You've heard dogs are man’s best friend. But do you know why?

Dogs were the first animal we domesticated, about 30 000 years ago – and they’ve been running beside us ever since. For thousands of years, we’ve been finding ways to better understand our four-legged friends and get closer to them. The first written dog training manual we’ve discovered dates back to 116 B.C - and we’ve learned a lot since.

If you love dogs, if you see the value they bring to our lives, knowing how to properly train them is essential. Maybe you’d like to spread the joy and help people get closer with their four-legged companion. Or maybe you’re looking to get to know your own dog better. To do any of that, you need to be able to understand dogs; you need to speak their language. You need to be a Dog Trainer.

“Dogs do speak, but only to those who know how to listen” – Orhan Pamuk
