What is TEAM?

TEAM is an online titling program created by fellow trainer Denise Fenzi. In a nutshell, the exercises are all centered around something that we at Cognitive Dogs are obsessed with: REALLY GREAT TRAINING.

“TEAM is an acronym for “Training Excellence Assessment Modules,” which perfectly describes our goal; a progression-oriented titling program that emphasizes excellence in training.  Each TEAM level adds complexity for the dog-handler team in four areas:  the difficulty of the skills being assessed, the potential challenges in the form of food and toy distractions, the challenge of the actual testing location, and finally the quantity of reinforcement allowed during the test.  The dog-handler team is presented with a wide range of interesting skills to master right from the start.”
