Apprenticeships

We have had many inquiries from people interested in learning the art of dog training. As such, we have decided to make a limited number of apprenticeships available to the public. We will be selective about who we accept as an apprentice.  We reserve the right to refuse anybody for any reason. This is not the usual give us your money nonsense course. If you do not show up, put in the hours and train the dogs to our standard you will receive no certification from us regardless of the fees you paid. Haz refuses to put his name behind anybody that he does not believe capable of properly training a dog.
