Join the Andrea Arden Dog Training Team!

Dog training is a very rewarding career. It’s important to remember that dog training is a service profession in which you will be working with people who have dogs. You are working with animals – but you are primarily working with people.


We strongly recommend that you read the excellent book, “So You Want to be a Dog Trainer” (2nd Edition), by Nicole Wilde. It contains a wealth of information from a professional dog trainer for any aspiring dog trainer. Volunteering with shelters and local rescue will also introduce you to a range of canine personalities and breeds.

Apprenticeship to become a dog trainer is a long term commitment but the length of time to complete this apprenticeship is dependent on student dedication. There is no formal apprenticeship system in dog training, but the opportunity to work with experienced dog trainers and a large variety of dogs is essential to your education. To be sure that dog training is the right career choice for you, working part-time or full-time job in another position should be considered while you complete our program. The program will guide the serious student through all of the aspects of positive dog training.

Dog Trainers

Currently certified instructors applying for a position should be knowledgeable about clicker training, use positive dog training methods and be committed to those, interested in continuing to attain knowledge in the dog training profession and view teaching classes and private instruction as a partnership between trainer and student – and love dogs!

Working at Andrea Arden Dog Training

We offer dog training classes at several locations in New York City throughout the year and trainers travel to offer private lessons across the city. We also offer specialty classes, workshops, and private in-home training. If you are selected to join Andrea Arden Dog Training as an apprentice or dog trainer the team is dynamic and experienced and will support you to ensure that you excel in your role. Everyone shares their experience & knowledge so that we all succeed.

We also focus on trainers advancing their special skills and interests within the dog training profession. We provide our trainers with all of the resources they need to succeed in a structured but casual and open environment. This is why many excellent dog trainers have apprenticed, become trainers, and chosen to train dogs at Andrea Arden Dog Training over the last 18 years. We seek people with integrity who approach their work and co-workers with respect. As we grow, positions regularly open at Andrea Arden Dog Training.
