Diploma Course

Course Overview


This course provides a twelve week introduction to animal behaviors and dog training techniques. Students then will use the practical knowledge they have learned and put it in place during practical sessions.
The course is designed to give you a broad understanding of the Domestic Dog; their domestication, breed varieties, methods of communication, ways of learning and potential behavioral issues as well as exploring training history, training terminology, equipment, developing training skills and investigating specific training methods used in dog training organisations.

Here at the DSPCA we use our Train With Kindness method which will be used throughout all practical sessions.
You will receive weekly homework & assignments which must be completed & submitted by the date given by your teacher.
