The School for Dog Trainers – the global leader in canine education – is pleased to announce the opening of its new Southeast Campus in Hanceville, Alabama. The Southeast Campus will welcome its first students in January 2021.
Since 2006, the School for Dog Trainers has provided world-class canine education based out of its dedicated dog training facility in Harmony, North Carolina. In that time, students from over thirty countries have studied proven, science-driven dog training programs, including the popular 24-week Master Dog Trainer program.
The immersive curriculum at the School for Dog Trainers has provided the ideal basis for many graduates to begin their career in the dog training industry, and many have even started their own dog training businesses.

The Southeast Campus will be headed up by Training Director, Corey Archer.
Corey has worked as Highland Canine’s dog trainer located in Alabama for a number of years, building a reputation as a trusted, knowledgeable figure. He has been a fixture of working dog training programs delivered by Highland Canine Training to K9 teams from across the globe. Now, Corey intends to teach the next generation of dog trainers, welcoming them to the newly-opened Southeast Campus.
“This is an extremely exciting time at Highland Canine and the School for Dog Trainers,” said Corey. “A lot of preparation and planning has gone into this project, and we can’t wait to welcome the first students through our doors in January.
Our programs have consistently produced great results for our graduates, who continue to experience success in this highly competitive field. I know the students who graduate here at the Southeast Campus will go on to make a difference to the lives of dogs – and their owners.”
Jason Purgason, President of Highland Canine Training, LLC, commented:
“The opening of the Southeast Campus in Alabama is a reflection of the success and popularity of the programs we’ve been delivering at our Main Campus for fifteen years. Our students love our programs, and many of them go on to forge successful careers in the dog training industry as a result of them.
This new campus is great for Highland Canine; great for anyone considering a career in dog training; and eventually, will be great for dog owners across the nation. The dog trainers we produce use scientific methods to resolve problematic behaviors, no matter how difficult or severe they might be – and that can only be a good thing for building the human-canine bond.”
The Southeast Campus will open in January 2021.
