Become an affiliate and you'll receive 50% of all revenue from any new student you send to 

First, enroll in either the Top Dog Academy or the Dog Lover's Library and then email us at to let us know you would like to become an Affiliate. Within a few days, we will enable your account so that you'll have access to the Affiliate section of that includes your unique, personalized link, which you can share with your friends, clients, colleagues, and online networks to alert them to the free and subscription courses at Dunbar Academy. 

When anyone uses your unique link for their FIRST VISIT to our website that student becomes linked to your affiliate account. If they register for a course within 30 days of that first visit, the link becomes permanent and all subscriptions and purchases they make will count towards your earnings. 

For example, for all new students you get to enroll in one of our subscription courses — The Dog Lover's Library or the Top Dog Academy — you will receive 50% of the net revenue from their monthly subscriptions for as long as they remain actively enrolled.

Paypal is required. Our credit card processor takes a small percentage but the remaining net revenue is split 50-50 between yourself and Dunbar Academy. Pay-outs will be made via PayPal quarterly, at the beginning of January, April, July & October. Pay-outs will include revenue from all payments that are at least 30 days old, which gives customers the opportunity to request a refund in the first 30 days after they make a purchase. Pay-outs will be sent, via PayPal, to the email address associated with your Dunbar Academy account, unless you tell us otherwise.

Our affiliate program offers a unique opportunity: 1. To educate prospective, new and current puppy/dog owners and dog professionals in your community, or anywhere in the world for that matter, by broadcasting the availability of our free educational courses; 2. To brand your business in your community as one that is taking that extra step to make a difference and change and improve the lives of dogs and their owners; 3. To generate a passive ongoing income while doing so; and 4. To use our courses as an adjunct to dog behavior/training classes and consultations. We have long thought that factual learning does not belong in classrooms or consultations. Classroom time is just too precious and should be reserved for hands-on training and not squeezed out by lecture. 

Factual learning is best accomplished at the students’ convenience, online and primarily at home. Rather than you having to re-create the wheel, your Student’s homework may comprise a list of links to selected parts of the Dog Lover’s Library, e.g., the sections on Behavior Problems, Puppy Training and Dog Training, with your notations indicating the relative importance and urgency of each section and any changes that you would like to offer. Now, even if all class and consultation time is reserved for hands-on training and dealing with problems, this comprises only a tiny part of training; puppies and dogs are best trained at home and in the neighborhood. An online video tutor can be an invaluable aid.
