Professional Dog Trainers
CCH dog trainers are certified by the Certification Council for Professional Dog Trainers and full members of the Pet Professional Guild. Additionally, our trainers are qualified professionals who work with individuals with disabilities.
Dogs with Future Jobs
The CCH training model for dogs that are being raised and/or trained by individuals or families for specific jobs is based on a continuum of skill development. The CCH philosophy is to improve the partnership between dog and handler to the highest potential possible and to provide ongoing support throughout the partnership. Some dogs will progress to specific skill levels to work in public while other dogs will be performing their job in a more private function within family homes. We honor each team’s accomplishments while maintaining high standards of practice for dogs that will be working in public areas.
Dogs that are well socialized and provided enriching experiences live more fulfilling lives with their people. At CCH we believe that family pet dogs who train together with future working dogs, have an incredible opportunity to develop skills that will enhance their lifestyle. Many of our classes are open to family dogs and specifically designed to improve bonding and handling.
