About Canine Trade Group – National Network of Expert Dog Trainers!

Canine Trade Group is a national network of dog trainers committed to the same high standards of professionalism, ethics, and results. We are not a franchise; rather, we are an exclusive network of independently-owned dog training businesses united by our approach to dog training. Each of us utilizes the same results-based approach that has been used for over 25 years with an incredible rate of success.

Regardless of our individual backgrounds and experience, each of us completes the Professional Dog Trainer’s Course taught by John Van Olden. This course includes several weeks of study on the subjects of canine learning theory, the history of dog training, dog training approaches, and more. We then complete a hands-on, in-residence program working with both rescue dogs (those labeled “unadoptable”), and every day family pets whose behavior puts them at risk for surrender, or worse.

We have trainers in many different locations, including Boston, Brooklyn, Philadelphia, DC, Pittsburgh, Richmond, Columbus, Cleveland, Cincinnati, IndianapolisDallas/Fort Worth, Atlanta, Baltimore, North Jersey, Virginia Beach/Norfolk, AshevilleConnecticut, JacksonvilleOrlando and Tampa. Our network is still growing, so check back soon if we don’t currently have a dog trainer in your area.

Our trainers work closely with local veterinarians. We understand that behavioral health and physical health sometimes overlap, and have a high respect for the input a veterinarian can provide. For more information about our relationship with veterinarians and our approach to total canine wellness, please visit our Canine Behavioral Wellness site.
