is your dream to be a professional dog trainer?

The Dog Training Internship Academy could be for you.

The Dog Training Internship Academy is a unique, 6-month internship program for anyone striving for excellence in science-based pet dog training and professional client consultation.

Based in the San Francisco East Bay, the program runs from February to July and again from June to November each year and admits only 6 students per cycle. With a part-time course of approximately 14 hours of study and practice per week on evenings and weekends, you can continue running your business or working at your day job while you attend DTIA.

We give you the skills needed to confidently address any issue you might come across in your work with dogs. As a DTIA graduate, you enjoy the peace of mind of knowing you can change dog behavior and help your clients.

We teach-and use-only force-free training methods.


We are very excited to announce a new DTIA session for 2013, beginning in June and running through November.   Master trainer Emma Clarke will teach this additional session.   To see more about our instructors. click here. We are now accepting applications for this class.
