Each component of assessment must be passed to complete the course. The specific requirements for each piece of assessment will be clearly marked on the module descriptor.

There will always be an instructor available to help with any questions or worries you have as you go through this course and the material has been designed to be as clear and thorough as possible.


Career Opportunities & Progression


This programme is designed as a short introduction with only a small practical component.

It does not qualify you to become a dog trainer or behaviourist. It does, however provide a solid grounding to allow the learner to make decisions on whether or not to pursue such a career.

You can progress onto our Pet Boarding & Dog Training Internship Programme where you will assist in dog training classes with our Senior Trainers & gain hands on experience working in our boarding facility. Majority off our staff are all past internship students.
