Support Dog Trainer Education for BIPOC

Raising funds for: People who are Black, Indigenous, or otherwise of Color, who are interested in becoming a certified dog trainer through Karen Pryor Academy's Dog Trainer Professional program.

  • As part of our effort to expand our community's inclusiveness, Karen Pryor Academy offers scholarships for people who are Black, Indigenous, or of Color (BIPOC). We have been asked by members of our community if we could also facilitate individual donations to fund BIPOC training education scholarships for Karen Pryor Academy courses. This Go Fund Me page has been created in order to accept and distribute those individual donations. Funds will be distributed in amounts of $250 each to eligible, accepted applicants for the Dog Trainer Professional program as funds become available, on a first-come, first-served basis.

Please note, your donation is NOT tax-deductible.
