Naughty Boyz Dog Training is HIRING!
Contract Position Available: Professional Dog Trainer
Naughty Boyz Dog Training is a family-owned professional dog training company dedicated to the art of positive reinforcement. Our goal is to educate as many families as possible about positive reinforcement techniques and why they are the leading approach in dog training today, and incorporating principles from this theory by teaching new behaviours and modifying existing behaviours in fun, effective, and engaging ways. We work with all types of breeds and behaviours, and there are no challenges too big or too small. Our love for our dogs is equal to our dedication to our humans. We currently offer private training, semi-private training, zoom online training, doggie day school, puppy- and teen- socials, and our 1 year Certified Dog Trainer program. At NBDT there is never a shortage of new ideas and we are always excited to support ideas that our trainers are passionate about! We are currently partnered with two amazing rescue organizations (Humane Animal Rescue Team Edmonton & Infinite Woofs Animal Rescue Society), as well as the Millwoods East Veterinary Clinic. We are also proud members of the Alberta Force Free Alliance and are regular contributors to the CBC 6pm Edmonton News. On March 1st, 2021, we will be celebrating our two-and-a-half-year anniversary and we would now like to expand our team!
