What Will You Learn?

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. Based only on the most up-to-date research, kindest methods, and training advice that has been scientifically proven time and time again, 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. We teach you how to communicate with, work with, and understand dogs and what exactly they are trying to say, at all times.

Become a Professional Dog Trainer

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.
