How does the Apprenticeship work? What's the Timeline?

"The path is here for those who are ready to learn, grow, and show up to make a change"

My vision for every apprentice is that they make it all the way to be a part of my team because that's the culture here. Set a goal and let's achieve it together.  We learn how to support those in our community.  Whatever you need: Access to more trainers, books, classes, videos, in-person shadowing...You name it and I'll find it for you (and it's on me).

Do you have what it takes? I bet you do.

Requirements before applying

  • Applicant has a (mostly) trained dog, meaning my dog can be properly crated, has a solid place stay, can walk on a loose lead, and has worked through most reactivity issues to manageability.   *no one is perfect; I'm not looking for perfect; but I'm also not looking for people that should be clients first*

  • Applicant is focused on contributing to the missing of the OPEN MINDED APPROACH which is preventing dogs going into shelters by organically sewing dog training into their community and into the lives of those around them with tolerance and compassion. Using wisdom from many areas to best help the clients.

  • Realize you are a continual student that knows they will never master dog training; it is to be practiced with joy and positivity as you continuously change as a person.

  • Applicant doesn't not and will not slander, bully, or harass other dog trainers or owners for their choices.  Instead seek to gain a greater understanding of their perspective. 

  • Applicant is ready to work. HARD.  And does not make excuses.

  • Applicant is a good teammate and wishes to improve in that area as they see the benefit to the greater dog community.

Im Chisara.


Sensi came to me as a 3-year old with a whole fun bag full of challenges. During the years we've spent together, I realised that in order to meet his needs, I'd really have to buckle down and learn more about dog training. In the process of learning how to help him manage the challenges he faces as a high-drive/reactive dog, and also create a foundation for him that would enable us to live a full and adventurous life, I discovered that I enjoy dog training and more so, handler coaching which is more explicitly what I do. TPA's open and inclusive approach is what sold me on this particular programme. I'd like to be a part of a community that makes safe spaces for all those working towards doing the best they can for the dog and handler in front of them, while also promoting a continuous learning mindset.

June Apprentices

Hello there! My name is Rozlynn and I'm a balanced trainer located in a suburb south of Cleveland, Ohio. My pack members include Prince (Poodle mix), Copper (Husky), Piston (German Shepherd), Lucy & Bagel (cats).  

Since I can remember, I've always had a huge passion for animals, especially dogs. A few years back, I took in my adult Husky who had zero training. I remember the long days and nights filled with frustration and mental exhaustion. At times I felt hopeless. That's when my dog training journey began. I completely immersed myself into the canine world by watching videos, reading books, listening to podcasts, attending seminars and doing endless research in order to help my dog. Fast forward a few years, I decided to start my own dog walking/training and pet care business (Propper Pet). Now I'm here to empower other struggling owners just like you!

My ultimate training mission is to help owners live a happy & calm life with their dogs while also decreasing the number of dogs from being rehomed and surrendered to shelters through empowerment, education and knowledge owners need to succeed with their dogs.
