IACP Hall of Fame!

Heather Beck is honored to be included in the Hall of Fame for the International Association of Canine Professionals (IACP). Heather joined the IACP in 2006 so that she could learn and receive mentorship from some of the greatest dog trainers around. Throughout the years she improved her skillset and expanded her network. Now, nearly 20 years later, she serves as a mentor to dozens of IACP members as they progress through their dog training journey. 

The International Association of Canine Professionals is dedicated to the education, development and support of dog training professionals world-wide. It is an immense honor to be included in the hall of fame among so many inspirational members.

Her "failing forward" mindset encourages her to view setbacks as stepping stones, fueling her continuous innovation in the realm of animal care.
