 Donna Hill & The Service Dog Training Institute

We’ve followed Donna Hill for many years. She’s recently grown a large audience thanks to her detailed dog training videos which break down behaviors into tiny steps that anyone can understand and use with their dogs.

She’s taking this success one step further by developing an online dog training institute for anyone that needs a service dog but can’t necessarily afford to purchase one or hire a trainer to train one.

We’re excited to share with you the details about how she got started, why she came up with the Service Dog Training Institute, and where she’s going to take it. Listen to the podcast and share your thoughts in the comments below!
