Natural Dog Training, Behavior & Health

Learn the philosophy of natural dog training and how to defuse reactivity in your dog with kindness and earn a certificate of completion!

Owning a dog is a lifetime commitment. The journey you embark on with your canine companion is endless.

“When You Change The Way You Look At Things, The Things You Look At Change” (Dr. Wayne Dyer). When we change the way we look at our dogs, our relationship with them will change. Each dog comes into our lives for a reason, to teach us how to live in peace and harmony and be one with nature.

This class will educate you in the philosophy of natural dog training and how to defuse reactivity. You’ll also learn about animal behavior and how it all correlates to health.

Our classes and courses are designed to be taken at your own pace so they can be completed in as little time or as much time as you have. An average for this class module is about 2 months.

Coursework includes the use of books, audio and video presentations.

This certificate class may be taken for 15 learning units of  continuing education credit if you are a graduate of the American Council of Animal Naturopathy.


As in most educational courses, you will be required to purchase books and/or DVDs in addition to the course/module fee. Each class has its own required text book reading as well as essays or projects that are used to determine a passing grade before the student can proceed to the next class.
