Animal Career Academy empowers individuals passionate about companion animals to achieve personal, academic and career fulfillment.


ACA’s purpose is to...

further educate individuals about canines in their totality in order to better understand and relate to these unique beings; and in doing so, enrich the lives of humans.


educate students for vocations in diverse fields of animal care and to encourage awareness of the caregiver's unique role in improving the relationship of dogs and human beings;


teach students to expertly do the work they like; to master the skills/crafts of their intended occupations; and to discover alternative opportunities to employ their talents in settings other than their workplace.


offer continuing educational opportunities so individuals already working with dogs have the opportunity to learn about the latest theories and understanding of each dog, as well as practices, techniques and equipment related to professional canine care.
