Karen Pryor Academy is the trusted place to go to learn about teaching and training with positive reinforcement.

I should know, I’ve known and worked with these folks for years. I’m both a graduate of the professional program and now I’m also an instructor.

They offer multiple online classes featuring some of my personal dog training heroes, like Ken Ramirez, Debbie Martin, and Michele Pouliot. You can take foundation classes, learn advanced skills, or apply for their professional trainer certification program (like moi!).
