What You’ll Learn in a Behavior & Obedience Dog Trainer Program

No matter what specific dog training you’re interested in, you’ll need to use proper behavior and obedience techniques to have dogs work with you in a positive manner.

If you’re interested in becoming a behavior and obedience dog trainer, or are looking to become a dog trainer of any kind, a behavior and obedience program is a great starting point.

You’ll learn how to reinforce good behaviors, correct problems, and learn other important techniques that will put your career on the right path.

How to reinforce obedience, positive behaviors

Our Behavior and Obedience classes teach prospective dog trainers how to work with dogs, not against them, to bring out their best traits.

You will learn how to reinforce good behaviors to let the dog know what they’re doing is acceptable. Leashed and off-leash behavior and obedience techniques will be taught so you can operate on a professional, advanced level.

Upon completion of the program, you’ll be able to reinforce these good behaviors and teach obedience to both puppies and mature dogs of all breeds.  

Ways to correct problem behaviors, developmental issues

In this type of program you will learn to work with dogs who are being aggressive towards humans and/or other dogs. You’ll learn how to identify problem behaviors and how to create a plan for treatment.

You will understand the importance of socialization for puppies and dogs, and how to work with dogs that have breeding-related issues and much more.

These classes are designed to treat these behaviors in an intellectual way that is both safe and effective.

The basics of running a business
