Payment Plans

  • There is a $50 one-time payment plan fee applied to the first payment.
  • To calculate your payment plan: take the total cost of tuition and divide equally into monthly payments starting at the date of enrollment and finishing by the final month of class (May for Spring Session or December for Fall Session).

A non-refundable deposit of $2,500 is due on acceptance to secure enrollment. Because class sizes are kept small to ensure the most valuable learning experience, a deposit allows us to reserve your spot in the course.


From the Grads

"The wonderful trainers in the Dog Training Internship Academy (DTIA) helped make my dreams a reality. Not only do I have a greater understanding about how animals learn best and many hours of practice under my belt, but I also was given the skills to start my own dog training business right after graduation!" --Alyssa Hosbach, Owner of Dancing Tails Dog Training

From the Grads

"DTIA gave me a real understanding of the how and why of science-based, positive reinforcement training. I now come into new training situations with the ability to pinpoint all the necessary information and make a plan with confidence." --Sathid Pankaew, Behavior & Training Coordinator, East Bay SPCA

"Dog industry business consultant Veronica Boutelle recommended the DTIA program to me when I asked about apprenticeship programs. She is familiar with every program in the country and unequivocally pronounced the DTIA the best one available. Well, she didn’t oversell it." --Erik Grendahl, Canine Behavior Consultant
