Holly’s feedback on her student: “Sheila has come very far with her dog handling skills. She explained each command thoroughly, and was able to focus a clueless puppy through the whole demo. She’s ready to be a professional dog trainer and is tackling the material very thoroughly and intelligently.”
“The entire staff have a great deal of experience as professional dog trainers and are extremely knowledgeable as well as very supportive and enthusiastic. The books/reading materials are very informative and the entire program is very well structured. I have learned so much over the last few months as a student at CATCH and could not be happier to be a part of this wonderful program. I would strongly recommend this program to anyone that wants to become a professional dog trainer.”
“I am very impressed with the students coming through this program. Well done. Thanks for allowing us to be involved. I very much enjoy working with these students.”

“I am a passionate Animal lover (my favorite beings dogs). Since I’ve been enrolled in CATCH Canine Trainers Academy I’ve been super happy and confident that after completing all the phases for my certificate for Dog Behavior that I will be successful in the real world. David, the founder which is the also the professor, is there every step of the way to help you out. You can call him anytime, and if you don’t get him (which is very rarely) you talk to a sweet assistant named Rebecca, once she gives him the message you will hear back from him right away. This is an AWESOME Academy and I recommend it to any one trying to pursue a career with dogs. Oh and did I mention it’s a GREAT price for the good benefit you get when you finish.”

“My Mentor Trainer hooked me up with a leader of a small group that meets on Tuesday mornings to work with some of the shelter dogs. I started yesterday! So now I’m coaching on Tuesdays, observing for 3 more weeks on Wednesdays, and dog walking on Fridays! Of course, there’s working with my student Paco, too! Getting lots of practice, which is great!
Yesterday I worked with an “extremely shy” young adult pit mix. She doesn’t do well with body handling. After the session, the person in charge of the group came over to me and said she wanted me to know that she thought I did a great job handling the dog. I thanked her and was just bursting with joy inside.
The process of becoming a dog trainer becomes more and more rewarding every day for me! I just wanted to let my professional teacher know! 🙂 Phase 4 has definitely taken the lead as my favorite!”
Nancy B. – CATCH Certified Mentor Trainer
De Tour Village, MI
“CATCH is probably the only canine training group I know of that promotes positive and intelligent methods without gimmicks or aversives. Recently someone asked me if I knew of a good way to get certified as a trainer, and I referred CATCH immediately. You guys are doing things right. Keep up the good work!”
Nancy referring to her student: “Over her year with CATCH, I have watched her confidence bloom. It never occurred to me this would be one side benefit of the CATCH program – it can change people’s lives! Jane hit the ground running and never looked back.”
Pam F., CCDT – Master Class Graduate
“I did a lot of research prior to selecting an on-line program to become a Professional Dog Trainer. What I found was some inexpensive programs that just wanted my money and didn’t really care about what I wanted or who I was. From the first phone call with the CATCH Canine Trainers Academy I was so impressed with the knowledge and the caring interest that they took in me. Unfortunately, I did not have the upfront money and I could not afford the monthly installment that they wanted. However, after letting them know of my financial hardship, they created a program that fit my educational needs as well as what I could afford. I was so grateful for this because I DID NOT want to go to one of the other companies. Additionally, I was impressed with the phone call and email that I received from David (the owner of CATCH Canine Trainers Academy) who was available to answer any and all of my questions and concerns.
After enrolling in CATCH Canine Trainers Academy, I have been extremely happy with the program. Kelly, my Program Director, is always so much fun to talk with (as is everyone else at CATCH Canine Trainers Academy) and so knowledgeable that I can’t wait to talk with her. They all make their time available to the students and are genuinely interested in making sure I understand every concept of this program.
The combination of textbooks and videos make understanding the concepts taught in the program easier to grasp, as well as the individual attention Kelly gives to me as I need. So far, I am not only enjoying what I am learning I am also having lots of fun putting it to use!
Thank You CATCH Canine Trainers Academy!”
Annie C., CCDT – Master Class Graduate
“After 20 years of working with dogs I decided to get an official trainer certification. I wanted one that provided useful information; included a practical, realistic, positive approach; and had a very active, knowledgeable support team. I found it all and more with Catch. The curriculum is great, the staff is very knowledgeable and experienced and they are always available. I strongly recommend Catch for a canine trainer program.”
“I have just started taking the Master’s Program with CATCH and really must say I am thrilled so far.
The learning materials and the design of the program are very thorough and well thought-out.
In addition, there is always somebody just a phone call or an email away to help me with any questions or concerns I have.
If my mentor Kelly doesn’t hear from me in a while, she always sends me an email to check up on me and my progress.
Even though I have a while to go before I finish this very complete course, I am already very excited for my future as a professional dog trainer!”

“Thank you for the extra point on my exam. I appreciate that you welcome the feedback about the exam questions and the way they can be interpreted. I love your school and have learned an incredible amount so far. My Mentor Trainer, Jane, is very helpful providing additional insight on how to resolve issues. She very closely follows everything I learned in the Study Guide.”
