Shadow Program





Love working with dogs? Interested in becoming a professional dog trainer? Looking to sharpen your skills?

Whether you’ve been training dogs for 10 days or 10 years, the KeenDog Shadow Program can help you take your training skills and business acumen to the next level.

We offer a three-week shadowing program (Monday – Saturday). Enrollment is open on a rolling basis throughout the year.

As part of this program, you will temporarily become part of our team – attending team meetings and training, shadowing lessons and groups classes, and learning the ins and outs of our training system. During the three weeks, you will have multiple meetings with the owner and head trainer of KeenDog to discuss progress and ask questions. If interested, you will also have the opportunity to learn how we handle the backend of our business.

Over the course of the three weeks, you will get hands on practice handling and training a wide variety of dogs. You’re welcome to bring your own dog(s) along as well!

The cost of participation does not include transportation or room and board, though we would be happy to make recommendations for local hotels and Airbnb’s.

Training will take place at our home base in Fort Mill, SC and at various locations around the greater Charlotte, NC area.
