Sean Killoran

I have been training and teaching since 2008, specializing in obedience and dog behavior. I have a true passion for teaching others who want to gain a closer bond with their dogs. I received my professional certification after two years of intensive schooling studying breed’s origins, their behavior characteristics, health issues and practical time training. I managed the vocational school for Dog Trainers at the school I received my certification for several years after I graduated.

My training background is extensive and includes having graduated from a private vocational school in Alpharetta, Georgia and being certified by the State of Georgia for dog trainer education. My certification is honored throughout the United States as well as internationally.

Upon graduation, taught at the vocational school from 2009-2014, while building Follow My Lead.
