Carlos Hernandez

Carlos is a veteran of working with people to create a better life with their dogs.  He is a native of Puerto Rico and spent most of his life in San Juan.  Carlos worked for 16 years in the mortgage and real estate industry when he decided to pursue his lifelong passion for working with dogs and people.  Carlos has been working with dogs professionally since 2009 and owned his own pet training business “Canino” in San Juan for many years. During this time, he also assisted the D.A.S.H.A. Program with training therapy and service dogs and their handlers. In 2017, he joined the team at Highland Canine Training, LLC and has since worked as a trainer in our Service Dog Programs.  The passion and enthusiasm that Carlos has for working with service dogs and their owners is readily seen in his work.  He has trained and delivered scores of service dogs throughout the US and the Caribbean.  Carlos continues to serve as a liaison with the D.A.S.H.A Program to coordinate Service Dog training and donations on behalf of Highland Canine Training, LLC.  In addition to training dogs and people, Carlos also serves as an Instructor and brings his experience and perspective to our students of the Service Dog Trainer Course at the School for Dog Trainers.

Carlos is a graduate of the Metropolitan University of Puerto Rico with a degree in Marketing and Management.
