What Will This Course Enable Me to Do?

This leading-edge online course has been developed to not only perpetuate our strengths but also to surpass the weaknesses of other inferior online courses:

  1. In our online course, the student trains dogs on his/her own and at times with the oversight of certified dog trainers who are experienced instructors as well.  We can correct bad training habits in up-and-coming dog trainers before they are developed.  In other online courses, your training “experience” comes from working with Shelters (or equivalent) where there are few (or no one) who can critique whether you’re training correctly or incorrectly.  Therein you could be learning incorrect habits and not even know it.
  2. Oversight and interaction with a professional certified dog trainer is one of the strengths of our course. Throughout the course, the student will have opportunities for video sharing and interaction with one of our instructors.  We will observe your training and critique it accordingly.  It’s the next best thing to face-to-face instruction.  Other online courses have little interaction with an experienced trainer certified through applied testing and proven ability.  Some even have a rather dry, distant approach.
  3. Our courses include training theory but also make a major emphasis upon actual, hands-on, practical training experience. The student gets the opportunity to implement the theory they have learned.  All of this is given with feedback and oversight from an experienced trainer.  You learn what to do and what not to do as a trainer.  Other online courses major in training theory with little realistic emphasis on hands-on training – in spite of powerful ads stating otherwise.
  4. Our courses are handled by dog trainers, not marketers. That is, the student gets to interact with another trainer – not just a professional sitting at a desk and typing information back and forth, or a marketer who can tell you what you want to hear.  Their courses are handled by marketing professionals who are trained to tell you just what you want to hear.  Our courses are handled by dog training professionals who will help you to reinforce good training habits and reduce poor habits.
