ABC Mentorship

The Animal Behavior College is partnering with Service Dogs for America in a mentorship program. The online curriculum to become a Certified Dog Trainer includes a portion where an advanced ABC student will work with an ABC Mentor Trainer, observing and participating in the instruction of basic obedience cues—we like to call them the BIG 5: sit, stay, come, down, heel, and loose leasing walking. The student will have a chance to work with individual dogs under the guidance and supervision of our Head Trainers/ABC Mentor Trainer. ABC students will be applying the various training techniques just observed or have learned in earlier classes. Our ABC Mentor will evaluate the ABC student performance and provide suggestions, guidance and constructive critique of their skills.
