The Process

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.

1. Determine whether you meet the criteria to join as a DogSmith license without any additional basic training.  Choose an option DogSmith Puppies

a)     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. The enrollment fee for this is $500.00. 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.

b)     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. The enrollment fee for this licence  is $1100.00. 

c)      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. The license fee for this is $2500.00 and 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
