Dog Behaviour And Training
What's it all about?
There are many reasons why people choose to go into a career with dogs. Some may enjoy the freedom of being outside the office. Some might like the idea of working for themselves. But most of us do it because of our deep love for our canine friends. Dedicating our time to improving the life of dogs and the humans who work with them is a worthwhile cause.
This online Dog Behaviour and Training Certificate offers you the opportunity to kick start your career working with dogs. Students that study this course often tell us that they've always dreamed of launching their own business that allows them to work with their canine friends. With dedication and commitment its easier than ever to apply your passion for dogs into a rewarding and fulfilling career.
Career opportunities may include:
- General obedience trainer
- Dog behaviourist
- Training dogs for people with disabilities
- Training search and rescue dogs
- Training dogs for the entertainment industry
- Training dogs for the military and law enforcement
- Training dogs for sport
- Training disabled dogs
- Dog walking/pet sitting
- Doggy day care / boarding kennels assistant
Many of the dogs who face a life at the shelter are in that position because of ‘bad’ behaviour that their human family couldn't deal with. If people take the time to train their dogs, that kind of unhappy ending would not be commonplace. And yes, it can be time-consuming with no quick fix, but who could put a price on true friendship? Which is what dogs give you. Pursuing a career in dog training could give you an opportunity to help a family communicate effectively with their dog and save the relationship (and therefore possibly the dog). Being the instrument that helps a dog and her humans maintain the bond of friendship is truly beyond inspiring.
