After training killer whales, and becoming a leader in the dog training industry, Joel Beckman is launching a Dog Trainer Academy to equip a new generation of dog trainers.
It is our mission at Beckman's Dog Trainer Academy to equip individuals to be the most talented, knowledgeable, confident, skilled and profitable dog trainers in the industry.
Gain knowledge in behavioral principals and training theory including operant conditioning, classical conditioning, shaping, fading, bridging, and more. Know what your competitors are doing and understand the "why" behind different methods. Joel will instruct and explain all behavioral principles and how to apply them when working with dogs and clients.
The only way to develop skills is through constant hands-on training with dogs. At the Academy, you will work with a variety of dogs in a safe and clean environment training basic obedience, behavior modification and developing skills with groups of dogs. You will learn first hand how to teach group classes, in-home training sessions and the effective methods behind board and train programs.
Joel knows it is important to be a confident trainer--especially when dealing with difficult dogs and challenging clients. The Beckman Way embraces the philosophy that confidence comes through hours upon hours of hands-on work with dogs. At the Academy, you will be working with dogs constantly... during lectures, training exercises, group sessions and even while playing games.
Most dog trainers train dogs as a hobby. Joel is one of the few trainers in the country who has built a large, vibrant, and profitable business that serves the public and his partners. If you are thinking about leaving your full-time job or hoping to take your dog training career to the next level, Joel wants to share his methods with you! He wants you to be effective, successful and profitable!
