If you’ve thought about taking your dog walking business to the next level, it’s getting easier and easier. The dog*tec Dog Walking Academy is now in 15 locations and growing. We’re truly thrilled to have such an incredible team of talented and passionate instructors bringing this level of education to walkers across the country.

It used to be that professional walkers looking to elevate their canine knowledge and lend the credibility of certification to their businesses had to travel to the original dog*tec location in San Francisco. Now you can attend the Dog Walking Academy in:

  • Austin, TX
  • Chicago, IL
  • Grand Rapids, MI
  • Indianapolis, IN
  • New York City, NY
  • Murphy, NC
  • Phoenix, AZ
  • San Diego, CA
  • San Francisco, CA
  • Seattle, WA
  • Swanzey, NH

And if you’re out of the States or looking for an excuse to travel:

  • Auckland, New Zealand
  • Effingham, UK
  • Vancouver, BC
  • Wellington, New Zealand

Watch for additional cities as dog*tec continues to find instructors able to live up to the high standards of the program. 2015 will see the addition of classes in Calgary, Portland, Utah City, Toronto, and Sao Paulo, Brazil.
