Are you thinking about making a career change, but worried about what it’ll be like? Many people who are considering attending Dog Trainer College to become a world-class dog trainer wonder what life is like for students. Let’s take a closer look at what students can come to expect during their studies at Dog Trainer College.
Attending classes at Dog Trainer College is very fulfilling for dog lovers of all kinds. You’ll spend your days surrounded by skillful dogs and talented trainers and instructors, who will help you learn training methods and how to connect with the dogs. Some classes are held in a classroom, covering lectures and traditional classroom-style instruction, but most of the learning is done in the field. That means you’ll be working outdoors with actual dogs to hone your techniques, so make sure to pack appropriate clothing for the season.
Speaking of packing, many students come to us from far away, which is why we offer comfortable student lodging options. You’ll have a private room with a shared bath. Attending the college with your partner or spouse? We can accommodate you in the same room so that you can still enjoy your life together outside of class.

We’re also only about an hour’s drive from Indianapolis, making city conveniences just a short trip away. Whatever you need, you’ll find it all in the area of Dog Trainer College.
Perhaps the best part about living at Dog Trainer College is that you’re allowed to bring up to two of your own dogs! You can train your own pup as you progress through the course. This is a great way to try out your new training skills on a dog that already trusts you, and will help you build an even deeper bond with your pup once the training is completed.
