Santa Clarita, Calif., February 23, 2015 – Animal Behavior College (ABC) today announced that 2 Hounds Design, Inc., AlcottTM, a Pet Adventures Worldwide Inc. (PAW) brand, and Charlee Bear® Dog Treats, have renewed their sponsorships for the school’s certified Dog Obedience Program (DOP). The sponsorship renewals are effectively immediately.
“Through these partnerships, Animal Behavior College has been able to offer Dog Obedience Program students information and access to some of the most popular dog treats and high-quality training equipment available in the pet industry,” said Steven Appelbaum, president and CEO of Animal Behavior College. “We appreciate each company’s commitment, belief in Animal Behavior College's mission and their support for professional dog trainer education. We look forward to another successful partnership this year.”
2 Hounds Design, Inc. is a leading manufacturer and distributor of dog collars and leashes. Best known for its patented Freedom No-pull Harness, which tightens gently around a dog’s chest to discourage pulling, the Monroe, North Carolina-based company uses premium hardware and fabrics to create pet collars that are not only beautiful and colorful, but durable and comfortable.
Known for its exclusive line of adventure canine products geared for owners who engage in active lifestyles with their dogs, Alcott offers a wide-range of products from travel beds and life jackets to reflective collars and leashes. With five well-thought-out, beautifully designed product categories—Essentials, Explorer, Traveler, Mariner and Storybook—the West Chester, Ohio-based manufacturer offers safe and practical products that encourage fun activities and positive interactions between dog owners and their four-legged friends.
Once handmade in a neighborhood bakery more than 21 years ago, Charlee Bear® Dog Treats has become a key manufacturer with product distribution channels across the U.S., Canada and Japan. The company offers two product lines, Charlee Bear Dog Treats and Bear Crunch Dog Treats (a grain-free version), which come in a variety of flavors, including liver, cheese & egg, and bacon & blueberry and chicken, pumpkin & apple, respectively, to name a few. Resembling oyster crackers, the dog treats contain only three calories each and are popular among dog trainers and owners due to their small size and Pocket PerfectTM (no stains, no smells, no grease or crumbs in the pocket) portability.
In addition to dog training certification, ABC offers certification through its Grooming Instruction Program (GIP) and Veterinary Assistant Program (VAP). The school also offers a variety of timely ISPs (individual study programs) on subjects such as cat management and training, pet nutrition, pet massage, pet sitting and training shelter dogs.
Currently, ABC has 13 sponsors including Andis Corp, Groomer’s Choice, Cardinal Pet CareTM, Miracle CorpTM, PetAg Inc. and WAHLTM Clipper Corporation.
