Put an End to the Guesswork and Get Confident in Your Employee Training Once and for All!
It used to take months for our team to complete training and now it’s less than a week.
Dog Handler Academy has been an amazing addition to our training program. Our employees receive educational information as soon as they are enrolled and once their training is completed they are knowledgeable in many areas of the canine industry. This is an amazing program and we highly recommend it. Our team comments on how much they love the content vs. other training programs. It used to take months for our team to complete training and now it’s less than a week.
Training for your dog daycare employees without proper, consistent training materials and resources may cost you $3,500+ a month.
Does that figure take your breath away? It should!
That is your hard-earned money walking out the door every time an employee quits.
Our online training video-based courses and quizzes will fast-track your staff into understanding the basics of dog handling in less than a month and SAVE YOU MONEY.
This program has helped me to finally implement standards for training new hires.
Training staff has to be one of the most difficult parts of our business. This program has helped me to finally implement standards for training new hires. DHA makes it so much easier, and even fun! The videos are quick and knowledgeable and it’s easy to keep track of how your employees are progressing. I have also learned a lot myself. What a wonderful (and reasonably priced) resource!
Keeps the team engaged, and extremely informative.
The training videos are excellent. They are short, which keeps the team engaged, and extremely informative. I highly recommend the Dog Handler Academy to anyone in the boarding & daycare industry.
CONSISTENT EMPLOYEE TRAINING
Your employees are trained on industry best practice standards using real-life scenarios.
No more waiting for a situation to come up so you can train your new employees on how to handle it!
real-life daycare CONTENT (FOR YOU AND YOUR TEAM)
Your team will watch our real-life scenario videos and take quizzes on proper dog handling techniques and safety measures for a dog daycare and boarding environment. You get exclusive content for owners/managers.
Our member site is completely mobile friendly! Whether on a desktop computer, tablet, or mobile device, your team members can access our members-only learning platform. You can manage your team, view the courses, and access our Facility Resources from your device of choice as well.
View your employees’ progress any time on your Facility Dashboard. You’ll receive email progress notifications when an employee completes a course or if they’re falling behind on completing their coursework in 1, 2, or 3 weeks after gaining access to a course.
quizzes and Automated grading
Your employees must pass a quiz at the end of each module with a score of 80% or higher in order to gain access to the next module or course. Quizzes are graded automatically, so it’s hands off for you!
certificates OF completion
Your employees can save and/or print their certificates of completion for your personnel records, serving as proof of training (and to aid you in any potential workman’s comp or unemployment issues).
Give your team a solid foundation to grow professionally.
Unlike a lot of other industry programs, DHA keeps your attention. Each module is short and interesting. It goes over the very basics and builds upon those to give your team a solid foundation to grow professionally.
Training your dog daycare and boarding staff has never been easier!
The Dog Handler Academy Monthly Membership is an online training program to help educate staff members of dog daycares, boarding facilities, shelters, grooming salons, and vet clinics who work with dogs.

No! All of the quizzes are online and graded for you, so there’s no printing quizzes or grading quizzes. (The only thing you may wish to print out would be your employees’ course completion certificates for your records—or simply save the PDF instead of printing.)
We will send out an email whenever content is updated, so you can determine if existing staff needs to watch new or updated content modules. This is a great opportunity for you to use incentives for continuing education for your staff.
As the administrator, you have complete access to add or remove users (employees). Please note that if an employee leaves your business and starts work at a different business, they do NOT retain their training certificate from Dog Handler Academy.
