The decision to enroll in a course of study that can take anywhere from 9-16 months must be based on your personal needs and desires. Animal lovers looking to enroll in our Dog Trainer, Dog Groomer, Cat Trainer and Veterinary Assistant programs should understand that the first 80% of your 11-stage program will consist of home study. This will allow you to work for many months from the comfort and safety of your home. Once you reach stage 10, we will place you with a working professional dog trainer, rescue (for cats), grooming salon and/or veterinary hospital or clinic. Students enrolling in our Aquarium Maintenance Program should be aware that 100% of their course of study can be completed at home.
