DogNostics Dog Training Philosophy

Manners/obedience, agility, rally, heelwork, freestyle, scent-work… Service dog, search & rescue dog, sniffer dog, guide dog, show dog, companion pet dog… Whatever the sport, job or task, we encompass all behaviors under the heading of “tricks”. Tricks can be lots of fun and yes, they are great for showing off your companion’s skills, but, more importantly, calling all behaviors tricks enables both guardians and their dogs to learn together in a fun environment that both inspires creativity and builds new skills, many of which can be put to good use in day to day life!

The DogNostics Dog Training program focuses on the learner/trainer bond, your skill-set and your knowledge. DogNostics trainers do not just focus on the goal behavior, they focus on happy learners, strong foundations and all the steps needed to successfully accomplish the desired behavior!

We believe that everyone should know how to train their pet using science based, rewards based, force-free training. You’ll never have more fun learning than when taking this exciting DogNostics Course!  You will also be learning in one of the most esteemed online colleges, mentored by pet industry leaders!

I have learned so much more about the science and mechanics of training.  They have totally inspired me to delve deeper into subjects I thought I knew. I feel TrickMeister has already made me a better trainer."  Sandra Lacroix
