Get Started on the Fast Track !

Here at the DogSmith we are sitting on tens of thousands of dollars of business and marketing tools and resources that we want to share with competent, ethical and highly motivated pet professionals. The investment to join the DogSmith is less than it would cost you to go it alone and the ongoing small monthly fee to cover the cost of all of these resources will make you smile not grimace.  


The Steps

  • Start by watching our DogSmith video and understand what we do, what we have to offer and how we can help you.  Click here
  • Determine whether you meet the criteria to join as a DogSmith license without any additional basic training.  Choose an option 

PART ONE – Choose Your License Type

DogSmith Puppies

  • Option ONE.

If you have a recognized Dog Training or Behavior certificate, not required for pet care services as our pet care training is covered in all licenses, then you are eligible for the basic license. We will do a skill gap analysis with you so we can provide supplemental training if needed in key behavior topics such as resource guarding, fear, aggression and how to functionally analyze behavior.

  •  Option TWO

If you do not have a recognized Dog Training or Behavior Certificate then you will choose the licensing option that includes all three levels of  The Training Meister Program.  This will prepare you for the CTT-Accreditation  through The Pet Professional Accreditation Board

  •  Option THREE

 If you have some  training experience and wish to operate and license The DogSmith Behavior Consultation services then choose option 3. This includes the DogNostics Dog Behavior Diploma Program. This license fee  gives you complete access to this program and certification process. This diploma program will prepare you for the PCT-Accreditation  through The Pet Professional Accreditation Board

*Each license program has an enrollment fee that covers your transition and access to all The DogSmith intellectual property, Trademarks, Services, Systems and Programs. Then 6 months after you join and have fully transitioned into The DogSmith we initiate a small  monthly fee that covers all of the benefits and support services you receive.  This will be confirmed to you and your initial set up fee during our preliminary discussions*

Start the process today!

Complete the application form above, we will then send you a short form to sign and acknowledge you are in receipt of the above documents. You can then pay your initial fee and we are all set to start your transition
