What Will You Learn?

This comprehensive, insightful and accredited Dog Training 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.

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.

Video Content

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:

  • Target
  • Clicker Dog Training
  • Basic Handling
  • Lure and Capture
  • Shaping Behaviour
  • Wait
  • Walking to Heel
  • Watch Me

Who Would Benefit from This Course?

This online Dog Training 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.

This course will also work perfectly with our other related courses on canine nutrition, behaviour and holistic therapy.
