If you receive the proper education and training experience, a dog training career is very exciting and rewarding both personally and financially. Most schools just teach you dog training commands. We teach you how to solve behavior problems and get the dog to listen to their owners in their own home so that you will have satisfied customers. We also teach you how to set up a successful dog training and canine behaviorist business. And we offer free career counseling and post-graduation support to all of our graduates. We have graduates from all over the world staying in contact with us for years with their questions and their success stories. Please feel free to call our graduates to see for yourself how successful our graduates really are. The pet care business is a multi-billion dollar industry. There is plenty of room for GOOD dog trainers out there. After going through our program, your options are endless. You can work full-time, part-time or on the side. You can start your own business or work for animal shelters, veterinarians or other training facilities; you can get involved with AKC shows, open a pet store, or enhance your ability to get on the police canine force. Our graduates have done all of these things and more.
4. Should I bring my own dog while I attend the professional dog trainer course?
It is not recommended that you bring your own dog if you are coming to our Academy as a full-time live-in student from out of town. The main reason is that it is important that you learn how to train all different breeds, ages and temperaments; not just your own dog. It is also very difficult to get temporary housing in NY that will accept dogs. You also will have very little time to spend with your dog while attending our Academy, since you will be training with us full-time, 6-7 days/week. The only other option would be to find a kennel for your dog, which can be expensive in NY.
5. How do I know if this is the right school for me?
How many dog training schools tell you who your instructor is and put their names on the web site? Your instructor and Grand Master Dog Trainer is Anthony Jerone. Find out who owns the school and who the instructors are. Research your instructors credentials and find out where they received their education. Is it possible that they just read a book? Visit the school while in session. Make sure the owner or the head instructor teaches the class. Remember, you researched the instructors credentials so make sure he or she is doing the instructing and that you are not being passed off to a novice for your education. After all your research, is not the instructors credentials the main reason that you are choosing the school? Call the Better Business Bureau or the Department of Consumer Affairs to see what kind of a track record they have. Correspondence courses are just an easy way to take your money. You do not learn the practicality of HANDS-ON training. Every dog is different and different methods of training are required.
