At e-Training for Dogs we are extremely pleased to be able to offer a comprehensive canine behavior consultant educational program to assist dog trainers and enthusiasts to enter the exciting and rewarding career of dog behavior consulting.
Prerequisites: A basic knowledge of dogs as well as enthusiasm and interest in educating owners and their dogs to become well mannered participants in society.
Purpose: The canine behavior consultant specializes in working with dogs and their people to solve behavior problems. Slightly different from the Associate Dog Training Certificate that concentrates on training fundamental dog behaviors, the canine behavior consultant concentrates on eliminating problem dog behaviors. Learn canine behavior consulting and dog behavior from theory to application, from puppy training to advanced dog training. Essential for anyone interested in the study of dogs, dog behavior and for those working with dogs in any capacity.
General Certificate Information: Individuals who are passionate about improving their bonds with their own dogs or desire to become a dog behaviorist would greatly benefit from this unique program. You will explore key areas such as: How dogs developed to be our companions, psychology of dogs (how they learn), canine body language and how they interpret our body language, and problem dog behavior solutions. Our program allows the flexibility for students with varying life experiences and interests to take courses that will enhance their skills and get them closer to realizing their goal of working with dogs as a profession.
Accreditation: Since there are no formal Accrediting agencies in the United States or Canada for Canine Behavior Consultants, we have done our best to make sure that our courses are approved by the top organizations both Nationally and Internationally. As such, all of our courses are approved by the IAABC, NADOI and the CCPDT for Continuing Education Credits and Educational Events. Some schools claim they are approved by their State, but this is only as a business offering educational products, NOT true accreditation. ONLY a University has the ability to offer true accreditation.
Please note: This is not an “email” or “mail order” Certificate. Though it is available 100% over the internet, this is a very “hands on” program when required. Skills learned must be demonstrated by video submissions to your instructors. (NOTE: Not all courses require videos). This is an intensive program and you will need to demonstrate your learning. The power of the internet allows sending videos as homework and final exams easy and effective. We are the first and only school that adheres to these strict measures and our students are respected as a result. We also do more than train you how to use a clicker. We provide the theory behind the skills to our students.
