My experience with The Naughty Dogge's Apprenticeship program was amazing and I would fully recommend it (and have many times) to others interested in pursuing any career working with dogs.
Monique not only opened my eyes to the intricacies of dog behaviour and retraining different behavioural issues, but she also gave me hundreds of hours of solid training and teaching time with lots of constructive feedback and advice. I not only learned about dog behaviour, training and husbandry, but about teaching people, both in group and private lessons, and about successfully running a business. Through my experiences with Monique I have also become hooked on dog sports and was successful in rehabilitating my own reactive dog into a happy, fun obedience partner and demo dog for my classes.
I had researched different dog schools for almost a year prior to deciding on Naughty Dogge. This is by far the most bang for your buck, since I got so much one on one time with Monique, working with hundreds of clients and their dogs; learning about many different behavioural issues. Teaching classes and private lessons myself gave me important experience and skills, especially with a mentor there to coach and guide me through the process and provide good feedback. Monique is an excellent teacher, and really strived to ensure I understood not only how to apply different training methods, but the reason and research behind them.
I am so grateful to Monique and The Naughty Dogge for truly going above and beyond what I expected of the program, and providing me with the a true education that is miles ahead of all the other dog training schools I had compared with hers, both in price and experience.
