Another fantastic online course from Centre of Excellence!
The comprehensive and insightful Dog Training Diploma Course will provide you with a good academic base in the way that dogs think, learn and act. The course will provide you with a good grounding for training your own dog or offering dog training advice to others.
This is an eight-unit course, packed full of essential information that talks of dog training and behaviour in a holistic style. They teach you how to communicate with, work with, and understand dogs and what exactly they are trying to say, at all times.
The most problematic behaviours that dogs display are usually based on a lack of understanding. Each unit is packed full of current research and advice on dog training and behaviour and how you can best communicate with and train your dog.
To give students visual demonstrations of the dog training techniques discussed, the course is accompanied by video tutorials presented by a Professional Dog Trainer, which you will gain access to upon enrolling on the course. The following topics are taught in the videos:
The Dog Training Diploma Course also teaches you how you can use your new skills to help others, on a personal and professional basis, what you need to do in order to become a dog trainer and how to become as knowledgeable and professional as you possibly can be.
Whilst dog training is a self-regulated profession at the moment it’s important that you use this course as a base of knowledge then continue to study, all of the recommendations for further study will be described within the course and the information described within will certainly be a good start in a dog training career if that’s a route you wish to pursue.
This course will also work perfectly with our other related courses on canine nutrition, behaviour and holistic therapy.
