Our training tracks include the following educational courses:
Students are assigned a dog for the duration of the training program. Additionally, all students participate in kennel maintenance and management. Upon successful graduation from the program, our students receive a professional dog training certification, credit hours towards accreditation with nationally recognized professional dog training organizations, along with additional certifications in Pet First Aid, Dog CPR and Advanced Pet Safety, Dog Walking, Dog Emotion & Cognition, Animal Welfare & Behavior, and Animal Psychology.
We recognize that one of the challenges in many communities, especially in less populated areas, has been in providing community-based options, particularly for at-risk youth.

Additionally, Redemption Road K9 offers classes and certifications in:
