Fulfill Your Calling: Become a Certified Service Dog Trainer Online

Are you passionate about helping people and dogs live fulfilling lives together? Do you dream of making a difference by training Service Dogs to empower individuals with disabilities? Learn how to train service dogs online with the  Dog Trainer College’s comprehensive online program that equips you with the knowledge, skills, and certification needed to excel in this rewarding field. Students are encouraged to also attend on-site (for up to a week) at our training center during an ongoing service dog trainer course…at no extra charge! This will aid in the hands-on aspect of dog training. Be advised that there are prerequisites for your visit.  The visit is designed to be towards the end of the course.  Therefore, at the time of your visit, you and your dog will need to be on cold trails and the task training should be rather solid. Your visit will help to expand the skills of both you and your dog.  Check with us for available dates. If you are not far enough along in by one of these dates, you must wait until the next available date.
