Working With Pets Is Great:
Getting Paid To Work With Pets Is

Don't you wish all dogs and cats had the benefit of good nutrition and good health?

The truth is, the pet food industry is a multi-billion dollar business. And that means dogs and cats can sometimes become the victims of greed.

The good news is that there are people like you who want to help companion animals live long and healthy lives - and there are millions of pet owners who are waiting for you to help them.

But how do you stand out from the competition? Do you feel 100% confident in your skills and training?

This is why I created DNM University.

As somebody who wanted to work in the pet industry myself, I know how hard it is to truly become an expert in pet food nutrition - and I was fortunate that I was able to connect with some of the best holistic veterinarians and pet nutrition experts who taught me everything I know today ...

... and everything I share with millions of pet owners every week.

Well, now I want to share my access to the top industry insiders with you in an exciting new training and certification program.

It doesn't matter whether you want to create a team of pet nutrition rockstars, start your own pet consulting business the RIGHT way, or just get the facts you need to make better nutrition choices for your own pets: DNM University is here to help you change lives.

If you want to:

    • Boost your career (or start a new one)
    • Learn proven action plans and analysis rules
    • Expand your skills and distance yourself from the competition
    • Supercharge your pet blog site with in-depth, life changing articles and guides
    • Build a team of knowledgeable, friendly staff

    The DNM University certification is for you.

    Choose your first course and together we'll make the world a better place for cats and dogs.

    We Deliver The Ultimate Dream Team

    DNM University Certification Courses are unique. Our course instructors aren't just vets or bloggers - they're in the trenches and they're sought-after pet food formulators and top industry experts. These are the people with PhDs who teach veterinarians about pet nutrition - but they're also advocates of whole, natural foods and holistic medicine. 

    Getting Certified is Easy!

    There Are Only 3 Simple Steps...

    Step 1: Take The Course

    Each Certification Course is between 7 and 10 hours of video training and contains downloadable handouts and exercises. Most classes can be completed in a weekend if you're working on them full-time, but 7 to 14 days is the recommended time to complete each course. 

    Step 2: Pass The Test

    Once you complete the course, you'll be able to sit for the final exam (which is taken online). The exam isn't tricky, but you'll need a passing grade of 75% to get certified and you can take the test up to three times. If you don't receive a passing grade after the third attempt, you'll be required to go back through the course again. The exam should take from 30 to 60 minutes to complete and consists of 75 multiple choice questions.

    Step 3: Get Your Certificate And Badge

    Upon successful completion of the course and exam, you'll receive a personalized badge and certificate. Your badge leverages Mozilla's Open Badges Project, so it can be displayed in places that matter, including your website, email signature or LinkedIn profile. Plus you'll receive a full color certificate that's suitable for framing so you can display your achievement.

    Train In All 3 Critical Core
    Disciplines Of Pet Nutrition

    Choose just one specialty or combine all three core courses for an advanced designation and your Dog And Cat Nutrition Mastery Certification. Choose the certification that's right for you (and your team).
