On February 1, 2014, Charles (Chan) Duckworth successfully earned a certificate as a Dog Trainer by completing an intensive “train the trainer ” dog training course with Michael Burkey, President and Dog Behaviorist at Michigan Dog Trainer Academy, a division of Michigan Dog Training Inc. (MDT) in Plymouth, Michigan.

Duckworth participated in private training and mentoring with Burkey and he observed group classes with his lead trainer, Wendy Bemis. Additionally, Duckworth participated  as a student with his German Shepherd puppy “Demo” in MDT’s puppy socialization and training course. Duckworth was schooled in:  Learning theory, behavioral consultations, dog aggression cases, pet and sport dog obedience, remote collar training, protection dog decoying, among others. Duckworth said his learning experience was very beneficial for him in becoming a dog trainer.

And, his training doesn’t stop there. He is going to continue his education at MDT during the next six months to earn a MDT “certification” as a dog trainer. Burkey commented, “Chan came to the program with some natural training skills and he is a very quick learner. He will be a great dog trainer due to his skills, passion, integrity, love for dogs and natural ability to connect well with others. I look forward to the second half of our mentoring and training program together.”
