Get to know our team of instructors. We combine our love for animals with education, experience and scientifically-based training methods. You may notice the credentials at the ends of our names. Not all dog trainers have certifications. MuttSchool’s instructors are either certified or are working toward the training hours required to take the rigorous Certification Council for Professional Dog Trainers (CCPDT) exams. This certification demonstrates that your instructor has mastered humane, science-based dog training practices. To maintain our certifications, we are expected to complete yearly continuing education. The more MuttSchool instructors learn, the more we can pass on to our clients. You can rest assured that you and your dog are receiving the most recent, effective training methods when you bring your dog to MuttSchool.
