In recent years, we have been contacted several times with requests for information regarding the backgrounds of individual dog trainers claiming to have been Certified by K-9 Companions.
Because of this we have compiled a list for easy access for people to locate the individuals by name and whether or not they were trained or Certified by us. Certified indicates that the individual took the dog trainer course and was tested on knowledge and practical application.
We require that trainees have mentored hands on experience at our facility prior to Certification. All other listed dog trainers (non-certified) were trained from the level of kennel tech through trainer or Certified Master Trainer with 1 year or more of practical experience working with owners and dogs. Dates indicate the years of experience with K-9 Companions with or without certification. For anyone who cares to check you will see a number of dog trainers currently doing business in the United States as well as other countries.
This list is not complete. If your name needs to be added please contact us for additions or corrections that should be made. CMT indicates Certified Master Trainer.
