As a founder of a non-profit dog rescue, I am often in situations where you are dealing with scared or rambunctious dogs in need of structure and solid direction. I signed up for the 500-hour “Train the Trainer” program through Huffman k9 to help me advance my skillset for my non-profit. This immersive course provides everything you need to be successful by pairing you with seasoned trainers as you work with the dogs directly, and puts you through a robust curriculum with testing to vet and solidify your knowledge along the way. Since completing the program, I was able to immediately apply the knowledge I have gained directly with rescue dogs in need of basic obedience and behavioral rehabilitation.  I’ve searched for many years looking for the right training course, and I can’t say enough good things about this program. They get results. They never turn a dog away, regardless of disposition, and that really spoke to me. This course is well worth the effort and fee. I’m a proud graduate of this program and would recommend it to anyone who wants to work with dogs in any capacity. There’s no one more knowledgeable than Jensen Huffman. His program works!
