All of our Canine Specialists undergo extensive learning and training for dog safety in an off-leash environment. Learning begins with a 20+ hour training program developed by The Dog Gurus, followed by close supervision from more senior Canine Specialists. Our senior Canine Specialists are experienced dog trainers who have attended the Trish King Academy of Dog Behavior, as well as numerous other dog training classes and seminars.
